The Finnish glam rockers SANTA CRUZ is out touring with MUSTASCH, see the dates below. They also have dropped a new video for the latest single and today's tune "Let Them Burn" that is taken from their eponymous 2nd album "SANTA CRUZ", released Mars 2015.
The tune is a heavy catchy glamcore piece :) The video captures the essence of the band’s explosive shows.
SANTA CRUZ formed in 2007 in Helsinki by Archie Kuosmanen and Johnny Parkkonen. The following year, bass player Middy Toivonen joined in. The band released two demos in 2008-2009. After changing a number of temporary drummers, they finally settled for a full-time drummer, Taz Fagerström in 2009 becoming a 4-member band. After a self-released EP of 6 songs titled "Anthems for the Young 'n' Restless", they signed with Finnish Spinefarm Records in 2012 and released their first studio album "Screaming for Adrenaline" in April 2013. Their eponymous 2nd album "SANTA CRUZ" was released in March 2015. The album featured a heavier sound than the previous and the band has described its sound as "glamcore".
