As a lifelong hard rock / metal fan, Breuer has often incorporated loud music into his comedy stand-up, so it seemed only natural for him to take the next step and start his own band. Over the past few years, the Jim Breuer band has performed at premier festivals such asRock on The Range (with Guns N Roses and Avenged Sevenfold), the Motorboat cruise (with Motorhead and Megadeth), Metallica’s Orion Music Festival, Sonisphere in the UK (with Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer, and Anthrax), and the headlining stage at Wacken in Germany. Now, under a new moniker (Jim Breuer and the Regulators), the group plans to release their debut in April 2016, with various special guests appearing on the record. 

Complete details about the album will be revealed soon, but in the meantime, fans can tune into Breuer’s “The Metal in Me” podcast for additional news and information: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/jimbreuerspodcast. The first three episodes are already online with more to be added each week, about finding the comedy, reality, and metal in us all – the perfect mix in life!

Metal Blade Records Chairman/CEO Brian Slagel comments: “We are super excited to be working with Jim Breuer. His is a comedy legend and this album is something truly special. You will be surprised in a good way when you hear it!”

Named one of Comedy Central’s 100 Greatest Stand-Ups of All Time, Breuer is one of the most recognizable comedians in the business, known for his charismatic stage antics, dead-on impressions, and family-friendly stand-up. Breuer got his big break in 1995 when he joined the cast of NBC’s legendary “Saturday Night Live”, where he became a fan-favorite for his original character “Goat Boy” and his dead-on impressions of actor Joe Pesci. Since then, Breuer has starred in popular films, hosted various TV shows, and appeared on numerous programs as a special guest – in addition to keeping busy on his current comedy tour.
