SEATTLE, WA: Gay German Heavy Metal act PINK STEEL will play two dates at Seattles fourth annual SketchFest October 11 and 12, with the express intention of making Seattle safe again for Heavy Metal.

"Seattle has forgotten how to bang its head!" says PINK STEEL lead singer Hanson Jobb. "That is where Pink Steel comes in."

"Yah," added guitarist Udo Von DY. "We have come to turn the Emerald City pink. Prepare for the paddle, Seattle!"

Best known in the US for show-stopping appearances at New York Citys CBGBs, Upright Citizens Brigade Theater, and the Gay and Lesbian Music & Comedy Festival, PINK STEEL makes its Western U.S. debut in Seattle.

The Bad Boys from Bremen will address the issues of their dogged longevity and their curious obscurity with the unveiling of their two-man cabaret show, Queens of The Dammed.

PINK STEEL: QUEENS OF THE DAMMED is their hard-rocking tale of gay metal, demonic possession, and other things that make life naughty and fun. Expect loads of gay-positive arena-rock cabaret, crammed with PINK STEEL favorites like "Im Comin Out (All Over You)", "Frodonator", "Sausage Party," and "We Fight For Cock!"

PINK STEEL, a.k.a. "the Pink and Black Bareback Attack", have spent the last twenty years in relative obscurity, spreading the gospel of Gay Heavy Metal throughout the eastern U.S. and northern Europe. Born in Bremen, Germany, founding (and currently only) members Hanson Jobb and Udo Von DY have pledged to "conquer the world, one bath house at a time." With seminal albums as Mouth Full of Magic, Creaming for Vengeance and Squeal at The Devil, PINK STEEL have duly carved their names into mens room walls and their niche in hard rock history.
