Crazy Lixx + support - Hard Rock Cafe, Oslo

Crazy Lixx was founded in late 2002 by Dirt Child Danny and Vic Zino, in an attempt to bring back to the music scene a band that was true to the style 80's Hard Rock. So Joey Cirera was asked to be the drummer and the core of the band was formed.

They began playing in establishments like any other band, only in 2007 released their debut album Loud Minority for a local label, Swedmetal Records. After a few shows with the band, Vic Zino left the band in 2009 because of disagreements, shortly after he was invited by the band Hardcore Superstar to take the place of Thomas Silver on guitar, where he remains to this today.

With the line-up reformed, in 2009 Crazy Lixx signed a contract, which lasts until today, with the Italian label Frontiers Records. In 2010, the band released its second studio album, New Religion.

In September 2014, Crazy Lixx announced their fourth studio album would be self-titled and released in Europe on November 7 and in the United States on November 11 on Frontiers Records.

In August 2015, it was announced through the official website of Crazy Lixx that guitarist Edd Liam and songwriting guitarist Andy Zäta had left the band. The news article said that Edd had personal reasons to do so, while Andy was instead involved with the British band Inglorious. Lead singer Danny Rexon added that "the band's future existence [was] at stake".

Later that month, Crazy Lixx began to look for new guitarists and potential lyricists, allowing anyone to apply for these positions.

In February 2016, the band released a music video for the song "All Looks, No Hooks", featuring new guitarists Chrisse Olsson and Jens Lundgren. The band's first live album was released on 8 May 2016, and consisted of songs recorded in July 2015, which was the last show with guitarist Andreas Zäta Eriksson.

In 2016 it was disclosed that Crazy Lixx would appear at the three-day Rockingham 2016 melodic/hard rock festival, held in Nottingham, United Kingdom. They appeared on Saturday 22 October, fourth in a seven-act line-up headlined by Steelheart.
