Steel Panther Members Discuss Music, Fashion and ‘Balls Out’
In a very entertaining interview with the Kramer guitar company, Steel Panther guitarist Satchel and bassist Lexxi Foxx revealed some thoughts about their music, fashion and touring.
When asked if they reached for a new style for their new record ‘Balls Out’, the very fashion savy Lexxi Foxx started talking about his clothing choices and said, “You think just the music is important, and it’s not just music. It’s about how bitchin’ we look, and we’re bringing heavy metal back, and if one member of the band happens to change a certain style, [that's okay]. I don’t have the same highlights I had in for this record ‘Balls Out.’” As for the musical aspect of their style, Satchel replied, “We tried to write the same way but not do the same thing.”
“We changed a lot of the words, like we don’t do the same songs we did, all the words are different than they were on the first record,” Foxx added.
The band also talked about their current tour, kind of. “I don’t know about all the states we’re gonna go to, but I know that … we’ve got a string of dates starting right in Hollywood, where we play on a regular basis, and we’re gonna go to Vegas, and on the way we got a gig lined up in Baker… ” Satchel said.
“We’re probably gonna cruise other places in the world, other countries and go to Europe and other countries like that,” he added.
