Steel Panther
Steel Panther
For the uninitiated, Steel Panther was formed in 2000 and is Michael Starr (lead singer), Satchel (guitarist), Lexxi Foxx (bass) and Stix Zadinia (drums). 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. With three full-length albums, touring across the world, platinum-level You Tube status and high-profile television appearances such asJimmy Kimmel Live,Larry King Now, andFOX NFL Sunday, the band is touring in support of their upcomingeffort, Lower The Bar(Kobalt Music Group).Oftheirlast studio albumAll You Can Eat, 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.”

Shooting guns, setting fires and shaking shacks with half-stacks make for the type of nights that separate the men from the boys and THE WILD! from the other 99% of what some people are calling rock’n’roll these days. Anybody who’s ever been told to turn it down, clean it up or to go home lives inside of what the God Damn Wild Boys are all about. Driven by long, hard nights, the love of loud music, rural roots, and a no-bullshit mentality, THE WILD! play the soundtrack for freedom seeking renegades & real deal rock’n’rollers alike.

Meet THE WILD!

On vocals/lead guitar, DYLAN VILLAIN embodies all of the reckless abandon and good-natured devilish charm that could only be born in a very small backwoods community. Counterbalancing VILLAIN’s snakebite rasp is bassist/vocalist BOOZUS. Beer drinkin’, beard havin’ & fly-fishin’ are his favourite past times.

Kickin’ ass & keeping time is drummer REESE LIGHTNING. A beast with beats & everyone’s favourite asshole. You’ll love him! Rounding out THE WILD!'s lineup is “The Kid” on rhythm guitar and backing vocals. Young blood in the crew & a goddamn firecracker. What The Kid lacks in age, he makes up in heart.

“I feel like for every thousand bands that are out there right now you’ll get maybe ten that believe the things they’re singing about, which is the most important thing to me in any genre,” says VILLAIN. “I don’t give a shit what kind of music you play. If you care about it then really give yourself to it. Our fans aren’t stupid and I think they want something that they can feel is real.”

In 2014, the band’s music video for their first single “Road House” went viral on Youtube which led to notable airplay at rock radio in Canada. The song made a big dent at radio for a completely independant band, landing in the TOP 30 rock chart. Later that summer, THE WILD! hit the road playing alongside of bands like Korn, Rise Against and Monster Truck.

All of this momentum lead to the band signing a deal with Entertainment One Canada. The label was so excited about The Wild! that contracts were signed before they’d even had a chance to see the band live. The band’s reputation for being one the best up and coming live acts in Canada had preceded them.

So...What do they sound like?

Take the gritty authenticity of the Delta Blues and speed it up with reckless punk rock attitude. Now roll that into a southern rock cigarette. You feelin’ that yet? Throw that shit into 5th and tighten your grip around the neck of your electric guitar. That’s rock’n’roll. That’s THE WILD!

That’s exactly what THE WILD! gets up to on their debut release, ‘GxDxWxB’’, which stands for ‘God Damn Wild Boys’. Produced by Mike Fraser (AC/DC, Aerosmith, Jimmy Page, Van Halen) at a pair of legendary studios (Warehouse/Armoury) in Vancouver, ‘GxDxWxB’ summons all the unbridled howls, raw melodicism, streetwise attitude & aggression from all the influences and vices that make THE WILD! who they are.

“Even underneath the loud guitars you can hear the love for the blues in our songs,” declares vocalist/lead guitarist DYLAN VILLAIN.

‘GxDxWxB’ came out swinging, with the first single “Party ‘Til You’re Dead” released in support of a massive Canadian Tour supporting Buckcherry.

In April of 2015, the band released their second single “Slow Burn”. Canada’s Rock Programmers proudly put the song into heavy rotation sending it all the way up to No.5 on the active rock chart. “Slow Burn” and THE WILD! remained in the Top 10 for ten weeks resulting in a nomination for “Best New Rock Band” at The 2015 Canadian Radio Music Awards.

In the Fall of 2015, The Wild! were on the road supporting their EP ‘GxDxWxB’ with bands such as Godsmack and Buckcherry. At this point the band had just signed a deal with Entertainment One US making them the first Canadian band to sign globally with Entertainment One via the label’s New York office.

“We’ve generated a lot of interest in rock’n’roll here in Canada,” says DYLAN VILLAIN. “And now we’re looking forward to sharing our sound with the rest of the world. We’re doing exactly what we wanted to do with this band. There’s a lot of bands out there that try to do this or that, but we don’t try anything. We do things.”

In February of 2017, The Wild! released their first full-length, Wild At Heart, via Entertainment One. Teaming up once again with longtime friend and producer, Mike Fraser (this time co-producing with Dylan Villain), the album was met by rave reviews from press all over the world (Revolver, Alternative Press and Classic Rock Magazine included). Upon release, it knocked Metallica out of the No. 2 spot on the iTunes Rock Charts, and the first single "Ready To Roll" shot up to No. 5 on the Active Rock Charts in Canada. This success led the band to two back-to-back North American tours, first supporting Airbourne and then Sebastian Bach/Buckcherry. In November of 2017, the band made their way overseas for their first UK Tour, again supporting Airbourne. In 2018, they will continue to tour internationally, bringing their high-energy rock’n’roll show to fans all over the world. Catch them in a city near you!
