Today acclaimed Los Angeles-based punk band The Bronx teams up with

the iconic erotic website PlayGirl.com to premiere its new video, “Youth

Wasted.” The clip features three dancers – Steve (“The Hammer”), Jim

(“Double Gunz”) and Mike (“The Meat Wagon”) – who take it off while The

Bronx turns in a ferocious performance of “Youth Wasted,” the first single

from The Bronx (IV). You can check out the video, which was directed by

Sam Macon (Dum Dum Girls, Crocodiles), now. Taking their relationship a

step further, Steve, Jim and Mike opened for The Bronx at a recent record

release show in LA.

 

MTV.com hailed “Youth Wasted” as “a brand-new rock anthem…with a full-

frontal attack that lands between the Foo Fighters’ alternative assault and The

Black Keys’ bluesy swagger” while Rolling Stone said: “the Bronx refuses to

relent, unleashing hook after earworm hook on tracks like adolescent anthem

‘Youth Wasted,’ the powerfully subdued ‘Torches’ and scorched-earth closer

‘Last Revelation.’” “[The Bronx] are coming to kick the planet’s collective ass,”

said Alternative Press, which awarded the new album four stars, calling it

“their most infectious record to date.”

 

The Bronx (IV) was released earlier this month by White Drugs/ATO

Records in the U.S., PIAS in the U.K./Europe and Shock Records in

Australia/New Zealand. The band will wrap up a U.K. tour this Thursday,

February 27, and tour Australia in the spring. The band will also appear

at Metallica’s Orion Festival this June. Additional U.S. dates will be

announced soon.

 

With its blistering live performances and series of eponymously titled

full-length albums, The Bronx – comprising Matt Caughthran, Joby

J. Ford, Jorma Vik, Brad Magers and Ken Mochikoshi Horne –has,

in its 10-year history, redefined what punk means. After 2008’s The

Bronx III, the band members released two self-titled mariachi albums

as Mariachi El Bronx and toured widely under both names. Mariachi

El Bronx will join Flogging Molly and Donots on the 9th Annual

Green 17 U.S. tour, which kicks off March 9. See below for itinerary.
