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.
Leaflet has been making music and touring in Finland since 2013. The singer/band leader Jaakko Leaflet (known from Pressure Points andBlind 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.’
Music and lyrics: Jaakko Lehtinen
Production and arrangements: Leaflet
Production, recording and mixing: Jussi Vuola, V.R. Studio
Our first single titled ‘Chain Reaction’ from our upcoming debut album ‘Outta Door’ has been released. The official release party will be held in Baaribaari on February 24th in Turku. Check out the event on Facebook. Long story short, enjoy the video and follow us on Facebook!

Whoa! Yes, it’s official – Leaflet will publish its first album early next year through V.R. Label Finland. Naturally Mr. Jussi Vuola will be producing it. We have also signed a deal with Bad New Music who will be managing our live performances from now on.
Kiitokset kaikille perjantaina paikalla olleille! Jengiä oli hyvin paikalla ja yleisö oli loistavasti messissä koko keikan ajan. EP saatiin virallisesti ulos ja keikasta jäi mahtava fiilis! Maanantai väsyttää nyt rajusti but it’s all just your own making…
Thank you all who showed up last Friday! The vast amount of people who came to watch the show were nothing but enthusiastically with us the whole time. Now it’s official, our EP has seen the daylight and we enjoyed our night very much! We started this week with somewhat hazy and tired feelings, but hey – it’s all just your own making…

Leaflet is an interesting cocktail of “classic” modern rock – The perfect balance between rock & metal. Our band history will be revealed later, but meanwhile enjoy these compact member bios!
Jaakko 'Jazz' Leaflet
Vocals & Guitar
The mastermind behind Leaflet. 51% rockstar, 49% mad scientist. Arrogant, ruthless, and selfish when it comes to music. Some say even worse in normal life. The undisputed king of hangovers.
Favorite music: 70's & 80's hard rock
Gear: Gibson, Marshall, Engl
Drums, background vocals
The loudmouth. Takes his business seriously and builds the groove like a house. Never hits the same spot twice. Timo is literally the balls behind the drum kit.
Favorite music: 70's rock, soundtracks (mostly Zimmer)
Gear: Yamaha, Sabian, Vic Firth
Guitar, background vocals
The final piece in the puzzle. An experienced musician with a great enthusiasm and attitude. Antti is a classic 'guitar hero' type of player but a very humble guy without the ego normally associated with those 80’s shredders. Also, he looks more like a grunge-type of guy.
Favorite music: Radio NRJ
Gear: ESP, Dean, Ibanez, Marshall
The golden boy of four strings. Very good at dropping the notes where they belong but completely lacks calendar skills. Looks great in every. Single. Picture. Doesn't know what it means to 'Give up' and instead high fives every time.
Favorite music: ...apparently Finnish reggae
Gear: Fender, Markbass, beer
