DENNIS BUTABI BORG (CRUZH): “We’re Reinventing The Music We Love”


Cruzh’n It

Swedish ’80s-era flag wavers Cruzh are back with a new singer and a new album. Tropical Thunder is the follow-up to the band’s 2016 self-titled debut. New vocalist Alex Waghorn was introduced to Cruzh fans in 2019 when the group released an acoustic version of their song “Aim For The Head.” From there, Cruzh spent most 2020 recording Tropical Thunder, which saw its release on August 6, 2021. I had the chance to speak with bassist Dennis Butabi Borg about the new album.

Highlights Include

  • Discussion of their new album Tropical Thunder
  • Does Cruzh play the 80s nostalgia serious or like Steel Panther?
  • Do they feel any pressure having their album released with 7 other label mates
  • Securing their deal with Frontiers Music
  • How Cruzh discovered their new singer Alex Waghorn
  • Will live shows be possible?
  • Borg’s side project
  • … and much, much more!
