Steel Panther To Mix New Album In June

Steel Panther have shared a new update on their upcoming album. The band are planning to mix the effort in June.

The group said the following:

“To all Fanthers, metal heads and clickbait enthusiasts around the globe:

We wanted to give you an update on all things happening in Steel Panther land.

The bass player search continues!!! We have been road testing several different people to date and so far we still haven’t found the Poontang to our Boomerang. We have spoken to a bunch of people – some you have seen and some you haven’t – and we won’t rest until we find the next Steel Panther low-end maestro to complete us like Tom Cruise in Jerry Maguire. Until then, our good friend Spyder is going to be filling in for us in Europe. We cannot wait to see you guys on the Res-Erections tour next month.

Also – if you have come to any of our shows over the past few weeks, the rumors are totally true!!! Not only is Stix STD free, but we are working hard on finishing the new album. We are planning to enter the mix phase in June. We will be sharing more exciting news on that in the near future.

We can’t wait to see you on the road and on our tour bus!!
Michael, Satchel and Stix”

The band commented:

“Even though they are known for so many things throughout the world, we love Pfizer for their work in erectile dysfunction and their amazing blue pills. That is why we named our 2022 tour in honor of them. Those blue pills have made our world a better place. ‘Res-Erections’ is going to be the party to not be missed and we are pulling out some surprises for these shows. If you lost your prescription or can’t see your drug dealer because of COVID, you won’t need a pill to rock this hard.”
