The LA-based punk rockers are back with the latest song from their upcoming full-length album Bronx VI.
Mexican Summer is the fifth track from the band’s forthcoming sixth studio album. The track blends rock, blues and punk to reinforce the genre-blending brilliance of the SoCal rockers. The new track drops in collaboration with a limited edition skateboard featuring artwork by the multifaceted creator, Craig Stecyk III.
The influence of the band’s classic Mexican music alter-ego Mariachi El Bronx shows up in this latest track. Lead vocalist Matt Caughthran has explained, “Musically and lyrically, Mexican Summer is the most The Bronx has ever directly influenced by Mariachi el Bronx. The feel and groove of the song speak to you in rhythm, as the story of one man’s paradise lost burns violently into the night.”
“I’ve known The Bronx since ’02 and have always been intrigued by both their sound and their demonic deconstructivist work ethic,” Stecyk recently told Juice Magazine. “We have interacted on various collaborative aesthetic/acoustic efforts over the years. The skate in question is the logical extrapolation of too much time spent hanging together. In the cartel’s motor home, which is affectionately known as Baked Goods, monotony inspired all and fandangos are endemic.”
Bronx VI will be available from August 27th through Cooking Vinyl.

Everyone should have a soundtrack playing loudly in the background of their life. I was born moshing to my own beat and have never swayed from my love of music. Spreading my passion through the written word is my soul’s purpose. My punk heart beats loudly with the rhythm of my rock soul. I plan to continue to mosh like no one gives a shit.
