A SONG WHICH MADE YOU WANT TO MAKE MUSIC

Deep PurpleSmoke On The Water


BEST RIDER YOU HAVE EVER HAD

A boat with a Sauna and tons of liquor


CRAZIEST MOMENT YOU’VE EXPERIENCED IN THE BAND

People trying to rob our tour bus, they didnt succeed

DEEPEST LYRICS ONE OF YOUR SONGS FEATURES

Drag Me Out Of The Darkness


EASIEST SONG YOU WROTE

Aiming High


FAVOURITE SONG IN YOUR SET

HARDEST THING ABOUT BEING IN A BAND

There´s no such thing


INTERESTING FACT ABOUT ONE OF YOUR MEMBERS

Our bass player Middy is actually a Doctor in dog whispering


JOKES YOU HAVE IN THE BAND

Too many inside jokes that no one would understand


KEY TO WRITING A SONG

Emotion, and to let the song write itself


LONGEST DISTANCE YOU’VE TRAVELLED TO PLAY A SHOW

We travelled 8000km to Japan just for just one show

 

MOST INSPIRING MUSICIAN YOU’VE EVER EXPERIENCED

When we toured with Sebastian Bach, we learned a lot from him


NEW BAND YOU’D RECOMMEND

Lost Society from Finland

OPENING BAND OF CHOICE FOR SANTA CRUZ

Some great upcoming band that I probably would’ve never heard otherwise. Like Pantera, when they opnened up for Megadeth in the early days.


PLACE YOU’D MOST LIKE TO TOUR

Well we’ve toured almost everywhere except South-America and Australia so those places would be cool to visit


QUOTE THAT YOU’D LIKE TO PASS ON TO READERS

Rock is not dead it´s just sleeping, and ready to wake up again.


REASON FOR THE TITLE OF YOUR RECENT/FORTHCOMING RELEASE

It describes the feeling that we had a while back, in both a good and a bad way

THE OLD DAYS OF MUSIC WERE BETTER THAN THOSE CURRENT, DO YOU AGREE

Definitely not


UNUSUAL MERCHANDISE

Dildos


VARIATIONS YOU’D LIKE TO DO ON ANY OF YOUR SONGS

I think they’re good as they are now, you have to learn to let go after you released them. Maybe a Trap cover from Post Malone would be cool hahah


WHAT DO YOUR FANS MEAN TO YOU

They are the reason why we do this, without them there wouldn’t be Santa Cruz


X-RAYS OR ANY TREATMENTS NEEDED FOR BAND RELATED INJURIES

Middy’s eardrum exploded when we played Mötörboat from Miami to Bahamas and back. 

YOU’RE LATE FOR A SHOW, WHO’S FAULT IS IT

Mine or our singer Archie’s
