Watch out! The unruly dog pack out of Sweden is on the move once again. The release of the band’s forthcoming album “Performocracy” is due on April 15th 2011 and the first single off the album, “Cuts like a knife”, is headed your way in March. Heavy Metal has never been more exciting and the new album promises to be a milestone in rock n’ roll history!

The Poodles was formed in the fall of 2005 and six months later they participated in the Swedish leg of the Eurovision Song Contest, which led to the band’s big breakthrough in their native country. The debut album, “Metal Will Stand Tall”, was released shortly thereafter in Sweden, Japan, and Russia. It climbed to the top of the Swedish charts and the first single, “Night of Passion”, went gold after only three weeks and achieved platinum status in addition to being the most downloaded song for three weeks straight.

For The Poodles’ third album, legendary producer-mixer Mike Fraser (Aerosmith, AC/DC, Led Zeppelin, Whitesnake) was hired to take on mixing duties. Mats Valentin, a highly gifted Swedish producer and songwriter produced what was to become “Clash of the Elements”.
