Los Angeles band, The Bronx, recently announced the release of their fifth album ‘V‘ for September 22nd.
They also hit us with the first taste of it, ‘Sore Throat‘ and Australian tour dates supporting Pennywise which are on sale now and selling fast.
Keeping the good times flowing, they have now shared the track ‘Two Birds‘.
Give it a listen below.
The new album was produced by Rob Schnapf (Elliot Smith, Beck, FIDLAR) and will be released by White Drugs / Cooking Vinyl Australia.
If you missed it earlier, or just want to go another round, listen to ‘Sore Throat‘ below.
The Los Angeles-based quintet — singer Caughthran, guitarist Joby J. Ford, guitarist Ken Horne, bassist Brad Magers and drummer David Hidalgo Jr. (replacing Jorma Vik, who departed the band in 2016) — has lost none its pugnacity.
‘V‘ is as hard-hitting, confrontational and relevant as ever. And while it may or may not sound more grown-up than their vein-bulging early releases, they will not apologize either way.
“It has the angst and social commentary that has characterized us from the beginning. Only now the angst is aimed at more than just superficial things and the social commentary is directed at more than just people who like different music than us.“
The band has gained notice for their dual lives they have lived for the past eight years, maintaining an alter ego as Mariachi El Bronx that is as true to that form of music as their hardcore is to the punk ethos. In any iteration, The Bronx are the real deal, ready for the next fight.
Pre-orders for the album are available right away. CD, Vinyl and Bundle options are available locally [Here].
