Swedish glam rockers CRASHDÏET are currently in the studio outside Stockholm, Sweden recording the follow-up to 2010’s “Generation Wild” album for a tentative January 2013 release. The band will, however, take a short break to return for its second U.S. tour this year.
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.
Upcoming CRASHDÏET shows:
Aug. 15 – Whisky A Go Go – Hollywood, CA
Aug. 16 – Vamp’d – Las Vegas, NV
Aug. 18 – Kiss Lounge – Toluca, MX
Aug. 19 – Rock And Road Bar – Mexico City, MX
Aug. 22 – House Of Rock – Baltimore, MD
Aug. 24 – Webster Hall Studio – New York, NY
A “sneak peek” at the demo version of the new CRASHDÏET song “Anarchy” can be streamed in the YouTube clip below.
CRASHDÏET performed “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. The CD, which was made available in Sweden in April 2010 through Gain/Sony Music, was helmed by RamPac, the production and songwriting team formed by Johan Ramström and Patrik Magnusson, in Gröndal, Sweden and was mixed by Tobias Lindell.
CRASHDÏET in 2009 announced the addition of Simon “Simme” 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.
