Look, right now nobody does 80s-style hard rock like Steel Panther. Nobody even tries. The extremely fine balance between authentic 80s musicianship, songcraft and XXX-rated green-room hi-jinx is a mighty thing to behold, whether they’re skillfully narrating a touching tale of romantic tenderness
with a lot of chicks at the same time (“17 Girls In A Row”), negotiating the ins and outs and ins again of the male/female relationship dynamic (“That’s What Girls Are For”) or promoting cultural diversity (“Asian Hooker”). The band’s new album, All You Can Eat, due for release here in Australia on March 28 and on April 1 in the USA, will no doubt dive deeper into the sticky world of human relationships. Here’s the press release:
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 March 28th in Australia via Open E Records through distribution by Kobalt Music Group. The album will be available for pre-order from steelpantherrocks.com on January 14.
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 here . Longtime Steel Panther producer Jay Ruston produced All You Can Eat.

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, a national web campaign for Warner Brothers Pictures hit film, Rock Of Ages and most recently in front of sold out crowds on a massive Australian Tour last December.
