VERA CRUZ embrace the fine art of serious ass kicking with their debut album “Skinandteethandnails”. Balancing confidently on the edge of melodic Hardcore boosted by Rock ‘n’ Roll influences and Metalcore, the French display an astonishing mastery for such a young band. Eager to get on the road, they gave away their first four-track EP “Surviving Farrah Fawcett” (2009) and started touring in France, immediately followed by three weeks touring in the USA, where VERA CRUZ shot a video clip for “The Game” with legendary director Ian McFarland (MESHUGGAH, FEAR FACTORY, AS I LAY DYING). Now “Skinandteethandnails” captures the explosive energy and brutal emotionality that the French unleash during their shows. Get ready to slam!
