Steel Panther took to their official Instagram account to announce their new bassist Spyder. The band also invited fans to come and celebrate with them on their U.S. tour ‘Claus & Paws Holiday Party.’

Spyder and Steel Panther’s band members have known each other for a long time, as he performed his first live show with a band in 2018. When the band searched for a bassist in 2021, Spyder was one of the contenders. After a five-week European tour this past summer, the band members quickly realized that Spyder was the perfect fit, and fans also embraced him as a part of Steel Panther.

In addition to a new bassist announcement, the band shared the news regarding their U.S. tour ‘Claus & Paws Holiday Party.’ The celebration tour will begin in late November after they wrap the Canadian leg of the ‘Res-Erections’ tour.

The band posted on their Instagram account to celebrate their new bassist Spyder and share a few words about their latest member. They described Spyder’s addition to the band as a no-brainer and expressed their happiness.

They said they wanted Spyder to be a part of Steel Panther because he completed them. The band members noted they knew they had to work hard for it to work, but they were ready for the challenge. Steel Panther also shared the dates to inform fans of the layout of the tour.
