Argentinean rock journalist Lucas H. Gordon, who currently resides in Hollywood, California, conducted an interview with vocalist Simon “Simme” Cruz of Swedish glam rockers CRASHDÏET when the band played at the Whisky A Go Go in Hollywood, California on August 15. You can now watch the chat below. Also available is footage of the Whisky concert.
CRASHDÏET recently spent time in the studio outside Stockholm, Sweden recording the follow-up to 2010’s “Generation Wild” album for a tentative January 2013 release.
The new CD can be preordered at this location.
CRASHDÏET has been touring quite a bit in the last two and a half years, opening up for such bands as MÖTLEY CRÜE, OZZY OSBOURNE, MICHAEL MONROE and WEDNESDAY 13, and traveling everywhere from Australia to USA to Brazil.
CRASHDÏET performed a new song “Anarchy” for the first time on June 7 when they played at Kaisaniemi Park in Helsinki, Finland as the support act for MÖTLEY CRÜE.
The band’s third CD, “Generation Wild”, was recently released on vinyl. This gatefold LP features the new bonus track “Hollywood Teaze” as well as updated artwork.
“Generation Wild” entered the official chart in Sweden at position No. 3.
CRASHDÏET in 2009 announced the addition of Cruz from the Stockholm act JAILBAIT as the group’s new lead singer.
The band parted ways with its previous vocalist, the Finland-based H. Olliver Twisted, in July 2008.
