STEEL PANTHER vocalist Michael Starr says that fans will "love" the band's upcoming album.
The disc, which is tentatively due before the end of the year, is once again being produced by Jay Ruston, who collaborated with the band on all of its previous recordings, including its latest LP, 2017's "Lower The Bar".
On Saturday (May 4), Starr — whose real name is Ralph Saenz — took to his Facebook page to write: "This morning I woke up with a clear vision and mind set. Our 5th Steel Panther studio record is almost done and I am seeing the future with this release. You are gonna love this new group of songs. We have worked extremely hard and it’s paid off. Be prepared to have your nuts fucking rocked off. Ladies get a towel cause your tits are gonna explode and it’s gonna get messy. The future is bright!"
STEEL PANTHER drummer Stix Zadinia recently said that he was more excited about the band's upcoming album than he has ever been about any of the group's previous releases. "The riffs are fucking gnarly, dude — gnarly," he said.
STEEL PANTHER specializes in imitating and exaggerating the less flattering aspects of 1980s hair metal, with unrepentantly crude, non-PC sexual content as a favorite lyrical theme.
The group's music has been described as "VAN HALEN meets MÖTLEY CRÜE meets RATT meets 'Wayne's World', complete with operatic shrieks, misogyny, shredding guitar solos and libidinal overdrive."
Eleven years ago, STEEL PANTHER changed its name from METAL SKOOL to its current moniker and shifted the focus of its act from ’80s metal covers to originals.
