Steel Panther, Crobot, Tragedy

  • Steel Panther

    Steel Panther

    Hair Metal

    For the uninitiated,Steel Pantherwas formed in 2000. Hailing from Los Angeles, the epicenter for rock n’ roll in all its debauchery and glamour, Steel Panther has established themselves as the world’s premier party band, melding hard rock virtuosity with parody and criminally good looks. Steel Panther is a global phenomenon with four full-length albums, touring across the world, platinum-level You Tube status and high-profile television appearances such as Jimmy Kimmel Live, LarryKing Now, and FOX NFL Sunday.Rolling Stone avowed, “There’s a reason Steel Panther have transcended their origins as a cover band playing the Sunset Strip,” while Metal Sucks declared, Steel Panther’s concept is genius...their songwriting is...preposterously snappy –and relatable.”
  • Crobot

    Crobot

    Rock

    Riff-monsters Crobot conjures up the kind of rock 'n' roll that has grooves so powerful they throw you around the room and hooks high enough to shake the heavens. They take the sweet-sounding nectar of the gods and pour it down your throat until you're wailing along like a banshee.With tens of millions of streams, countless shows and acclaimfrom the likes of Metal Hammer, Classic Rock, Kerrang, BBC Radio, SiriusXMOctane, Loudwire, Guitar World and more, Brandon Yeagley [vocals], Chris Bishop[guitar], Tim Peugh [bass], and Dan Ryan [drums] realize their vision likenever before on their fifth full-length,Feel This[Released June3via Mascot Records].Feel Thisis the follow-up to 2019s Top 10 Heatseekers albumMotherbrain–whose cumulative streams havesurpassed 30million.20million of which were for the goliath single "LowLife" -a US Top 10 at active rock radio on the Billboard Mainstreamwith a 29-week run."This is the record we've been wanting to do ever since westarted," exclaims Brandon. "We've always thought of ourselves as alive act," he continues. "When Jay Ruston described his process ofrecording, we were beyond excited about getting in and getting our hands dirty.It involved performing live as a unit and finishing all instruments on a songbefore moving on to the next. We recorded 16 songs in 21 days, which is a featin itself."Feel Thisis a tale of perseverance. "Through constantstruggles, we learn more what it's like to be human. Our shortcomingsandstrengths alike make us a unique species," Brandon reflects. "FeelThis very well may point to our biggest strength of all, our ability to feelemotion (for better or worse)."Human nature is threaded throughout the album, from volatile relationships ["Dizzy"] to imperfections and learning from mistakes on "Holy Ghost." Its warbling harmony wraps around the wah-drenched guitar straight out of Seattle; Brandon's grunge-y wail rings out on the hook, "I am not the holy ghost. I won't ever save your soul." There's "believing in somethingso much" on "Set You Free," which spirals towards a seismic crescendo and emotionally charged guitar lead from Bishop.Around the psyche-digging lyrics, they are never far away fromthunderous rock 'n' roll. "Electrified" kickstarts the album as arip-roaring livewire anthem. "It's your classic rock 'n' roll tune aboutFrankenstein boots and being invincible!" Brandon says. There's an epicanti-hero tale on "Without Wings," and then there's "Dance withthe Dead." Forgetting your troubles over an irresistible groove, the songstruts with high-register harmonies and the infectious chant of "Let's godance with the dead. They know how to kill it!""Golden" is a soaring homage to a god-gone-too soon."When it came to the lyrics, we collectively wanted it to be a tribute toChris Cornell," says Brandon. "We're so influenced by everything heand Soundgarden have done. We ran with the song in honor of his legacy."They made waves withLegend of the Spaceborne Killer[2012],Something Supernatural[2014], andWelcome To Fat City[2016]. However,Motherbrain[2019] represented a high watermark. They've crisscrossed the US and the world in road-warrior style, playing with the likes of Anthrax, Black Label Society, Chevelle, Clutch, Volbeat and more. They've lit up festival bills and the annual Shiprocked! Cruise. "We tour the pockets off of our pants and sleep in our van for half of the year. To some, that may seem like misery, but to us -it's Heaven baby!" the frontman says. Something they highlight on the new song, "Livin' on the Streets".2019 ended with a US tour supporting Steel Panther, and thenCovid19 punched the world in the face. As the Global Pandemic descended uponus, Chris and Dan hunkered down in Austin to jam and cut demos, sending ideasto Brandon back in Pennsylvania. 2021 saw the boys enter Orb Studios in Austinwith producer Ruston [Stone Sour, Anthrax, Steel Panther]. Since the world hasbegun to open up, the band have not stood still.Rat ChildEPwas released last summer and featured a mighty cast ofFrank Bello[Anthrax],Howard Jones[Light The Torch/ex-Killswitch Engage] andStix Zadinia[Steel Panther]. They've also headed out on headline tours, playedass-kicking performances at festivals such as Rocklahoma, Aftershock, theJericho Cruise and supported Halestorm.
     
