Signed by record executive Clive Davis, Cruzados released their debut album "Cruzados" (1985) and "After Dark"(1987) on Arista Records spawning the singles and
videos "Motorcycle Girl" and "Bed of Lies" which quickly became MTV favourites and chart toppers, with the latter single reaching the #4 position on the Billboard chart in 1987.
The Cruzados original songs and fan favourites in their live shows would eventually find their way into blockbuster motion pictures such as Roadhouse, From Dusk Till Dawn, Desperado, Gun Men, and more.
The Cruzados would appear as themselves in the hit motion picture Roadhouse as well. Cruzados are excited to release their long awaited and much anticipated third album, a collection of 11, all new original songs titled "She's Automatic!" The new album promises to deliver the bands signature rock and roll sound and spirit that first put Cruzados on the map some 30 years ago.
The bands new line-up features Cruzados co-founder bassist/songwriter Tony Marsico, vocalist Ron Young (Little Caesar), guitarist Loren Molinare (The Dogs), guitarist Mark Tremalgia and drummer Rob Klonel.
The album includes guest performances by John Doe (X), Dave Alvin (The Blasters), David Hildago and Steve Berlin (Los Lobos), Gia Ciambotti (Bruce Springsteen), Melanie Vammen (The Muffs,The Pandoras), Greg Kuehn (TSOL), Jimmy Z (Rod Stewart), Buck Johnson (Aerosmith), among others.
