Santa Cruz featuring frontman Archie Cruz to release new single “Moonchild” on February 20th

Santa Cruz consisting of frontman Archie Cruz and drummer Toxi Cruz will be releasing a new single titled “Moonchild” on February 20, 2021.

In a recent interview with the Finnish publication Soundi, Archie Cruz was asked about the new single “Moonchild” to which he stated in part (with Google translation): “Instead of LA glam metal, “Moonchild” offers ’70s boogie rock from somewhere between Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, The Strokes, and Jet. For “Witchy Woman” inspired lyrics, I drew inspiration from Fleetwood Mac and The Eagles.”

Santa Cruz landed the #1 album on the Sleaze Roxx’s Top Ten Albums of 2013 with Screaming For Adrenaline. ¬†but were unable to crack the Top 10 of a Sleaze Roxx top albums of the year list ever again. The Sleaze Roxx readers had more patience for Santa Cruz after Screaming For Adrenaline took the #10 spot on the Sleaze Roxx Readers’ Top 20 Albums of 2013, since¬†Santa Cruz finished at #20 in 2015 and Bad Blood Rising ended at #8 in 2017 before Katharsis failed to crack the Readers’ Top 20 in 2019.
