Steel Panther Announce London Date

Plus they name new album & release new single

The hair metal band will play a one-off headline date at the Electric Ballroom on 8 November in support of their new album, Balls Out.

Tickets for the show are on sale on Friday at 9am.

The new record is released on 17 October and it's preceded by new single, 'If You Really Really Love Me', which made its debut around the world yesterday.

In an interview about the album in May guitarist Satchel talked about following up their 2009 debut album. "It's funny because we haven't learned any lessons from our first record. We don't even think of it as our sophomore album, we think of it as our second debut release. Many bands will try to make a different-sounding record for their second release, but we couldn't really get any better than our first record. Our first record was awesome, so we decided to go in and make the same record for our second album, just better. We didn't really grow as writers. We didn't grow as musicians. In fact, I think I got a little bit worse . . . But because of that it's much better. It's kind of like a fine wine. If you let it sit there and let it get moldy, that's what they do with wine, right? Then you let the mold fester in the bottom of the bottle, that's what our music is like on this record. We're like a moldy cheese that's been left out in the sun all summer. You wouldn't think that it would taste good at the end of the summer, but surprisingly, it does. That's us in a nutshell."
