Gain/Sony Music Recording Artists CrashDiet have solidified themselves
as Sweden's premiere glam metal outfit by being nominated for a
Swedish Grammy for their fourth album, The Savage Playground, which
was released earlier in 2013.

Produced and recorded by Otto Wellton at Kingside Studios, The Savage
Playground slammed into the Swedish national charts, peaking at #2 on
the strength of the album's first single, "Cocaine Cowboys." "It's a
fantastic feeling when you reach that high on the chart," says
CrashDiet guitarist, Martin Sweet. "It only confirms that our fanbase
is growing every year and we're tremendously thankful for that!"

2013 was the busiest year of the band's career to date, with extreme
highs and lows in spades. "2013 is a year we will never forget,"
reflects Sweet. "It's probably the year that made the biggest impact
on us as persons. We had some great highs and horrible lows - our
manager's passing - which will definitely change the way we look at
things forever. The passing of Michael Sunden, is, of course,
heartbreaking. He will remembered as the guy who took us to America
for the first time. A true visionary."

With the Grammy nomination, the band ends the year on a huge note.
"This is our second Grammy nomination and, we're surprised, as always,
and, of course, very honoured to be a part of this old tradition. Win
or lose, we're happy either way. We do what we do," wraps up Sweet.

The 45th Annual Swedish Grammy Awards ("Grammis") will take place on
19 February 2014 in Stockholm, Sweden.
