The Bronx is what punk needs: they harness the genre's classic fire but then bend it to their whim, forging rock n' roll swagger together with hardcore grit. The L.A. quintet churn out raw riffs and piercing hooks, and their third offering, The Bronx (III), brandishes enough savage charm to spark a revolution. Matt Caughthran croons and screams about fun, family-friendly characters like "Knifeman" and the "Pleasure Seekers." Joby Ford and Ken Horne's guitar playing blasts like a machine gun, while Jorma Vik's drumming is fierce, fiery and furious; amidst the aural assault, Brad Magers holds a tight bass groove. Over the course of their first two offerings, the band garnered massive critical claim and carved out a national fan base from touring with the likes of Mastodon, Converge and Every Time I Die. They even occupied a main stage spot on 2008's Warped Tour. L.A. has been "in the know" about The Bronx for years, but with this new album, the band's about to expose the whole world to their bleeding and ravenous rock n' roll spirit. You've been warned.
