Rockshots Records Signs Finnish Rockers Leaflet For 2023 Album “Something Beyond”

97a204ac-82b8-fa38-7673-fdf656095591

ROCKSHOTS RECORDS is proud to announce their signing of Finnish rockers LEAFLET for the release of their sophomore album “Something Beyond” in 2023. The album follows their debut album “Outta Door” released through VR Label Finland in 2017.

The band comments on “Something Beyond”: “With this album, we are definitely showing that rock music is alive and pumping! The album is full of catchy metal-influenced rock tunes that would fit perfectly in the heavy rotation of every rock radio station. The album has a lot of variety within the songs and we got a diverse selection of singles as well. Three very different singles trying to represent the entire album as well as possible. As singles, we got one heavy and hard-hitting tune, one straightforward and super catchy tune, and one fast-paced in-your-face type of tune. You should check out them all to see what you think! 

Formed in 2013, LEAFLET is a four-piece hard rock band from Turku, Finland. Their music can be described as metal-infused American-style hard rock and while you might hear echoes of bands like Alter Bridge or Shinedown they have their own unique Nordic flavour. “Our musical cocktail is a blend of many things. Although we love the 80s, we are trying to keep our hard rock fresh and not follow the retro route”, the band says.

The band has performed on Finnish festivals such as Kuopiorock and Saaristo Open Air along with touring across their home country to support their debut album. They also spent time on the road in the Baltics with Willie & the Goodsouls in 2018 again playing clubs and festivals.

In 2019, LEAFLET released “Johnny Two-Face” as a single through VR Label Finland followed by an ambitious music video shot in both Turku, Finland, and Tokyo, Japan. After a couple of years of silence due to the pandemic, the band is now back with their second album “Something Beyond” to be released by Rockshots Records in January 2023, sounding stronger than ever.

LEAFLET is:

Jaakko Leaflet – lead vocals & guitar

Antti Kallio – guitar & backing vocals

Fabian Korsström – bass & backing vocals

Pekka Jokela – drums

Modernin rockin kotimainen yllättäjä Leaflet julkaisee uuden upean singlen ja videon

Leaflet promokuva

Parin vuoden takaisella debyytillään ylistäviä arvioita kerännyt modernin raskaan rockin yllättäjä Leaflet palaa uudella singlellä ja Tokiossa kuvatulla videolla. Johnny Two-Face kertoo tarinaa valehtelijasta, mutta kappaleessa on oikeasti suuri kertosäe!

Katso Johnny Two-Face-video nyt YouTubessa, kuuntele musiikkipalveluissa, tai lataa single pakettina toimitukselliseen käyttöön.

Leaflet on turkulainen rock-yhtye, joka musiikillisesti nojaa amerikkalaistyyppisen hard rockin tyylikeinoihin, mutta tarjoilee teksteissään alakuloisempaa mielenmaisemaa. Yhtye ei laula genrelle tyypillisesti seksistä ja alkoholista, ja jos asiaa teksteissä kuitenkin sivutaan, keskitytään juhlimisen synkempään puoleen. Leaflet tasapainoilee rockin ja metallin välimaastossa ottaen molemmista genreistä parhaat puolet. Se on monipuolisempaa kuin perinteinen kaljarock ja kekseliäämpää kuin tämän päivän radiorock. Vaikka menneet vuosikymmenet saattavat kuulua bändin ulosannissa, ei se silti sorru retroiluun.
Vuodesta 2013 lähtien toimineen yhtyeen muodostavat neljä lahjakasta ja taitavaa muusikkoa, joiden kokemus keikkalavoilta ympäri Suomea on mittava. Bändin keulahahmon Jaakko Leafletin (mm.Pressure Points, Blind Stare) läsnäolo ja karismaattinen lauluääni saa todistetusti rock-yleisöön liikettä.

Johnny Two-Face kertoo tarinan patologisesta valehtelijasta. Hahmosta, joka suurentelee asioita, vääristelee totuutta ja kylvää valkoisia valheita. Hahmosta, joka sanoo yhtä ja tekee toista, eikä vain yksinkertaisesti pysty puhumaan totta. Hahmosta, joka piiloutuu maskinsa taakse ja elää omassa valheellisessa kuplassaan.

Bändin kommentti:
”Johnny Two-Face edustaa bändin kevyempää ja melodisempaa puolta ja oli ilmiselvä valinta sinkkubiisiksi. Biisi tarjoilee ison kertosäkeen, tarttuvia melodioita ja räjähtävän soolon: mitä muuta hard rock-biisiltä voi vaatia!?”

Outta Door released – read the official statement!

Leaflet-Promo2-HIRES

Finnish modern hard rockers Leaflet released their brilliant debut album ‘Outta Door’ last Friday. With a sovereign work full of catchy riffs and melodies they flash their bottoms to gratuitous retroism! Check out the delirium reeking video on the first single ‘Chain Reaction’ for a proof.

Aged for 4 years in Finnish metal scene Leaflet delivers some reckless, cold-blooded modern hard rock with their surprisingly mature debut album. We meet a band ready and willing with huge professionalism. A band that won’t stay in the shadows of the good old days but a bunch of metalheads with their own fresh style in rocking out. Sound production operating between metal and rock is nailed by a Finnish heavy music profiled V.R. Studio and Svante Forsbäck of Chartmakers.

See ‘Chain Reaction’ video now on YouTube and listen to the album on Spotify!

Leaflet has been making music and touring in Finland since 2013. The singer/band leader Jaakko Leaflet (known from Pressure Points and Blind Stare) has a presence and a voice for the real big audiences.

Comment from the band:

‘Leaflet hits the new wave of Finnish rock music like a tsunami. The band delivers their debut album full of shameless modern hard rock with no room for retro.’
