Ex-Steel Panther Bassist Lexxi Foxx Launches New Project Hollywood Gods N’ Monsters

Travis “Lexxi Foxx” Haley (ex-Steel Panther) has launched a new band called Hollywood Gods N’ Monsters. The “smashup” project finds the bassist joined by singer Dave “Diggity Dave” Aragon (“Pimp My Ride”, “Battleground Earth”), rapper HYPE, singer Kris “7even” Aragon, drummer Daniel Adam Parker, and guitarist Brian Jennings.

Aragon said the following:

“We are not a cover band. This is original stuff we’re creating, and it’s a living, breathing history of music. We equate it to what DJs are doing, but in the form of a full band smashing together the songs every generation has grown up with. What other band is mixing the ’70s band Chic with Queen, Aerosmith, Sugarhill Gang, Blondie and DMX? And that’s just one song by us. Also, kids wanna see rock stars again… larger-than-life entities on stage that mirror the atmosphere. Think of us as a bigass American jukebox… where all the records in it have melted together… except when you press B5…you get that plus B6, B7, B8 and the track you thought you knew is now a stitched-up Frankenstein jam that makes you shake your ass harder than ever.”

Haley continued:

“This generation, the one before it, and the one that’s following are ripe for a band like us. It’s about losing yourself in the music, about dancing, about feeling alive. That’s why the DJ scene has conquered music — because people wanna go to a show and identify and recognize the songs they’re ingesting. They just wanna be enveloped in the music they know, their friends know, and hell… even their parents know.”

He also addressed his departure from Steel Panther:

“I am very proud of what I’ve accomplished with my other band. Nothing can take away the memories and the camaraderie that existed for all those years, but I just felt it was time for something new. When I heard this music, I knew this was the group of friends and the music I wanted to collaborate on.”

Aragon added:

“It’s not like he ever thought he wasn’t challenged by the copious amount of talent that resided within Steel Panther; it’s just that he wanted to explore different kinds of music and was intrigued by some of the music I was sending him.”

“Once we figured it out, we then set out to find the missing pieces that would propel the sonic and sound needed to round out this parade of hooligans. We knew we were in need of two types of talent. A rapper [Hype] extraordinaire that could dismantle any genre of music and reconstruct it into his own image, and a female singer [7even] that could terrorize through the throat but tingle the testicles. We managed to find the perfect purveyors of punched out panic.”

Hype also commented:

“I knew this was a great opportunity to represent legends past and present from all genres of music, while also transforming music for a new generation. It was a no-brainer to team up with these rockstars and ‘Define My Hype’ to the world.”
