Drummer Stix Zadinia (real name Darren Leader) and singer Michael Starr (real name Ralph Saenz; ex-L.A. GUNS) of Los Angeles glam-metal jokesters STEEL PANTHER were interviewed at this year's edition of the Graspop Metal Meeting, which was held June 27-29 in Dessel, Belgium. You can now watch the chat below.
STEEL PANTHER's third album, "All You Can Eat", sold around 13,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 24 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD arrived in stores on April 1 via Open E/KLS.
STEEL PANTHER's sophomore album, "Balls Out", opened with nearly 12,000 units back in November 2011 to enter the chart at No. 40.
Regarding the new CD title, singer Michael Starr said: "We feel like STEEL PANTHER is like a buffet. You know what I mean?! There's a little bit of everything for everybody. And you can have as much of us as you want."
The not-safe-for-work version of the official "Party Like Tomorrow Is The End Of The World" video includes celebrity cameos by "Jackass" star Steve-O, porn icon Ron Jeremy, "Breaking Bad" actor RJ Mitte and MMA fighter Chuck Liddell.
STEEL PANTHER will support JUDAS PRIEST on a North American tour this fall.
In the early to mid-1990s, STEEL PANTHER guitarist Satchel (a.k.a. Russ Parrish) was a member of PRIEST singer Rob Halford's band FIGHT.
