CrashDiet Find Themselves Without A Vocalist Once Again

February 26, 2015

CrashDiet have once again found themselves without a frontman, a situation that has become all too familiar, as the Swedish sleaze legends announced Simon Cruz has left the band.

“There is a reason for our lack of news lately,” the remaining band members stated in a press release. “The reason for that is that Simon Cruz has left CrashDiet. Well, actually he decided to leave in the midst of our mini tour in Japan… with no notice whatsoever. The last few months have been confusing to say the least and we haven’t been sure of what to make of this… other than that our collaboration with Simon is over.”

Simon Cruz first joined CrashDiet in 2009, replacing H. Olliver Twisted who in turn had taken over vocal duties after the suicide of original frontman Dave Lepard. Together with Cruz the band released two studio albums, the Sleaze Roxx chart topping ‘Generation Wild’ and the polarizing 2013 follow-up ‘The Savage Playground’. Both albums charted in Sweden, with ‘Generation Wild’ reaching #3 while spending four weeks on the charts and ‘The Savage Playground’ hitting #2 during it’s three week run.

As with previous line-up changes and setbacks, the CrashDiet core of Martin Sweet (guitar), Peter London (bass) and Eric Young (drums) plan to soldier on. “The recording of the new album will proceed as planned,” the band reassured fans, “and you can expect hear more from us soon!”
