After two albums under the moniker Mariachi El Bronx, Los Angeles punks the Bronx are back with riotous riffs and howling, shout-along choruses on their fourth self-titled LP, which will hit shelves February 5th on ATO. If you can't wait to rock out till then, you can take an exclusive first listen to The Bronx (IV) right now. Kicking off with the pummeling "The Unholy Hand," 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."

Song Stories

“San Francisco Mabel Joy”

Mickey Newbury | 1969

A country-folk song of epic proportions, "San Francisco Mabel Joy" tells the tale of a poor Georgia farmboy who wound up in prison after a move to the Bay Area found love turning into tragedy. First released by Mickey Newbury in 1969, it might be more familiar through covers by Waylon Jennings, Joan Baez and Kenny Rogers. "It was a five-minute song written in a two-minute world," Newbury said. "I was told it would never be cut by any artist ... I was told you could not use the term 'redneck' in a song and get it recorded."
