Call To Confirm Colored Copies Are Still Available
Produced by Rob Schnapf (Elliot Smith, Beck, FIDLAR) and released on ATO Records, V is the aptly titled fifth album from Los Angeles, CA punk band The Bronx. The quintet has certainly lost none of its pugnacity as 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.
