It’s business as usual for Steel Panther, as they march on their raunchy and sexy ways. While the band is focusing heavily on their live touring efforts, the band is still highlighting music from their newest studio album, Lower The Bar. Most recently, Steel Panther has released a new video for “Wrong Side Of The Tracks (Out In Beverly Hills),” which was released on the album just last year.
A lovely animated rendition of the band shows a fun way to take music videos to a whole new level. For Steel Panther, this level seems to match their sex appeal…cheap, easy, and with no strings attached.
“Our style is still the same formula, I guess, but we’ve changed it up a bit,” said singer Michael Starr. “I could say that we used to sing about pussy and partying; now we’re singing about partying and pussy, but the reality is we did switch up a few things. It’s a really solid, fun, intelligent party record. We’re just maturing as a band after being on the road for years together and living together. It shows.”
“It’s hard to put into words without sounding like a typical review, but it feels different to me. It feels like we’re doing some melody lines we normally wouldn’t do on a couple of sings, different kinds of moods and not necessary just ‘Dr. Feelgood’. There’s some different stuff in there, but everything’s open for interpretation. Hopefully we connect with it.”
“I tend to feel — and this is my own personal belief — ‘lowering the bar’ is really the best thing you could do in order to have a happy life,” said guitarist, Satchel. “It doesn’t matter what you’re talking about. Let’s say, you just want a sandwich. If you’re expectations of having a really great sandwich, if you go in with that expectation [you’ll be let down]. It’s just like having sex with a Tinder date. But, let’s say you’re on a Tinder date, and you, lucky guy, are able to convince her [the interviewer] by using your cousin’s picture to go on a Tinder date with this hot young chick. You get to the date, you’re at Taco Bell and you see that this dude doesn’t look anything like his cousin. You’re disappointed, aren’t you? You should go in expecting to date a drummer and if you get a guitar player or bass player, you’re happy.”
