BLACK SABBATH will make a rare television appearance when they perform a new song in the season finale of "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation", on Wednesday, May 15. Said executive producer Don McGill, "When we first heard that BLACK SABBATH was interested in premiering a song on 'CSI' from their first studio album in 35 years, we were all really excited. So many of us are longtime fans,". "And seeing as the album is titled '13' and this is the finale of 'CSI''s Season 13, it seemed like the perfect match. We couldn't be more thrilled."
STEEL PANTHER have revealed that they will perform at the wedding of NICKELBACK frontman Chad Kroeger and pop singer Avril Lavigne.
STEEL PANTHER drummer Stix Zadinia explains how the unlikely friendship with Kroeger came to be, saying, "We play a lot of shows, and we have weekly residencies in L.A. and Hollywood, and 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 contributed guest vocals to and collaborated on the song "It Won't Suck Itself" from STEEL PANTHER's 2011 album, "Balls Out".
