California rock and party legends STEEL PANTHER have survived a career of living a decadent lifestyle surrounded by loud music, fast cars and beautiful women. That lifestyle of debauchery and proclivity towards random sexual encounters has finally caught up with the band's bassist. Lexxi Foxx has voluntarily checked himself in to an undisclosed "sex rehab." He will have to miss the current U.S. tour that recently kicked off in Chicago. The band's friend of over 30 years and backstage doorman Spyder will be filling in on bass for the upcoming tour dates.
"We love Lexxi Foxx… and his mother," explains 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."
Fans will still be able to see Lexxi Foxx alongside Michael Starr, Satchel and Stix Zadinia in the new season of Steel Panther TV, which debuted recently. Cineminute, the band's new YouTube show, premiered last week with their parody of the Bryan Singer classic "The Usual Suspects". The weekly episodic show returns on December 4 with their unique interpretation of 2005's Ang Lee Academy Award winner "Brokeback Mountain".
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.
