It was a secret show; announced on the Social Network and promoted as the band name Jam Prancer, but those in the know were quick to share that the band was none other than the historically and politically incorrect kings of sexual perversion – Steel Panther. Known for their well rehearsed debauchery and having less than just six months ago given up their residency at the House Of Blues Hollywood, the news from the band was that the North American bus tour would keep them from returning to Hollywood for the foreseeable future. On Wednesday, August 13th, it was clear that the band would not miss the opportunity to return and celebrate with the long standing establishment that continues to dominate the Sunset Strip’s performance scene, the Viper Room and it’s 21st Anniversary Week of shows.

Steel Panther was, for a long time, rock’s best-kept secret: a cult legend on the LA scene. But in recent years due to the success of their albums (both debuted at #1 on the Billboard Comedy Album Charts), and live shows, the band has enjoyed huge acclaim from fans and peers alike. Steel Panther has been joined on stage by rock and roll icons such as Steven Tyler of Aerosmith, Paul Stanley of KISS, Corey Taylor of Slipknot, Tom Morello of Rage Against The Machine/Audioslave, Chester Bennington of Linkin Park and Green Day to name a few. Steel Panther has also been seen on Dancing With The Stars, Bad Girl’s Club and most recently in a national web campaign for Warner Brothers Pictures hit film, Rock Of Ages.
The Sunset Strip’s hottest export, Steel Panther, is back and ready to unleash their third full-length album, All You Can Eat, on the world. The 12-track masterpiece is slated to hit stands April 1st in the United States on Open E Records via Kobalt Label Services (KLS). The album will be available for pre-order on January 14th at http://www.steelpantherrocks.com. From the opening acoustic riff of album opener “Pussywhipped” to final chord hit in the album closer “She’s On The Rag,” it is clear Steel Panther is back and better than ever. Songs like “Gloryhole,” “Gangbang At The Old Folks Home” and “BVS” all showcase Steel Panther’s incredible musicianship and ability to write memorable and sometimes educational songs. The band, comprised of Michael Starr on vocals, Satchel on guitar, Lexxi Foxx on bass and Stix Zadinia on drums, have made a name for themselves as one of the most entertaining acts out today. The debut single “Party Like Tomorrow Is The End Of The World,” was released in November with a star-studded video directed by Rob Riggle that has been viewed over 660,000 times. The explicit video for the song can be seen at http://smarturl.it/sppartyvd. Longtime Steel Panther producer Jay Ruston produced All You Can Eat.

Death To All But Metal – Steel Panther rocks the Sunset Strip

Review by Metalette
I love hair metal, and I’m not afraid to say it. My love for it goes back to discovering Mӧtley Crϋe at 13 years old, and delving into the whole world of the 80s glam scene as a result. It was pure rock’n’roll fun, and I got my best friends into it, and we ran around like little hair-metal chickies and thumbed our noses at all the kids listening to Panic! At the Disco. So I consider hair metal to be my metal “roots”, if you will, because it steered me on the path of good music at an impressionable age. Now, the only thing that makes me happier than seeing guys in kilts and war-paint onstage is seeing a stage full of guys with giant hair and shiny spandex pants. I’m even the proud owner of the “American Hair Metal encyclopedia”, which will always have a cherished space on my decorative bookshelf. Read the rest of this entry »
It was the first bus tour in the United States for Steel Panther and 88 Miles West were invited to sit in the back of the bus for a chat with Stix Zadinia (drums) and Lexxi Foxx (bass) to talk numerous things such as Lexxi’s ability to communicate with birds and makeup tips, while Stix puts on a show and offerssome driving advice. Plus, there’s a scoop on the new record.
Check out the interview here.
In the Artisan News report below, guitarist Satchel and Lexxi Foxx reveal that the band is working on music for a new album:
Steel Panther return to Canada for a pair of shows this summer:
9 – Imperial De Quebec – Quebec City, QC

