Crashdiet Unleash “Circus” Video
August 16, 2013
Crashdiet have released a music video for the song “Circus”, the latest single from their recent album ‘The Savage Playground’.
‘The Savage Playground’, the Swedish sleaze band’s second with vocalist Simon Cruz and fourth album in total, was released worldwide via Frontiers Records on January 25th and debuted at #2 on the Swedish album charts. The new album sees Crashdiet going in a heavier and more live direction musicwise. “The Savage Playground is our playground, its the beginning and the end, its the place where we eat and breed,” said guitarist Martin Sweet. “We thought the time was right for us to do an edgier and not so polished sounding album, kinda like what we sound like live. It’s more organic and rough sounding. And of course we’re always evolving as musicians and like to try new ways of expressing ourselves, and that can most definitely be heard this album.”
A leading force in the Swedish “sleaze rock” scene of the 2000s, Crashdiet harkens back to the glam metal movement of the 1980s, with a more pronounced punk element. Crashdiet has earned an international following of diehard fans through extensive touring, with stints supporting the likes of Motley Crue, and Ozzy Osbourne and the top placement in Sleaze Roxx’s Top 10 of 2010 with their last album ‘Generation Wild’.
Crashdiet overcame tragedy early in their career when original lead singer Dave Lepard committed suicide. Determined to carry on Lepard’s legacy, Crashdiet has endured and has become an example of determination to their fans. Crashdiet is Martin Sweet (guitars), Peter London (bass), Eric Young (drums) and Simon Cruz (vocals).
