Swedish sleaze rockers CRASHDÏET completed a video for their new single ‘Cocaine Cowboys’ at the weekend and we are pleased to present it to you ahead of the Xmas break. The clip can be seen in all its g(l)ory below - 
‘Cocaine Cowboys’ is the lead-off single from the band’s new studio album ‘The Savage Playground’, which is released on 28th January.
CRASHDÏET recently confirmed a co-headlining UK tour in late April on which they will be accompanied by UK rock band Jettblack and three further support acts. These are Fallen Mafia, Hell In The Club and Sleekstain.
The full list of dates is as follows:
23.04.12    NEWCASTLE – O2 Academy
24.04.12    SHEFFIELD – O2 Academy
25.04.12    BIRMINGHAM – O2 Academy
26.04.12    NOTTINGHAM – Rock City
27.04.12    LONDON – O2 Islington Academy
A leading force in the Swedish ‘sleaze rock’ scene of the 2000’s — a revival of the glam metal of the 1980s, but with a more pronounced punk element — CRASHDÏET for the first time manage to release their brand of down and dirty Rock and Roll simultaneously all over the world.
In April 2010 the band’s third album ‘Generation Wild’ pretty much summed up the extraordinary but yet tragic history of a band, determined to never give up their dream. CRASHDÏET has become known as a band with a huge following of diehard fans, and the massive interest for them never seems to fade.
There was extensive touring to promote ‘Generation Wild’ and the absolute highlight saw the band conquer Hollywood and New York City with sold out shows at Whisky A Go Go and Webster Hall. The band also supported their heroes Mötley Crüe and Ozzy Osbourne. “Supporting Mötley Crüe in Helsinki and headlining Whisky A Go Go have been the highlights of the ‘Generation Wild’ tour”, says guitarist Martin Sweet. 
With the new studio album ‘The Savage Playground’, recorded during summer/autumn 2012 in their native Sweden, the band has their minds set to break through on a worldwide basis with a tour that will see the band going back to the US as well as going to Japan for the first time. “We will put a lot of effort into the US for our new tour. We will start in Scandinavia in February, Then we head to the US and Canada, coming back end of April to do UK and then Europe and Japan will follow with festivals in the summer and then South America to kick off in the autumn” continues Sweet.
The new album sees CRASHDÏET going in a heavier and more live direction musically. “’The Savage Playground’ is our playground, it’s the beginning and the end, it’s the place where we eat and breathe”, says Sweet. “We thought the time was right for us to do an edgier and not so polished sounding album, kinda like how we sound live. It's more organic and rough sounding. And of course we're always evolving as musicians and like to try new ways to express ourselves, and that can most definitely be heard on this album”.
Preceded by the release of the cracking first single ‘Cocaine Cowboys’ in December, ‘The Savage Playground’ includes the following songs: Change The World; Cocaine Cowboys; Anarchy; California; Lickin’ Dog; Circus; Sin City; Got A Reason; Drinkin’ Without You; Snakes In Paradise; Damaged Kid; Excited; Garden Of Babylon.
Martin Sweet - guitar
Peter London - bass
Eric Young - drums
Simon Cruz - vocals
