KCRW Exclusive: Download a New Track from Mariachi El Bronx “New Beat”

Written by

Mariachi El Bronx are back!

After returning to their punk rock roots as The Bronx last year, they’ll release a new album as their alter-ego on November 4.

The band recorded most of the album – “III” – over two weeks at a private countryside studio surrounded by woods (with no cell phone reception. The horror!)

We’re thrilled to premiere a track, which is available streaming and as a download below.

More from frontman Matt Caughthran:

New Beat” is a voodoo spell. the first song we wrote for the record. It’s a deep and dark exorcism that set the tone for the entire album. Enjoy.

Mariachi El Bronx recently opened FYF Fest and the sound of their horns was the first thing I heard as I walked into the venue.

I got that little skip in my heart of excitement, that feeling you get when you enter what is, essentially, a theme park for music lovers. They played the perfect first notes.

The power of their live show is palpable and the band will be kicking off a West Coast tour with a date at the El Rey on November 5.
