‘Screaming For Adrenaline’: debut album from Alexi Laiho-approved Finnish rockers set for release through Spinefarm Records on July 1st.
FORMED IN Helsinki in 2007, Finnish four-piece Santa Cruz draw their inspiration from such greats as Skid Row & Guns ´n Roses, blending influences from ’80s & early ’90s hard rock with elements of modern metal.
The result is honest rock ´n´ roll topped off with energy & attitude, not to mention an accomplished level of musicianship, especially in the guitar work of Archie & Johnny.

Following on from two EPs, 2009’s ‘Another Rush Of Adrenaline’ & 2011’s ‘Anthems For The Young ‘n’ Restless’, Santa Cruz now have their debut album scheduled for release; featuring 11 tracks, including the aforementioned ‘Aiming High’ and single ‘Relentless Renegades’, ‘Screaming…’ is an exciting statement from a band who can count some influential fellow musicians amongst their ever-growing fan-base.
“Never mind that they are young, Santa Cruz definitely stick out from all these retro hair metal bands running around nowadays. Not only do they have the attitude and the looks, but most importantly they sure as hell know how to play, and the songs and the awesome guitar playing makes me wanna bang my head into two pieces when I see them live. And, after all, that’s what it’s all about. End of fucking story!!!” – Alexi Laiho / Children Of Bodom
