"Cineminute", the new YouTube show from California party rockers STEEL PANTHER, premiered last month with the band's parody of the Bryan Singer classic "The Usual Suspects". The weekly episodic show has now returned with STEEL PANTHER's unique interpretation of 2005's Ang Lee Academy Award winner "Brokeback Mountain".
STEEL PANTHER kicked off its latest tour on November 29 at the House Of Blues in Chicago, Illinois. The concert was the band's first with bassist Spyder, who is filling in for STEEL PANTHER's regular four-stringer Lexxi Foxx.
STEEL PANTHER issued a statement on Friday (November 30) saying that Lexxi had voluntarily checked himself in to an undisclosed "sex rehab" after his "lifestyle of debauchery and proclivity towards random sexual encounters… finally caught up with" him.
"We love Lexxi Foxx… and his mother," explained drummer Stix Zadinia. "We support his decision to enter sex rehab. We can't wait for him to get back on the road with us after he learns how to have better sex."
STEEL PANTHER guitarist Satchel recently confirmed to Meltdown of the WRIF radio station that the band has commenced the recording process for its fifth album. The follow-up to 2017's "Lower The Bar" is once again being produced by Jay Ruston, who has previously worked with ANTHRAX, STONE SOUR and URIAH HEEP, among others.
"Lower The Bar", was released in March 2017 via Kobalt Music Recordings. The disc included eleven songs recorded at studios in North Hollywood and Sherman Oaks, California, with an additional two tracks on a Best Buy deluxe edition.