REVIEW AND PICTURES BY MARKO SYRJALA
American glam metal parody band Steel Panther returned to Finland just six months after the previous visit. Although there’s no new album to promote on this round it seems that there’s still plenty of demand for these glam heroes. Last March, the Panthers played in front of 700 people in the sold out Club Nosturi and now there were about 1000 pairs of eyes packed into The Circus in Helsinki.
ALICE COOPER drummer Glen Sobel (whose other credits include Vivian Campbell, SIXX: A.M., BEAUTIFUL CREATURES and Paul Gilbert) sat in with STEEL PANTHER Monday night to play VAN HALEN’s “Hot For Teacher” at the House of Blues in West Hollywood, CA. Footage has been postage at this location:
This was Sobel’s first live appearance since being forced to take a temporary leave of absence from the ALICE COOPER summer tour due to a persistent neck injury. He is expected back with the Cooper band this Fall. Also joining STEEL PANTHER on stage during “Hot For Teacher” were Lance Turner and Joe Lester of famed VAN HALEN tribute band the ATOMIC PUNKS which STEEL PANTHER’s Russ Parrish and Ralph Saenz were long time members of.

As promised, episode #1 from the new STEEL PANTHER web series is online, with new webisodes due to be posted every Friday. Check it out below.
In other news, the band has issued the following update: “Unfortunately the show at Hellraiser in Leipzig on June 12th has been canceled due to logistical difficulties related to the venue change. Hopefully you’ll be able to rock with The Panther at one of our other dates in Germany.”

Everybody Scream, Heavy Metal’s Back!
Written in the annals of history, carved into the primordial genetic makeup of modern music and stuffed into skin tight trousers is the greatest heavy metal band in the world. The year, 1985, Hollywood California, four high school friends come together and create a band in order to get drunk, get high and most importantly get laid.
Emerging triumphantly from sunset strip, the infamous cess pit of sordid rock and roll decadence Steel Panther was born!

CLUB NOSTURI, HELSINKI
REVIEW AND PICS BY MARKO SYRJALA
Steel Panther from Los Angeles, are well known for their humorous lyrics as well as their exaggerated on-stage personas that parody and exaggerate the 80’s glam metal lifestyle. The band was formed in 2000 and the debut album FEEL THE STEEL came out in 2009. The sophomore release BALLS OUT followed in 2011. By their own words, Steel Panther are “the hottest band out of Hollywood since Motley Crue, Guns N’ Roses and Poison ruled the Sunset Strip” and it does seem that fans of those bands in Finland have accepted Steel Panther as their show here sold out within just few days.
Los Angeles’ glam metal jokesters Steel Panther have learned to celebrate the holidays in their own rockin’ style, which includes –- what else? — call girls and golden showers. So, naturally, they’ve melded the two in an x-rated version of the yuletide classic “The Twelve Days of Christmas,” which the quartet sang a cappella before a recent gig in New Jersey. Check it out in the video below and on FUSE!
STEEL PANTHER have unveiled the artwork for their new album, Balls Out. Check it out below:
The release of Balls Out has been pushed back to October 31st in the UK, and(November 1st in North America. “We aren’t happy about the extra two week wait, but the move was out of our control,” says the band. “Look at it this way – now you have more reason to whip your balls out on Halloween! Chicks are always out on Halloween seeking that perfect set of testicals to place on their face! Now you have a legitimate reason to make that happen! And if you’re feeling really ballsy, come celebrate the release and Halloween at the House of Blues Sunset with the Panther!”
“Damn the record companies! We tried everything to cheer Lexxi up; hookers, blow, new spandex… even a fresh can of AquaNet, but Balls Out getting pushed back to Oct. 31st was too much.”
Balls Out tracklisting:
‘In The Future’
‘Supersonic Sex Machine’
‘Just Like Tiger Woods’
’17 Girls In A Row’
‘If You Really Really Love Me’
‘It Won’t Suck Itself’
‘Why Can’t You Trust Me’
‘That’s What Girls Are For’
‘Gold Digging Whore’
‘I Like Drugs’
‘Let Me Cum In’
The first single from the album in North America will be ’17 Girls In A Row’. The first single from Balls Out in the UK will be ‘If You Really, Really Love Me’.
