The Bronx, whose upcoming album, Bronx VI (https://thebronx.lnk.to/bronxviPR), is already stacking up widespread praise including Consequence describing the music as joyous rock’n’roll” and Brooklyn Vegan saying “their sound is as full of venom and vinegar as ever,” debut the third single from the upcoming album, releasing “Watering The Well” (https://thebronx.lnk.to/WTWPR/youtube) this morning.
“’Watering The Well’ is equal parts rock n roll rendezvous and back alley Bronx beatdown! With an opening riff that doubles as a call to the wild,” offers Bronx vocalist Matt Caughthran, “and a rhythm section dirtier than the Detroit gutter, listening to this song after midnight will 100% get you arrested.”
The SoCal band, in partnership with San Diego-based Fall Brewing Company, have created a limited-edition, easy drinking lager of the same name (“Watering The Well”), which will be released on May 29. The band stops by the brewery that afternoon (3 p.m. pacific) with exclusive posters, rare and out of print vinyl (including the sold out “Watering The Well” 7-inch) and a commemorative t-shirt.
The Bronx have also partnered with several highly-regarded artists for their now sold out Bronx VI 7-inch series, with “Watering The Well” featuring the artwork of Brian Montuori. The internationally renowned painter is known both for his large scale, often animal-centric, pieces, as well the instantly recognizable covers of The Dillinger Escape Plan’s Miss Machine and One Of Us Is The Killer, and Dälek’s From Filthy Tongue of Gods and Griots. A limited number of “Watering The Well” 7-inch singles are available. Previously released Bronx VI singles have featured the artwork of Jeremy Dean (“White Shadow” – https://youtu.be/pliCeI6ZKps) and DabsMyla (“Superbloom” – https://youtu.be/Lwp0SRmJ_W0).

ABOUT THE BRONX
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).
