Steel Panther & Sleaze Metal global impact in 2012
Steel Panther rocks 20,000 fans @ Download Festival in the UK
The band released "If You Really Really Love Me" in November 2011
It’s 2012 and it looks like 1985 is knocking on the door again. Really? Yes, Really! Kurt Cobain is still dead as dirt and like it or not – the 80s are NOT!
Glam rock, sleaze rock, cock rock or shock pop – it’s still fun and people still like it. Do all these bands give a fuck what the industry or Nirvana fans think about them? Answer is likely not.
We give props to the Grandpa’s of Glam STEEL PANTHER! Self admitted old men – all closer to 50 then 40 – they are out and kicking a lot of balls. With "Balls Out" ironically the name of their latest epic recording on Universal Records. Pick it up or steal it if you haven’t already.
The STEEL PANTHER guys are officially legends at this point, and they are out schooling some of the young bucks on how it’s done!
Steel Panther have announced that they’ll be returning to the UK in March 2012 for a headlining tour.
MARCH 27th @ ACADEMY BIRMINGHAM
MARCH 28th @ ACADEMY GLASGOW
MARCH 30th @ ACADEMY MANCHESTER
MARCH 31st @ ACADEMY BRIXTON
Steel Panther have also confirmed that their highly anticipated second single, JUST LIKE TIGER WOODS, will be released via Universal Records. Classic Rock stated that the track is "relentlessly catchy with filthy lyrics". The track is taken from the band’s acclaimed second album, BALLS OUT, which was released in October 2011.
The band just finished a UK arena tour as special guests to Def Leppard and Motley Crüe!
Speaking of young – dumb and full of cum! Check out some of the world’s hottest sleaze rock bands making an impact in their respective countries.
Metal Sludge gives a salute to all of these guys.
