Americans The Bronx set for Limelight 1 this May
Los Angeles hardcore punk band The Bronx’s swaggering interpretation of hardcore punk found them a quick audience when guitarist Joby J. Ford, bassist James Tweedy, vocalist Matt Caughthran, and drummer Jorma Vik founded the band in 2002.
Known for a blistering live show, the quintet attracted attention from major labels after only a handful of performances. An offer from Island/Def Jam materialized after The Bronx’s 12th gig, but the band decided to issue several recordings on its own label, White Drugs, before partnering with a major.
They have released four eponymous rock albums, and three additional albums of mariachi music under the alter ego Mariachi El Bronx.
