“We are really excited to start working with M-Theory Audio, and be part of a new label and new team!” explains Santa Cruz singer Archie.
At the end of the day the apple didn’t fall all that far from the tree. People can still expect the Santa Cruz sound — the fast guitars and heavy drums are still there, just served with a different sauce. All in all, we see Bad Blood Rising as a ‘comeback album’. A start of a new era.”“, states guitarist Johnny. “This album has probably both the heaviest and the softest Santa Cruz moments on it. We didn’t intentionally try to come up with something totally different than before, but I guess some of the new influences we’ve picked up along the way can be heard on these songs”
The band already released the record’s infectious first single, “River Phoenix,” earlier this summer, but will release a video for forthcoming single “Young Blood Rising” in the coming weeks.

In between all the touring, Santa Cruz somehow also found a way to squeeze in the recording of their eponymous second album, which debuted at #3 on the Finnish charts upon its release in 2015. Featuring “We Are the Ones To Fall” – the most aired song of the year on the Finnish nationwide station Radio Rock. The band also appeared in a Mercedes-Benz commercial. After additional extensive touring around the world (including three jaunts to America, where they performed before thousands at the Rock On The Range festival in 2015), the group now returns with their raucous third LP Bad Blood Rising. Be prepared.
