MACHINE HEAD guitarist Phil Demmel joined Los Angeles glam-metal jokesters STEEL PANTHER on stage on March 23 at Regency Ballroom in San Francisco, California to perform two songs: “Turn Out The Lights” and “Asian Hooker”. Fan-filmed video footage of his appearance can be seen below.
STEEL PANTHER is infecting the world this spring on its recently announced “Spreading The Disease (S.T.D.) Tour”. The 20-date trek kicks off on April 13 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 U.S.
The “Spreading The Disease (S.T.D.) Tour” will make 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 in Japan.
STEEL PANTHER has been in the studio lately working with Jay Ruston (ANTHRAX, STONE SOUR, MEATLOAF) on the band’s third full-length album. The follow-up to 2011’s “Balls Out” is expected this summer.
