Steel Panther has announced live fill-in bassist Spyder as their new, permanent bassist. Spyder originally filled in for now-ex Steel Panther bassist Lexxi Foxx in 2018, and then again upon his departure in 2021. Steel Panther has now welcomed Spyder as their new bassist, adding "Spyder is the chocolate to Steel Panther's peanut butter."
"We wanted it to be you. We wanted it to be you so badly," they said in a quote not at all referencing famous lines from movies. "So, it's not gonna be easy. It's gonna be really hard. We're gonna have to work at this every day, but we want to do that because we want you. We want all of you, forever, you and us, every day. To us, you are perfect. You had us at hello. You complete us. We're gonna need a bigger boat."
