Steel Panther Announces “The Road to the Road” Bassist Competition

Steel Panther

With the departure of Lexxi Foxx, Steel Panther announced that they would be holding an open audition. The tongue-in-cheek glam metal band received 1,669 submissions and they’ve narrowed it down to 32 finalists. Now they’re asking for the public’s help in deciding who should get the position with a March Madness-style bracket.

Two early entries by Rikki Dazzle (who performed with the band in October) and Rikki Thrash have already made it into the finals.

“Two Finalists are in, Eight More To Be Selected. That’s where you come in!” the band writes. “Welcome to The Road to the Road Tournament! From over 1669 submissions, we’ve narrowed the field to the top 32 and we want YOU to help us determine the top 10! Every day between now and December 24th, we’re featuring two bassists as we work our way through the bracket below. All you have to do is check out the videos and vote for your favorites! Let the games BEGIN!!”

You can view the bracket and vote on the Steel Panther website. Until the winner is officially chosen, the band will be performing a handful of dates to close out the year with Dazzle and Thrash trading off duties.
