Steel Panther has been on the road in support of their highest chart debut of their career, All You Can Eat. The album was released on Open E Records via Kobalt Label Services and stormed the top of the charts landing at #24 on the Billboard Top 200. The band also garnered their thirdconsecutive #1 album on the Top Current Comedy Charts. The album is currently available at all physical and digital retailers or can be ordered via SteelPanther.TV. All You Can Eat was produced by Jay Ruston and Steel Panther.

According to a press release, Steel Panther was, for a long time, rock’s best-kept secret: a cult legend of the LA scene. But in recent years due to the success of their albums (all of which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Comedy Album Charts), and live shows, the band has enjoyed huge acclaim from fans and peers alike. Steel Panther has been joined on stage by a who’s who of musical icons such as Steven Tyler of Aerosmith, Paul Stanley of KISS, Kelly Clarkson, Pink, Billy Ray Cyrus, 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. The band played to the largest crowd of their career this past June when they closed the Download Festival in Donnington, UK alongside Alter Bridge and Aerosmith.

About Jack (866 Articles)
I am a recent graduate from the University of Essex in Colchester where by the luck of Odin I met the editor, Dom. I first got into metal when I was 13 and now I am 22 and own an uncountable amount of band T-shirts. I also regularly attend gigs (local and in neighbouring areas) as well as festivals. My musical taste is varied; I like nu metal (my first love), thrash, black, death, doom, folk, sludge (my favourite genre), symphonic and many more of the multiple genres that metal has to offer, I even like some metalcore (I know it's a dirty word within some metal circles but some of it is outstanding). One of my most memorable metal moments was meeting Grand Magus at the Bloodstock signing tent and having the whole tent to myself, spending a few minutes talking to them.
