Crashdïet drummer Eric Young stepping down indefinitely from live duties and to be replaced by Lacu
Big news in the Crashdïet camp as long-time drummer Eric Young is stepping down from his live duties in the band for an undermined time period. Young will be replaced by ex-Hanoi Rocks and current Popeda drummer Lacu for the upcoming tours booked for 2022. This news comes just as Crashdïet are about to release their sixth studio album Automaton via Crusader Records / Golden Robot Records on April 29, 2022.
The following messages were posted on Crashdïet‘s Facebook page earlier today:
“We have a message from Eric:
Dear people in Crashdiet-land,
I have decided to step aside from my duties as live-drummer in Crashdiet. For how long, only time can tell.
My reasons for stepping down are personal, and I need to focus on my own well being for a while.
Our good friend Lacu (ex Hanoi Rocks), will be taking over and performing on the upcoming tours booked for this year.
We of course support Eric‘s decision and wish him all the best. He’s our brother and we love him.
Lacu will be in the music video for our next single “Powerline” which comes out on album release date April 29th!
The million dollar-question is: who played drums in “Together whatever”?
Peter, Martin & Gabriel
“We’re excited to bring in some Finnish rythms into the band!
Lacu (Ex Hanoi Rocks) will be our live-drummer on the upcoming live dates.
He played for Hanoi Rocks for 6 years and is also drumming for Finnish legends Popeda.
The european tour kicks off May 4th in Sweden!
