Dubbed by those in the know as “rock’s best kept secret”, Steel Panther were for a long time a cult legend on the LA scene.

Well, the secret’s out and the band recently grabbed the highest chart debut of their career with their latest album, All You Can Eat, released on Open E Records via Kobalt Label Services.

The album stormed the top of the charts landing at number 12 on the UK Album Chart, which these days is no mean feat.

And, in recent years due to the success of their albums — all of which debuted at No1 on the Billboard Comedy Album Charts — and live shows, the band has enjoyed deserved acclaim from fans and peers alike.

Steel Panther has been joined on stage by a who’s who of musical icons such as Steven Tyler of Aerosmith, Paul Stanley of KISS, Kelly Clarkson, Pink, Billy Ray Cyrus, Corey Taylor of Slipknot, Tom Morello of Rage Against The Machine/Audioslave, Chester Bennington of Linkin Park and Green Day to name a few.

Steel Panther are on at o2 Academy on Monday, March 9. Ticket prices vary inclulding VIP meet ‘n’ greet packages.

Meanwhile, Architects swing into to town on Wednesday, March 11, at O2 ABC. The 4-piece band say they’ll be pulling out all stops for their anniversary tour, commenting: “We’ll be doing everything we can to make sure these shows are the biggest and best Architects shows in our 10 year history. We can’t wait.”

Following the release of the hugely acclaimed, Kerrang! Award winning recent album Lost Forever, Lost Together, this tour is their biggest yet.

Let’s hope they don’t overpromise and underdeliver.
