The New Wave of Hair Metal Weekend News Report August 11, 2018

To TNWOHM fan's around the world,

Greetings all of you hair metallers, sleazers, and glam rockers to another edition of the Weekend News Report. We are in the middle of a flashback weekend where I've been playing every video/single that you have voted for since March 2017.

🇩🇪Kissin' Dynamite🇩🇪 have their own brand of Whisky Wurst available in stores in Germany. I wish I could try it! They played in Berlin on the 6th. They have a few more gigs planned for this month as well. They'll be in Obrigrheim on the 24th, and then in Konigstein on the 25th.

🇺🇸Steel Panther🇺🇸 were in the news again for controversy. They have a new guitar pedal available called the "Pussy Melter", and certain groups found it offensive. The band is continuing to release it. It was at the Fear The Riff expo today. It'll be available up til October 1st.
