Swedish sleaze outfit CRASHDÏET has re-signed with Frontiers Music Srl. The band's fifth album and follow-up to 2013's "The Savage Playground" will arrive before the end of the year.
This past January, CRASHDÏET released the official music video for the song "Reptile". The second CRASHDÏET track to feature the band's latest addition, singer Gabriel Keyes, was recorded at the group's own Dïet Studios in Stockholm, Sweden. It was produced by lead guitarist Martin Sweet and mixed by longtime collaborator Chris Laney.
The "Reptile" video was shot and directed by Jimmy Johansson and Martin Sweet.
In December 2017, CRASHDÏET released its first new song with Keyes, "We Are The Legion".
Keyes, a Stockholm-based singer, is CRASHDÏET's fourth vocalist. CRASHDÏET was previously fronted by Dave Lepard (2000-2006), H. Olliver Twisted (2007-2008) and Simon Cruz(2009-2015).
Cruz, who was previously a member of the Stockholm act JAILBAIT, joined CRASHDÏET in 2009 as the replacement for H. Olliver Twisted (now in RECKLESS LOVE).
"The Savage Playground" entered the official chart in Sweden at position No. 2. The CD was released in January 2013 via Frontiers.
