Academy Events and Fireball are pleased to reveal Los Angeles-based punk rock band THE BRONX as the very special guests on this year’s ‘Fireball – Fuelling The Fire’ Tour 2018.
Front man Matt Caughthran commented on the news: “We are so stoked to be a part of the 2018 Fireball - Fuelling the Fire Tour with Flogging Molly, Face to Face, and Lost in Stereo! We played it with Mariachi el Bronx back in 2016 and had a fucking blast, but now it’s time for some proper Bronx Carnage. These shows will be our last of the year so you can guarantee we are gonna give ‘em everything we got! Get the fireball ready...”
Hitting the road throughout December 2018, the ‘Fireball – Fuelling The Fire Tour’ will feature a star studded line-up of the best in punk music, with The Bronx joining previously announced headliners in Celtic-punk legends Flogging Molly, So Cal punk veterans Face to Face, and the Glasgow pop-punks from Fireball’s Hottest Band 2018 Lost in Stereo.
In 2017, The Bronx resurfaced with The Bronx V, their fifth eponymous album and first in four years, still as hard-hitting, confrontational and relevant as ever. Renowned for their explosive, unpredictable and riotous performances, since their inception in 2002 the band – led by their charismatic frontman Matt Caughthran – have rightly carved out a name for themselves as one of the greatest live acts of their ilk. Previously appearing on the ‘Fireball - Fuelling The Fire’ Tour in their Mexican-flavoured guise as Mariachi El Bronx, this time around they’ll be bringing the full force of their punk roots to the tour.
