But first, the band have released a new single White Shadow as an early taste of what to expect.
Vocalist Matt Caughthran describes the new track as “a song about spiralling. Wild eyed guitars, drums, and bass mixed with a high speed chase and a frantic mind unravelling. CLASSIC F*CKING BRONX.”
White Shadow is the first track off The Bronx’s upcoming album Bronx VI enlists the expertise of producer Joe Baressi, who has previously worked with artists such as Tool, Melvins and Bad Religion. The new record was produced at Joe’s studio, House of Compression, in Pasadena, California.
The Bronx has been a band for nearly two decades, they have highlighted their upcoming album as a highly collaborative process between band members and experimenting with their musical path. Guitarist Joby Ford says “from day one we really decided that we wanted to make a record that went in different directions and places. The thing I like a lot about it is that everybody contributed.”
Matt continues with “we’re such good friends and we’re so tight creatively, but we’re still learning stuff about each other… this is a really important record for us growth-wise because it kicked down a lot of doors that needed to be kicked down. I feel like now going forward the sky is the limit.”
Bronx VI features the debut of songwriting input from guitarist Ken Horne and bassist Brad Magers.
The eleven-track album includes White Shadow, and is due to be unleashed to the world on 27th August, 2021 via Cooking Vinyl.
