Okay, I can assure you this is not an April Fools joke. This morning I interviewed the inimitable Satchel of the mighty Steel Panther for Gibson.com. You can read the full interview here, but here’s a snippet.

How’s the new album coming along?

It’s been killer. We decided to record this album in five-song chunks. We picked our top five songs that we liked, then we picked our next five, then we picked our [expletive]-iest songs at the end. So far we’ve got 10 recorded and we’re doing the vocals on the last five right now. It sounds awesome and I’m not just saying that because I’m usually high on Oxycontin when I’m listening to it.

Any titles you can give away yet?

I think some of the titles are floating around in cyberspace. We performed one of the songs live. It’s called “Critter.” It’s about having sex with a girl.