    You'll feel rock 'n' roll comes to life in Crobot's hands."We never want to make the same album twice," Brandon leaves off."There is something for every Crobot fan out there as well asnewcomers.At the same time, we're having fun. We want to be taken seriously, but not tooseriously—because this is monkey hour after all." "That's the fucking lineright there," agrees Bishop. "We want you to walk away smiling. If Ican make you smile, I've done my job"

    Tragedy

    Hard Rock

    “Tragedy rocks sweet balls and can do no wrong! They are great fun!”–Bruce Dickinson, Iron MaidenTragedy takes disco, soft-rock and pop classics, and completely reimagines them as glorious, red-hot heavy metal. They're sure to get your head bangin’, your booty shakin’ –and put a smile on your face and your fist in the air.Tragedy’s concept, while subversive and humorous, goes beyond what many have done in satirical music –they celebrate the soul of the original song, even while turning the soundscape on its head. The amps are cranked to eleven, but the emotion is not lost. You discover new meaning in songs that have been a part of your life for as long as you can remember. You laugh and cry. Dance and mosh. And feel newly connected to the disco-metal that was inside you all along.Tragedy does not lazily rely on the concept or “the joke”. The band plunges deep –blazing musicianship, tantalizing riffs and stunning vocals. All except for Lance the towelboy. He’s just an idiot.Born out of the impenetrable divide of Disco and Metal, these fearsome brothers fearlessly obliterated the truce line that had been set in the great Disco/Metal Peace accord of 1977 when they seamlessly blended the two genres with their debut album, We Rock Sweet Balls and Can Do No Wrong –a collection of Bee Gees songs redone in a heavy metal treatment reminiscent of Judas Priest, Motley Crue and Guns N Roses. Since then, they have crisscrossed the globe with their spectacular live shows, storming across the USA, Canada, UK, Ireland, Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, France and Switzerland. On subsequent full length albums, Humbled By Our Greatness, Death To False Disco Metal, The Solo Albums, The Joy of Sex, Tragedy Goes to the Movies and #1 Christmas Holiday Party Mix, Tragedy spread their glittered wings to take on non-Bee Gees classics from the disco era, soft rock anthems andparty jams. In 2015, Tragedy broke the internet with a viral video featuring their take on You’re the One That I Want from the Grease soundtrack. In 2017, Tragedy’s video for Stayin’ Alive broke the internet once again. In 2019, two albums hit the NACC Heavy Top 10 charts.In 2021, Tragedy signed a worldwide record deal with Napalm Records. The first album with Napalm is Disco Balls to the Wall –release date July 2021. It has hit the top 10 in Hard Rock/Metal charts in Europe and the US. And a new album is to be released March 3, 2023.
     
    Tragedy consistently tours North America, UK & continental Europe, and has headlined festival stages of events such as SXSW (USA), CMJ (USA), Musikfest (USA), Bloodstock (UK), Rebellion (UK), Summer Breeze (Germany), Foudrock (France), Motocultor (France), ParkPop (Belgium), Glastonbudget (UK), Legends of Rock (UK), Belladrum (UK) and Hammerfest/Hard Rock Hell (UK)
