Steel Panther to Perform Avril Lavigne, Chad Kroeger Wedding + More News
Noisecreep isn’t expecting to be invited, but according to Blabbermouth, Sunset Strip survivors Steel Panther have been hired to perform at Nickelback‘s Chad Kroeger and Avril Lavigne’s upcoming wedding.
“We play a lot of shows, and we have weekly residencies in L.A. and Hollywood,” Steel Panther drummer Stix Zadinia told Audio Ink Radio. “Chad was in L.A. for a while, and he would come to our shows and get up onstage and jam. We got to know him, and at one of the shows, we were like, ‘Dude, we should write together!'” Kroeger did the classic, “Yeah, bro!” But for a while, nothing came of the friendly exchange. “We kept saying it enough times that finally, we were like, ‘Let’s do it.'”

It will be exciting to see fans wearing items from my merch line supporting MFA. For this first design, I teamed up with long time friend James Bullock aka Human Furnace from the band Ringworm for the artwork. I think he did an amazing job!”

The song is one of two on the release, available via Magic Bullet, which will be pressed on 500 clear vinyl and 500 randomly colored vinyl. A digital release is said to be planned, as well. Both “Bled Dry” and the other track on the 7″ will not appear on While a Nation Sleeps, the band’s new album due out in June.
