One of the biggest names in the glam metal/sleaze rock scene, CRASHDÏET, have today released their new album, ‘Automaton‘ (review here) , which is available now on digital platforms and CD via Crusader Records/Golden Robot Records. The limited-edition coloured vinyl is due for release on September 9.
To celebrate the release of ‘Automaton‘, CRASHDÏET have also released a video clip for the track ‘Powerline‘ featuring the one and only Michael Starr, vocalist of Steel Panther!
The first ever featured guest appearance on a CRASHDÏET album, this anthem tune gives you a soaring duet between vocalist Gabriel Keyes and the infamous Michael Starr. A powerful call to the wild.
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, tragic deaths, sudden line-up changes etc. CRASHDÏET have always marched forward, delivering their own style of Sleaze Metal they have become so well known for. Their sixth studio album contains 11 powerful sing-along anthems with massive drums, guitars, bass, powering vocals including a surprise special guest and a haunting voice from the past.
CRASHDÏET are set to hit the road for a run of shows to promote the new album, with new live drummer Lacu (ex-Hanoi Rocks).

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.
