Steel Panther To Infect The World On ‘Spreading The Disease’ Tour
March 11, 2013
The Sunset Strip’s hottest export, Steel Panther, are infecting the world this spring on their recently announced and just named Spreading The Disease (S.T.D.) Tour.
The 20 date trek kicks off on April 13th in Orlando, Florida at WJRR’s Earthday Birthday. “What better way to kick off the S.T.D. tour than with a concert to celebrate the Earth’s birthday,” states bassist Lexxi Foxx. The latest tour also marks the first time the band will be traveling via tour bus, appropriately named the Mobile Clinic, in the US.
The Spreading The Disease (S.T.D.) Tour will be making headline stops in various markets across the country including Atlanta, Philadelphia and New York to name a few. Recently, the feverish outbreak for Steel Panther in Boston caused the show to have to be moved to the House of Blues from the Paradise where it was originally scheduled. The band will also be hitting the spring festivals with stops at Welcome To Rockville, Carolina Rebellion, Rock On The Range and even this year’s Ozzfest held in Japan. Steel Panther recently won Live Act Of The Year in the 2012 Loudwire Music Awards beating out the likes of Iron Maiden, Metallica and Tool amongst others.
Steel Panther — Michael Starr, Satchel, Lexxi Foxx and Stix Zadinia — 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, spawned the hit “If You Really Really Love Me”, and found itself on the SleazeRoxx best of 2011 lists.
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 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 and Green Day to name a few. Steel Panther has also been seen on Dancing With The Stars, Bad Girl’s Club and most recently in a national web campaign for Warner Brothers Pictures hit film, Rock Of Ages.
