Steel Panther Announces Permanent Bassist

Steel Panther 2022

A year after they announced open bass auditions, Steel Panther has named their full-time low ender. Spyder is the glam rock group’s new full-time member and has been crowned the R.O.L.E. – Ruler of Low End. Spyder first played with the band in 2018 when he filled in for Lexxi Foxx.

“An exhaustive search brought many submissions, and fans were treated to a variety of bassists on different tours,” Steel Panther writes. “The band had even considered a few well-known bassists to fill the void. Throughout the five-week European tour in the summer of 2022, it became quite evident to all four guys that this lineup was unstoppable. A few more months of touring together perfected the new lineup, and now anyone that has seen the band recently knows that Spyder is the perfect addition for Steel Panther. In other words, Spyder is the chocolate to Steel Panther’s peanut butter.”

In addition to the lineup announcement, the band has unveiled a new eight-city tour in November and December called the Claus & Paws Holiday Party. The outing will take them across the U.S. with two final shows in Vancouver, British Columbia.
