Sexy Band Alert! Check out THE BRONX!

What is it about those adorable punk boys? Is it the tattoos? The piercings? The overuse of hair gel? The tendency to borrow our skinny jeans? Whatever… Our new obsession  is THE BRONX, a cute little boy band with an edge. Their new Music video is HOT and all we can say is we want one. Any one. Call us. Really. Anytime….

THE BRONX GET SEXY IN NEW “YOUTH WASTED” VIDEO, PREMIERING TODAY AT PLAYGIRL.COM
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 bySam Macon (Dum Dum Girls, Crocodiles), now at PlayGirl.com. 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. 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 Bronxand 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.
