Steel Panther has been in the studio lately working with Jay Ruston (Anthrax, Stone Sour, Meatloaf) on their third full-length album. The album is the follow up to the band's critically acclaimed 2011 release, Balls Out. That album debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top Comedy Chart when it was released and spawned the hit "If You Really Really Love Me."
Steel Panther was, for a long time, rock's best-kept secret: a cult legend on the LA scene. But in recent years due to the success of their albums (both debuted at #1 on the Billboard Comedy Album Charts) and live shows, the band has enjoyed huge acclaim from fans and peers alike. Steel Panther has been joined on stage by rock and roll icons such as Steven Tyler of Aerosmith, Paul Stanley of KISS, Corey Taylor of Slipknot, Tom Morello of Rage Against The Machine/Audioslave, Chester Bennington of Linkin Park, Green Day and most recently Walt Jr (of Breaking Bad fame) to name a few. Steel Panther has also been seen on US TV on Dancing With The Stars, Bad Girl's Club and also in a national web campaign for Warner Brothers Pictures hit film, Rock Of Ages.
