UK's Metal Hammer magazine has uploaded professionally filmed video footage of Los Angeles glam-metal jokesters STEEL PANTHER performing their first-ever original Christmas track, "The Stocking Song", on Monday, December 8 at the 12 Bar Club in London, England. Check it out below.
Featuring STEEL PANTHER's signature hooks and naughty take on the holiday season, "The Stocking Song" is available for purchase on iTunes and on Amazon.
"We bring happiness to millions of people around the world. Why not during the holidays?" frontman Michael Starr tells Billboard.com. "We love to spread the love. The holiday season is the best time to pick up strippers at a strip club. The ones that are working on Christmas Eve usually have no family and are really lonely. So it's super easy to take them home and do some kissin' underneath the camel toe."
Adds bassist Lexxi Foxx, "I like the holidays — I like to call them the highlidays. I'm definitely a Christmas kind of guy. For me, it snows all year 'round, if you know what I'm talking about. There's always a bunch of snow, so I'm down with the holiday season. So when you listen to the song it's about all kinds of cool presents you can get your chicks, or a chick, all kinds of bits and stocking stuffers that only we would think of."
Having just wrapped a highly successful run as main support for JUDAS PRIEST in North America last month, STEEL PANTHER will now head out on a North American headlining run beginning this week in Charlotte, North Carolina at The Fillmore. Following the North American headlining dates, the band will be play a series of "Threesomes", two three-night residencies, one in their hometown of Los Angeles and the other in nearby Las Vegas, at the cities' respective House Of Blues venues in February.
STEEL PANTHER's third album, "All You Can Eat", sold around 13,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 24 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD arrived in stores on April 1 via Open E/KLS.
