The Bronx have released the first video in support of their upcoming album, Bronx VI (Aug. 27, Cooking Vinyl), sharing the gritty, garage-based, Estevan Oriol directed clip for “Curb Feelers” Watch the video here.
“Every Bronx record has a backbone track, a sonic anchor that sets the tone for the entire album,” explains vocalist Matt Caughthran, “’Curb Feelers’ is the rock that the rest of the record breaks itself against.” The song debuted via Daniel Carter’s BBC Radio 1 Rock Show, where it was declared the week’s “Rockest Record.”
The band will be joining Rancid and the Dropkick Murphys for a U.S. tour, joining the trek on Aug. 10 in Minnesota and wrapping up on Oct. 16 at The Shrine in Los Angeles. The SoCal outfit will also be featured on this year’s Riot Fest (Sept. 18) and Punk Rock Bowling (Sept. 25). Full list of dates below.

The Bronx formed in 2002, releasing their self-titled debut album the following year. Over the Los Angeles-based band’s 19 year career, The Bronx have released five original albums under their original namesake, and three albums under their alter ego, Mariachi El Bronx. Both iterations of the now legendary SoCal outfit have been hailed for harnessing the “unleashed cries of youthful blue-collar anguish” (Los Angeles Times), and for writing “hard-hitting and catchy hard rock tracks” (Loudwire). The Bronx is Matt Caughthran (vocals), Joby J. Ford (guitar), Ken Horne (guitar), Brad Magers (bass) and Joey Castillo (drums).
