Californian hardcore punk outfit The Bronx will return to Australia in November, celebrating 20 years since the release of their debut self-titled album, The Bronx I.

November 2023 is incredibly stacked, with Devin Townsend, Paramore, Bloc Party, Interpol and Frank Turner & The Sleeping Souls already providing huge rock and punk shows across the country that month. Why not have The Bronx join in the fun?

The Bronx will perform at Melbourne’s Northcote Theatre, Brisbane’s Triffid, Sydney’s Metro Theatre, Adelaide’s The Gov and Perth’s Magnet House with special guests, Australia’s CIVIC and the Josh Scogin (The Chariot, Norma Jean)-led ’68 joining them on all dates.

CIVIC’s new album, Taken By Force, has been nominated for the 2023 Australian Music Prize. You can check out the album here.

The general ticket sale will commence on Friday, 28 July, at 10 am local time. However, if you’re feeling super keen and a My Live Nation member, you can access pre-sale tickets on Thursday, 27 July, at 10 am local time. You can find all the ticketing details here.

The Bronx last toured Australia last May, and those shows were their first down under since 2018. The band stopped in regional/different locations and central hubs, booking dates on the Gold Coast, Newcastle and Geelong, as well as the usual suspect cities.

Their 2021 album, The Bronx VI, debuted at #16 on the ARIA Albums Chart in August 2021, an impressive feat for a band that’s been around so long.

Over the band's illustrious career, they've released six original albums and three under their alter ego, Mariachi El Bronx. They have become known for their unique reflection of anguish and emotion, wrapped in a hard-hitting catchy rock aesthetic. 

In 2013, Kill Your Stereo gave a four-star review to The Bronx IV. Ten years after their first self-titled album, we found that it was “raw, aggressive, and – besides some lyrical ambiguity – straightforward. With its slight musical divergence adding character and depth rather than alienating longtime listeners, the band have achieved a happy medium between growth and familiarity.

“The Bronx’s IV is captivating from start to finish, showcasing everything the band excel at. The record’s twelve tracks are powerful in their simplicity, and a decade into their musical career, The Bronx show no signs of slowing down.”
