I realise that everyone with a working Internet connection or access to broadband probably knows this already, but this is interesting news people! L.A. punk rockers, The Bronx have a new track up on their myspace entitled ‘Knifemanâ€™ and it can be downloaded as a lovely low-quality encoded mp3. Yeah!
Rocket From The Crypt fans will be pleased to hear the ‘Bring Us Bulletsâ€™ riff being used like a cheap whore on a Saturday night, whilst current Bronx fans will greet Matt Caughthranâ€™s trademark vocal yelp like an old friend.
Ã‚Â ‘Knifemanâ€™ will feature on the bandâ€™s new record, (self-titled of course) which is out September this year. Theyâ€™re also working on a ‘Mariachi El Bronxâ€™ album, which will probably be out at the same time. A video of them playing a Mariachi track live is on their myspace. Also, two new members have been added to the ‘El Bronxâ€™ side, notably Brad Magers on trumpet and Vincent Hidalgo from The Drips.
The band is currently on the Vans Warped Tour, making them the first punk band to ever play there (Oooooh BURN!) and several dates in August around the U.S.
