The Poodles Ink Blistering Deal
Founded in late 2005 things moved rapidly for The Poodles with the band entering the Swedish leg of the Eurovision Song Contest which led to the big breakthrough in their native country.
The debut album "Metal Will Stand Tall", climbed to the top of the Swedish charts. The first single "Night of Passion", went gold after only three weeks and platinum not long after. The band played over 100 shows in Sweden before heading out on a European tour with Hammerfall and Krokus that took them through 31 dates and 18 countries.
The sophomore album "Sweet Trade" was released in late 2007 with the second single "Streets of Fire" becoming the band's biggest seller to date by going double platinum.
Shortly after The Poodles headed out on yet another tour around Europe, this time with Swiss hard rockers Gotthard. This was followed by their own headline tour in the spring of 2008 with 17 sold-out shows throughout Europe. 2008 also saw The Poodles participate a second time in the Swedish Eurovision Song Contest plus getting the honor of performing the official Swedish theme song for the Olympic Games in Beijing, China.
On "Clash of the Elements" the band has worked with some of the giants in the music industry - including legendary producer/engineer Mike Fraser (Aerosmith, AC/DC, Led Zeppelin, Whitesnake).
Make no mistake! The Poodles are shooting for the stars with this one!
