The Bronx Share New Single “Two Birds”
Announce Headlining Tour, Set To Release Fifth Album, V, On September 22 Through ATO Records
Los Angeles band, The Bronx, will be releasing its fifth album, V, on September 22. The new album was produced by Rob Schnapf (Elliott Smith, Beck, FIDLAR) and will be released by ATO Records.
The band has shared the second single off the record “Two Birds” which can be heard here.
“Two Birds” follows the first single “Sore Throat” which was released last month.
Singer Matt Caughthran says of the track…
“‘Two birds’ is an ode to terrible lovers. Flaming Space trash re-entering the atmosphere and orgasming on impact. Desperate times call for desperate pleasures.”
Pre-order the album here.
Additionally, the band has announced a nationwide headlining tour kicking off in Los Angeles on September 22nd. Full tour schedule 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,” guitarist Joby J. Ford says, “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.
