Video footage of Crashdïet playing acoustically with new singer Gabriel Keyes
While Crashdïet fans look forward to the group’s first official concert with new lead vocalist Gabriel Keyes at Kägelbanan in Stockholm, Sweden on March 30, 2018, the sleaze rock group consisting of Keyes, guitarist Martin Sweet, bassist Peter London and drummer Eric Young played a “surprise” acoustic gig at Pub Anchor in Stockholm, Sweden on January 31, 2018.
Sleaze Roxx interviewed Keyes back in mid-December 2017 and asked him how it felt the first time that he played with the rest of the guys in the band,
Keyes replied: “It felt good. It felt so natural and everything. Everyone was so nice. It felt good from the first song.I think we first played “It’s A Miracle” and after that, everything just gelled. We just kept on [doing] rehearsals. It was just fun — the whole thing — and it felt so natural.”
In terms of whether he feels any pressure in having to follow up all the other singers that Crashdïet have had, Keyes advised: “I don’t know. I am just trying to be myself. I am not trying to be somebody else. I am just here to do what I love. I am trying to bring the best Crashdïet, and the best myself. I haven’t thought about it that way. I know that it’s a big role to take but you know, I’m just trying to be myself. I’m trying to create my own legacy.”
