THE BRONX have today announced a new Sydney show due to overwhelming demand! The American rockers will now play a second show at Sydney’s Crowbar on Sunday May 22. The first Sydney show on Saturday May 21 sold out last year. Tickets go on sale to the general public Wednesday March 16 at 10am.
The band’s return to Australia and New Zealand in 2022 will be their first Australian shows since 2018 and The Bronx fever is at an all time high. 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, a sold out show in Geelong, wrapping things up in New Zealand in Wellington and Auckland. Supporting them on the Australian leg of the tour will be West Londoners Chubby and the Gang.
Tickets for the second Sydney show go on sale at 10am, Wednesday March 16.
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).
“The Californians have yet to release a subpar album, and that remains true with Bronx VI… THE BRONX continues to creatively wander wherever the hell they want to, and they make it sound so damn good.”Blabbermouth
Joining the Bronx for their first shows on Australian soil is the West London five-piece Chubby and the Gang. Made up of musicians from across the consistently thriving and criminally overlooked UK hardcore scene, Chubby, and the Gang marinate its characteristic speed and sick-of-it-all energy in a mixture of 50s pop sounds. The result is a prickly take on the older, more melodic genres that punk derives from, chewing them up and spitting them out into something mangled but revitalized.
Don’t miss The Bronx with the support of Chubby and the Gang in 2022!
