Recently named by Rolling Stone as one of “10 New Artists You Need To Know,” Santa Cruz melds Sunset Strip influences of Motley Crue and Guns N’ Roses with elements of modern rock, punk and metal for a wild, unadulterated sound that seethes with sweat and swagger.
Santa Cruz got their start in 2007 and has been on a meteoric rise ever since. The band released two previous albums Screaming for Adrenaline (2013) and Santa Cruz (2015) with Spinefarm Records, which both landed in Finland’s Top 40 with the later taking the #3 spot on the charts. The band has spent the last several years winning over critics and fans across Europe and word is spreading like wildfire to the U.S. The band recently inked a deal with M-Theory Audio, who will release their 3rd record Bad Blood Rising.
