Nasty Idols Return With ‘Kalifornia’ On August 28th

August 5, 2012

One of Scandinavia’s premier glam/sleaze bands returns! Ever since their first savage and youthful rise back in the late 80’s, the Swedish rockers Nasty Idols have delivered their own brand of straight forward sleazy metal rock. Their new album ‘Kalifornia’, being released on August 28th through Perris Records, contains 11 original tracks featuring “Kalifornia”, “1969 (This Ain’t The Summer Of Love)”, “Nightstalkin'” and “Roadtrip”.

With black and bleached hair, scarves, mascara and a full-on teenage rock n’ roll rage, Nasty Idols were formed in 1987 by vocalist Andy Pierce and bassist Dick Qwarfort. They played their first gig at a local festival and inspiration for the band came from early Motley Crue, KISS, Sweet and Alice Cooper.

The videos for “Cool Way Of Living”, “Can’t Get Ya’ Off My Mind” and “Trashed N Dirty” all made their way to MTV’s Headbangers Ball as the band’s 1991 album ‘Cruel Intention’ was released in both Germany and Japan. When the Seattle Grunge era stormed the Earth by 1994, life were not easy for any good old rock n’roll band. By 2002 American label Perris Records re-released all the Nasty Idols albums including a ‘Best Of’ and the 1995 ‘Heroes For Sale’ album.

After a succesfull re-union gig at the Sweden Rock Festival 2006 the band followed up with ‘The Rejects On The Road’ Tour. Throughout 2006 they played in Sweden and in 2007 they were still playing gigs and toured in Italy and U.K. In 2009 they released a 12 track album called ‘Boys Town’ through Metal Heaven Records.
