The Bronx have shared “Mexican Summer” , the final pre-release track off 'Bronx VI' (Aug. 27, Cooking Vinyl) .
"Musically and lyrically, ‘Mexican Summer” is the most The Bronx has ever directly influenced by Mariachi el Bronx,” explains Matt Caughthran. “The feel and groove of the song speak to you in rhythm, as the story of one man’s paradise lost burns violently into the night.”
As the SoCal band have done for each of the singles leading up to the album release, The Bronx have partnered with Craig Stecyk, founder of the famous Zephyr Surfshop that birthed the skate team of the same name and was the basis of the Dogtown documentary and film, for a limited-edition (225) skateboard.
“I’ve known The Bronx since ’02 and have always been intrigued by both their sound and their demonic deconstructivist work ethic,” says Stecyk. "We have interacted on various collaborative aesthetic/acoustic efforts over the years. The skate in question is the logical extrapolation of too much time spent hanging together. In the cartel’s motor home, which is affectionately known as Baked Goods, monotony inspired all and fandangos are endemic.”
