Dustin Hardman‘s press release indicates (with slight edits):
“Crashdïet is back with their 6th album “Automaton” out April 29th via Crusader / Golden Robot Records!
Just like a gigantic robotic machine with pre-determined instructions, failure was never an option… No matter what obstacles may have come their way in the past, Crashdïet have always marched forward, delivering their own style of Sleaze Metalthey have become so well known for. Automaton contains 11 powerful sing-along anthems with massive drums, guitars, bass, and powering vocals (including a surprise special guest and a haunting voice from the past)….
With the motto “go big or stay home” Crashdïet formed in Stockholm back in the year 2000 and brought in the new millennium with full-throttle speed and excess.
Crashdïet released their critically acclaimed debut album Rest In Sleaze in 2005, giving them a spring of success in their home country of Sweden and abroad.
Shortly after, their frontman Dave Lepard was found dead at his home, the result of a tragic suicide in January 2006.
With a career littered with abuse, tragic deaths and lineup changes, it nearly ended the band more than once, but the band have become known for picking up the pieces and returning to the scene of the crime… every time.
The surviving band members and new blood have carried the glam-metal sleaze-rock torch ever since, touring the world and releasing many acclaimed studio albums.”
