Steel Panther Share Footage Of “The Burden Of Being Wonderful” From Recent “Fans Come First” Livestream Concert

Steel Panther have shared a new live video for their song “The Burden Of Being Wonderful.” You can check that out below. The footage is taken from the band’s recent “Fans Come First” livestream show, which was held at The Viper Room in West Hollywood, CA on May 22.

Steel Panther Announce “Fans Come First” Livestream Concert

Steel Panther have announced another livestream concert, which they are calling “Fans Come First.” The virtual event will take place at The Viper Room in West Hollywood, CA on May 22 and tickets can be found HERE. Fans can also vote on the setlist and submit video clips that may be used during the show HERE. A portion of the proceeds will go towards Dogs Without Borders. Steel Panther commented:

“It has been over six months since we have been able to do a livestream from Los Angeles. With summer just around the corner, we figured now is the perfect time to come together with the fans and help some dogs while at it. The fact the fans will be picking the set list for this one is something that we couldn’t be more excited for. It is going to an adventure for us as much as it will be for them.”

Steel Panther Recording New Album

During a recent appearance on the “Lipps Service With Scott Lipps” podcast, Steel Panther confirmed that they are recording a new album. The effort is tentatively set to be released later this year.

Stix Zadinia said the following:

“We’re recording a new record right now. And we’re doing this one differently than we’ve ever done a record. Usually, for every record, we get together, we go into pre-production, we work it out. Satchel [guitar] will come in with the songs, then we’ll get together physically, work ’em out, go record ’em, and we’re all at the studio. And because of the way things are now, it’s forced us to sort of look at things through a different lens, and we’ve decided to try it this way… I’m tracking drums here [at home], I’m sending it to the guys, then there’s guitars laid over, and then vocals that are gonna be recorded. So it’s very separate. And then we’ll have somebody mix it. And that’ll be the record.”

Satchel added:

“It’s basically very similar to the way we’ve been doing records, except just a different order. I think every time you do a record, there’s so much that has to be put into writing a song, making a song good and listening to a song from start to finish and having it be exciting and not bore you — all the stuff that goes into that is before you ever start to record. And then recording these days, we’re all very lucky because you can get really great sounds in your home studio. The only thing that we’re probably gonna go, and need to go, into a really good studio for is the drums, ’cause that involves the room and other things. But you don’t necessarily have to do the drums first. If you’re playing to a click, and if you work out the parts that you want for a record, you can replace it with real drums later on in the process. And that’s just all we’re doing. We’re doing the guitars and the bass and the vocals first, and then we’ll probably end up going in somewhere and doing the drums afterwards and then mixing at the very end. Mixing is always the last part of the process anyways. Just a little bit different order this time, just because like a lot of bands, most of our money comes from touring, so we don’t have the money to go throw thousands of dollars to a recording studio right now.”

Stix Zadinia On Steel Panther And Corey Taylor’s Unreleased Collaborative Track “Steel Panther Fucked My Girlfriend”: “It Sounds Like The Fucking Eagles”

During a recent appearance on “The Crash Report” podcast, Stix Zadinia talked a bit about Steel Panther and Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor’s unreleased collaborative track “Steel Panther Fucked My Girlfriend.” The drummer says that he hopes the song will be released at some point and that “it sounds like the fucking Eagles.”

Zadinia said the following about the track, which was previously covered by Wheeler Walker Jr.:

“We never played it. Somehow [Wheeler Walker Jr.] got a copy of it. We never released it. And there’s a version out in one of our hard drives with Corey Taylor singing it.”

He continued after the interviewer said that the group should release it:

“We should. We fucking should. You know what? I need to talk to Satchel about that. Corey Taylor sings ‘Steel Panther Fucked My Girlfriend’. It’s amazing. It sounds like the fucking Eagles — the original version.”

He also added:

“Wheeler Walker did a version of it. The end product, the end result of it, I heard and I was, like, it’s cool and it was nice of him to wanna do, but when you hear our version of it, especially with Corey on it, you’ll be, like, ‘This sounds like the fucking Eagles.'”
