To TNWOHM fan's around the world,
Welcome back to another edition of the Weekend News Report. Coming at you every Saturday with the HOTTEST news in the genre! And things REALLY heated up this week when the 🇸🇪Trench Dogs🇸🇪 released the first video/single from their up coming debut. "The Gin Beat" came out earlier this week. The video was met with positive reactions. If it's any indication as to how the rest of it will sound, I'd say that they have a winner. "Year Of The Dog" is the title of the album. It's due out on August 24th. Make sure you pick up a copy.
🇺🇸WICKED🇺🇸 will be at Pineapple Jacks in Rochester on the 27th. This is the night where you will be able to purchase their debut LP "Rock N' Roll".
🇨🇦Dextress🇨🇦 made big news on Canadian television this week due to their performance on the Coca-Cola stage at the Calgary Stampede. They news clip/performance of "Guilty Man" is available to watch on YouTube. Dextress are well on their way to gaining control over western Canada. Great job, dude's!
