CRASHDIET Parts Ways With Singer

Martin Sweet (guitar), Peter London (bass) and Eric Young (drums) of the Swedish glam-rock band CRASHDIET have released the following statement:

"We have decided, in a mutual decision, to go separate ways with Olli [Finland-based vocalist H. Olliver Twisted]. We need a singer who can commit 100%, which unfortunately Olli couldn't live up to. He, as many know about, has another band in Finland and we couldn't settle for sharing our time. We want to go further than any band has done before and we can't afford to spend time just waiting. We need to function as a full unit, all the time! It was, as mentioned above, a mutual decision, and this ain't the result of any kind of argument. We definitely will go on as friends, and we wish Olli all the best!

"Just to make things clear: CRASHDIET has no intention of giving up. The three of us are more hungry than ever and you ain´' seen the end of CRASHDIET yet!"

"Falling Rain", the latest video from CRASHDIET, can be viewed below. The track comes off the group's sophomore album, "The Unattractive Revolution", which entered the Swedish chart at position No. 11 back in October 2007. The CD was mixed in the States by Kevin Churko.

"The Unattractive Revolution" features a guest appearance on two tracks by MÖTLEY CRÜE guitarist Mick Mars, who flew into Stockholm, Sweden in June 2007 to help CRASHDIET write some of the new material.
