Mariachi El Bronx

Story by Jack Foley

MARIACHI El Bronx, the alter ego of acclaimed Los Angeles-based punk outfit The Bronx, kick off their Vans Off the Wall European tour headlining in Dublin tomorrow (Friday, November 18, 2011).

To celebrate they have given Roy Orbison’s Only The Lonely the Mariachi El Bronx treatment and are giving it away for free!

Following the release of their well-received second album, Mariachi El Bronx (II) in September, Mariachi El Bronx played storming shows at this year’s Reading & Leeds Festivals and the reaction to the album in their native US has been equally impressive, topping the Billboard alternative chart.

They’ve just finished touring the US with The Foo Fighters and also recently made their debut US national TV appearance on Jay Leno.
