Satirically pretending to be a hair metal band that missed its big break in the '80s, singer Ralph Saenz ("Michael Starr"), drummer Darren Leader ("Stix Zadinia"), bassist Travis Haley ("Lexxi Foxxx"), and guitarist Russ Parrish ("Satchel") hit the club circuit on the Sunset Strip around the turn of the millennium under the name Metal Shop (later changed to Metal Skool, and then Steel Panther). With big spiky wigs, leather jackets, zebra-striped spandex, chops earned from playing in a Van Halen tribute band, and lots and lots of machismo, their comic take on sex, drugs, and rock & roll to the extreme caught on quickly, leading to sold-out shows and some unexpected brushes with mainstream success. As their popularity increased, the Hollywood crowd started frequenting their sets, often making appearances on-stage. This led to some opportunities: the band fittingly played the role of a metal band as "Danger Kitty" in a Discover Card commercial; they appeared on The Drew Carey Show as themselves; and their song "FF" was used as the theme for MTV's Fantasy Factory. In May of 2008 the band signed to Universal Republic. After releasing the singles "Death for All But Metal" and "Community Property," Steel Panther's full-length Feel the Steel was released in October of 2009.
From the backwoods of America to the streets of Los Angeles, the 4-piece rock band known as Hillbilly Herald is taking the US by storm. Packing in world-renown venues like the Viper Room, Roxy Theater, and the House of Blues, the band seems unstoppable.
It all began in 2008 when the charismatic, "rough-around-the-edges" lead singer, Jimmy Herald , got together with guitar player, Mark The Cat Hill. The two sought out to bring rock n roll back to life, inspired by bands like AC/DC, KISS, Aerosmith, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Guns N' Roses.
"Hillbilly Herald is BAD ASS."

They joined forces with ZZ Top bearded bass player, Adam Wolf, and powerhouse drummer, Kevin Kapler, who brought the aggressive rhythm section the band was looking for. Together they went into the studio to record their self-titled debut album under the expert ears of Brian Carlstrom, engineer for bands like Alice In Chains, The Offspring and White Zombie. The end result is a slamming hard rock record that could soundtrack an action-flick super-star cruising in a convertible, getting pumped up to save the world.
With unparalleled stage performances and an arena-style show that bleeds rock n roll, Hillbilly Herald is injecting life into the rock scene. So pump up your stereos and pop open a cold one. Rock is back. And its got a face...
