German beer for breakfast rockers V8 WANKERS will release their now sixth album “Iron Crossroads” worldwide through Steamhammer / SPV. The album was produced by Tommy Newton (well known for his work with Bands like Helloween, Terry Hoax, Guano Apes, UFO and many others) and the band sounds better and fresher than ever before. Big-Blog-Motor Rock at it’s best.
