Santa Cruz Premiere New Song “Tell Me Why”

Santa Cruz have premiered a new song titled “Tell Me Why.” This track is from the band’s new album “Katharsis,” which will be released this fall. Archie Cruz commented:

“‘Tell Me Why’ was conceived during the hot summer of 2018 in Finland and perfected at the Hideout studios in Vegas later that year. It has a big, sexy riff and a larger-than-life chorus that’s sure to rock y’all’s socks off. Dig it!”

Santa Cruz Premiere New Song “Changing Of Seasons”

Santa Cruz have premiered a new song titled “Changing Of Seasons.” This track is from the band’s upcoming album, which will be released in the fall.

Archie Cruz commented:

“‘Changing Of Seasons’ is about going through hell in life, and fighting your way back to the surface no matter what. This is for all the fighters and survivors out there. Musically, I found a perfect partner in crime in Kane Churko, with whom we managed to create a totally new sonic landscape for Santa Cruz which marks a huge step forward for the band.”

Churko added:

“‘Changing Of Seasons’ is a powerful rock song about transforming and taking back control of your life. I think it really sums up a lot about Archie’s journey leading up to the new album and how he was able to reinvent himself in the face of adversity. This song is a testament to his focus and strength as an artist, and I think audiences and listeners will pick up on that immediately.”

Santa Cruz Fall Apart In The Middle Of Their U.S. Tour With Fozzy

Santa Cruz have apparently fallen apart while on tour supporting Fozzy. The band confirmed that the rest of their touring plans were cancelled and then frontman Arttu “Archie Cruz” Kuosmanen took to Instagram claiming that his bandmates, guitarist Joonas “Johnny Cruz” Parkkonen, bassist Mitja “Middy Cruz” Toivonen and drummer Tapani “Tazzy Cruz” Fagerström, kicked him “out of the bus on the street like a pariah” and that they said they were not going to be part of the group anymore. In his own post, Parkkonen said him, Toivonen and Fagerström were “leaving Santa Cruz” due to “issues that [they] cannot solve even though [they] tried everything that [they] could to make this tour and band happen.” Toivonen also commented on the situation saying “it is impossible for [him] to continue as a member of Santa Cruz.” Fagerström said he is “not feeling good to do this anymore” as well.

Santa Cruz Premiere “Young Blood Rising” Video

Santa Cruz have premiered a new video for their new song “Young Blood Rising,” via Classic Rock. This song is from the band’s new album “Bad Blood Rising”, which will be released digitally on October 6 and physically on November 10.

Guitarist Johnny Cruz commented:

“’Young Blood Rising’ was the last song we wrote before hitting the studio. We’ve been on the road touring for two and a half years, experiencing all the highs and lows as a band. Now feels like the right time to return and get the Cruz ball rolling again – we have new blood and new energy.”

“We filmed the video in a old storage hall, inviting a few of our diehard fans. We actually worked with a Finnish movie director, so the filming was slightly different this time compared to previous videos. Much faster, much slicker.

“Usually you spend at a day filming, but this time round it took only four to five hours. Go check out the video and come to our shows, you’ll not be disappointed.”
