Press release:

American rockers THE BRONX have today announced they are returning to Australia and New Zealand in 2022, playing their first Australian shows since 2018. The extensive tour will see The Bronx kick things off at Perth’s Amplifier on May 17, before heading to Adelaide, Newcastle, Sydney, Brisbane, Gold Coast, Melbourne, Geelong, wrapping things up in New Zealand in Wellington and Auckland’s Powerstation on May 31.

This announces follows the release of their The chart topping new album VI by The Bronx (released Aug 2021) debuted at #16 on the ARIA Albums Chart breaking their Australian chart record! It’s the band’s first album to feature former Queens Of The Stone Age drummer Joey Castillo as a member.

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).
