STEEL PANTHER release NSFW video for single ‘Friends With Benefits’

album release ‘On The Prowl’ set for February 2023


 With less than two weeks until the release of their sixth studio album “On The Prowl” and to celebrate Valentine’s Day, STEEL PANTHER are back with their latest music video from the album. The NSFW video is for the track “Friends With Benefits” and is a song that lyrically explores a mutually beneficial relationship between two consenting adults. The music video – directed by longtime collaborator J.T. Arbogast – is Steel Panther’s take on the show Shark Tank. The band appears in Panther Den as they try and pitch a series of creative ideas to four high-powered cougars. Products such as the Glorious Hole, The Coolcumber and Slikknutz all sound like meaningful creations until Michael Starr arrives selling himself and his companionship package. The band performs in front of the panel of female business leaders and by the time the song is over – there are more than just their wallets out.

Watch “Friends With Benefits” below (age restricted in some areas).

YouTube loves to restrict Steel Panther’s videos. With our new video coming today, we expect this next one to be no different.  So, we thought we’d have a little fun with it this time. We ask you: how many views will we get before we get age-gated? Make your guess HERE.

Watch the previously released official video for the new single  “1987” below. 

Also watch the previously released “Never Too Late (To Get Some Pussy Tonight)” below (age restricted in some areas).

‘On The Prowl‘ will be released digitally and on CD, Cassette, and 2 different color variant records. Purple/Blue Marble is wide and Pink/Purple Marble will be a limited edition signed. All versions will be the entire 13 song album.

Earlier this year, STEEL PANTHER singer Michael Starr spoke to the “Everblack” podcast about his relationship with the band’s original bassist Lexxi Foxx who left the band in July 2021. “I just talked to him today,” Michael said. “He’s doing good, man. He did exactly what he wanted to do. He started a family. He’s living in Chicago. Him and his wife just had a baby. So Lexxi Foxx is not gay. I thought he was gay this whole time. It’s so weird.”

Starr continued: “The party never stops. Just because he’s not on tour doesn’t mean he’s fucking having a good time. And we miss him. I fucking miss him. And we still stay in touch and talk. We talk just about every other day — just stay in touch with one another. I mean, we were together for 27 years, 26 years, and we know each other’s moms and dads and all of our cousins. We know everything about one another. So it’s been really, really sad not having him in the band, but I understand why he’s doing what he’s doing. And he was one of the smart guys — he saved up all his money. Not me — I’m still living at my mom’s. Let’s go.”

In September, STEEL PANTHER announced the addition of Spyder as the band’s new bassist.
