Track Of The Day: Crashdïet
Swedish sleaze is back and bursting – thanks to Crashdïet. They provide the latest Track Of The Day. Check out all the Tracks Of The Day.
The band started in 2000, taking inspiration from Skid Row, Kiss, Guns N’ Roses W.A.S.P. and, er… G.G. Allin. Signed in 2004 to Universal, the band’s debut album – Rest In Sleaze – was released the following year. However, with many predicting big things, the band were hit by tragedy when frontman Dave Lepard was found dead in his flat, having committed suicide in January 2006.
Taking time to come to terms with this, Crashdïet finally returned at the end of that year to work on second album The Unattractive Revolution. This came out in October 2007, introducing new vocalist H. Olliver Twisted. He fitted in alongside guitarist Martin Sweet, bassist Peter London and drummer Eric Young. However, the new singer was fired in the summer of 2008, due to a lack of commitment. Twisted is now a member of rivals Reckless Love.
Now, with Simon Cruz out front, Crashdiet are back with their third album. Generation Wild, firmly underlining their reputation as the top sleaze combo from Sweden – and this is country with a pedigree in the genre! This is released on April 26 by Frontiers Records.
