Steel Panther have announced that their new album will be released February 24 under the title of "Lower the Bar."

Additionally, the boys have also presented "She's Tight" as the record's lead single. We're looking at a cover of 1982 Cheap Trick tune, make sure to check out the video in the embedded player below.

The official press release reads: "'She's Tight' is Steel Panther's 'sexified' version of the Cheap Trick song and promises the skin that was left out of the 1982 hit.

"Cameos in the video include Cheap Trick's Robin Zander, Bobbie Brown, Paris Michael Jackson (the late singer's daughter) and Tony Palermo (Papa Roach)."

Like the album cover, lead off single is so-so.

Why lead off with a cover - just not necessary for this band.

 

I would bet my house that will be my least favourite track on the album

I don't hate it, but I don't listen to Steel Panther to listen to cover songs. Yeah, it's okay but entirely misses the point of Steel Panther and what appeals to their fans.

Funny vid. Good cover of a good song. I would guess this would be an attempt at more radio play. Certainly won't hear Glory Hole on the airwaves.

 

Not even a hint of a doubt that's what they seek.

not good but hopefully it's weakest

It just has to be, anxious to hear the first original song from this

 

That's When You Came In was already on their unplugged release and will feature on the new album again. Do you think it'll stay acoustic or will they give this a full power ballad makeover?

That is great news, whatever they do with it. I absolutely love that tune... have it my head all the time.

I don't mind the cover at all. Jury's out on the album though...

 

What the fluck? You mean you've heard the full thing already? With a release date of Feb 24th 2017??

 

Dan, are you Jesus? But seriously, have you heard the full album?

My bad. What I meant was "The jury is out on what the rest of the album will be like". No, I've not heard anything else.

 

Haha, cool. I was all like, is this dude in their inner circle or something?

 

Personally, I believe the rest of the album will be awesome. As long as they keep doing what they do (which is not covers) I honestly don't think these guys can fail. Cannot wait for it.

You do know they started out as a covers band though, right? It's actually what's put them on the map. Granted, there haven't been any covers on their albums (and I wouldn't want that either) so this is a first and the covers they used to play (before they had an entire show's worth of original material) weren't Cheap Trick songs but rather classic 80s ''hair metal'' songs

 

Still think Balls Out is their strongest album so far. Basically every song could have been a single as far as I'm concerned. Also seeing them live again this Friday so looking forward to that

Yeah, I know they were a cover band, but I dunno mate... not sure that's what put them on the map. I don't think they got a major label deal based on the quality of their cover songs. ;)

 

For the record, I like their version of 'I want it that way' and some of the other covers they've done... but only as a novelty. I'm only in it for their original stuff, as I suspect 100% of their fans are. :)

    • AMH is a relatively new band, and they released this single a few months ago; I want to know if any of you have seen these guys because I loved their debut earlier this year and want to get their name out more.  They're pretty much straight party rock that I think some of you will dig!  What do you think?
    • Honestly I like the vibe and groove this one gives off, sort of reminds me of their acoustic performances
    • I was on the train before, but for the record- 1. I prefer Steve Lee's voice over Harry Hess, purely as vocalists. Much respect for both, but I prefer Hess as the overall artist. 2. Coverdale over Tyler. Probably the only super easy pick without thought required. 3. Michaels over Vie. Another easy one, actually. Much as I love prime Enuff Z'Nuff and his unique voice, I wouldn't say I'm individually a mad fan of his vocals. Never had an issue with Michaels. 4. Robert Mason over Lane on a purely vocal level. Every single other aspect, Lane all the way. 5. Lewis over Pearcy. Really hard one. Possibly surprised myself here going with Lewis. Obviously neither are vocal powerhouses, but both iconic. It was thinking of Lewis on something like 'Over the edge' that made me lean that way. 6. Tate over La Torre. I'll be honest and say I've not heard the other dude much, but Tate did what he did very well. 7. Winger over Jovi. As close to a dead heat as there was. Ended up going with Winger thinking of something like 'Spell I'm Under,' but wicked close contest. 8. Malloy over Russell. Love both these guys, but on a purely vocal level had to go with Malloy. 9. Poley over Laine. Poley probably my favourite 80's hard rock vocalist and bit of a confession time... not the maddest Laine fan ever. Love him on 'Stick it in your ear' and even 'Cockroach,' but not as big a fan of him in more recent years. Guess the same could be said for Poley, but in their prime, Poley for me.  10. Joe Elliot over Heart. Another easy one. Love Elliot's voice but never been a fan of Heart's much at all. 11. Cathey over Logan. Two great vocalists, but I melt over Cathey's voice and with a bigger sample size he'd probably have been my favourite vocalist of the era. 12. Davis over Bulen (or is Keeling?). You stumped with with this one, mate. Have we ever heard Bulen sing on anything? I don't think I have. I just read he was actually the lead vocalist for Baton Rouge before they recorded anything and Keeling took over. So I assume you might have meant Keeling? In which case my answer's still the same.  Cool thread anyway. I enjoyed it. 
    • I haven't bought any but I'm heavily considering Badd Boyz, I'm not the biggest Shortino fan but the samples I've heard from that one rock!  Based on samples, honestly Rough Cutt is probably the one I won't consider any time soon.  I don't like the sort of metallic effect on Shortino's voice in some songs if you get what I mean.  For the same reason I've avoided the Platinum Overdose albums where I think it's more noticeable.  I haven't seen it mentioned anywhere else though so I'm not sure if I'm the only that gets bothered by it or maybe I'm just going insane
    • Geez mate, there were some really hard choices there, especially numbers 1, 4, 7 and 9. Nice job.  
    • You've got a lot of catching up to do.  
    • Another promotional track, this time from UKJ.    
    • Anyone play Pokémon Go?   If so I’d like to expand my in game friends for sending gifts and trades and such.    Shoot me a pm and I’ll get you my user information.    Thanks
