The finnish hard-rock phenomenon Santa Cruz was formed in the year 2007, inspired by such greats as
Skid Row and Guns ´n´ Roses. After a few line-up changes and two demos the boys Taz (20, drums), Archie (20, lead vocals & lead guitars),Middy (20, bass) and Johnny (21,lead guitars) made a self-produced EP "Anthems For The Young ´n´ Restless"(2011) and a music video for the title track. With the EP they achieved international media attention, incl. Classic Rock magazine & national television of Finland, played well over a 100 shows, and scored a world-wide record deal with Spinefarm Records.
In 2012 The Cruz Boys began working on their highly anticipated debut-album, to be titled as
"Screaming For Adrenaline". After intensive studio sessions at Hollola and Helsinki Finland, the ass-kicking, 11 track album is ready to be shipped to the masses in 26.4.2013! The sound of Santa Cruz is now getting it´s wings, as they blend their influence of the 80´s and early 90´s Hard Rock sound with elements of modern Rock and Metal and put it in their own special blender. What you get is pure adrenaline and attitude in the form of honest Rock ´n´ Roll, not to mention the virtuoso level of musicianship, especially in the flashy guitar work of Archie & Johnny. This band will definitely stir the masses with their ground-breaking debut album. As the chant in the debut single "Relentless Renegades" quotes Julius Caesar "We Came, We Saw, We Conquered!", these hard-rock majesties certainly will.


Snaki: *Band Score 9.0/10* "These guys are the entire ‘package’! They are young guys, good musicians and have amazing scene presence! Now, add the fact that they released an amazing Album to that, and the result is that
these guys will be a “Big Name” and not just in Finland, but Worldwide! I see the girls cheering and the rockers going crazy for them in their lives! Pure rock & roll!!
