"Generation Wild", the third album from CRASHDIET, entered the official chart in the band's home country at position No. 3. The CD was made available in Sweden on April 14 through Gain/Sony Music. It was helmed by RamPac, the production and songwriting team formed by Johan Ramström and Patrik Magnusson, in Gröndal, Sweden and was mixed by Tobias Lindell.
"Generation Wild" was issued in the rest of Europe through Frontiers Records.
The "Generation Wild" clip was filmed in Stockholm with director Marcus CF Tinnerholm (MUSTASCH, BABYLON BOMBS, THIS ENDING).
CRASHDIET performed "Generation Wild" at this year's edition of the Rest In Sleaze festival, which took place on February 6 at Fryshuset in Stockholm, Sweden. CRASHDIET also played its debut album, "Rest in Sleaze", in its entirety at the event, which was launched in 2007 as a tribute to former CRASHDIET singer David Hellman (a.k.a. Dave Lepard).
Hellman was found dead on January 20, 2006 at his apartment in the Swedish city of Uppsala, north of Stockholm. It was reported in several places that he hanged himself, although this was never officially confirmed.
"Rest in Sleaze" entered the Swedish national album chart at position No. 12 back in 2005.

CRASHDIET last year announced the addition of Simon "Simme" Cruz from the Stockholm act JAILBAIT as the group's new lead singer.
The band parted ways with its last vocalist, the Finland-based H. Olliver Twisted, in July 2008.
CRASHDIET's sophomore album, "The Unattractive Revolution", entered the Swedish chart at position No. 11 back in October 2007. The CD was mixed in the United States by Kevin Churko.
"The Unattractive Revolution" featured 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 material.
