piece of gum, Finnish hard rock band Santa Cruz go against the tide, undeterred.
Formed in 2007 by frontman and guitarist Archie Cruz, Santa Cruz nod at tradition whilst
revealing glimmers of future. With roots in Helsinki’s burgeoning rock scene, the four-piece
combine virtuosic guitars and full-throttled riffs with blistering fresh production, a meticulous
ear for melody and timeless choruses. Their efforts to date have received plaudits from
Classic Rock, Kerrang!, Metal Hammer alongside Rolling Stone; who featured Santa
Cruz in their 10 New Artists You Need To Know.
With three albums in their discography and a revamped line-up, Santa Cruz are back and
better than ever, with plans to release new music from their upcoming studio album in 2019
(M-Theory Audio). Heading to Vegas’s Hideout Studios to work with renowned multi-
platinum and award winning Canadian producer & songwriter Kane Churko (Ozzy
Osbourne, Five Finger Death Punch, Papa Roach), this incarnation of Santa Cruz sees
their sound scale new heights.
