Mariachi El Bronx – the alter ego of acclaimed Los Angeles punk outfit The Bronx – release the third in its series of self-titled albums, via White Drugs/Cooking Vinyl!

With 'Mariachi El Bronx (III),' the band took a fresh approach. Not content to simply excel within the confines of the mariachi genre, they ditched the rulebook and dusted off old sequencers, synths and an ARP. The 10 striking songs that resulted fuse traditional melodies with modern ambience.  

The band recorded most of '(III)' at Haunted Hallow Studios in Charlottesville, Virginia, a surreal private countryside location with absolutely no cell phone reception, but plenty of strange sculptures and miles of woods in every direction. Mariachi El Bronx – comprising Matt Caughthran, Joby J. Ford, Jorma Vik, Brad Magers, Ken Horne, Vincent Hidalgo and Ray Suen – spent two weeks there, recording with producer John Avila (Oingo Boingo), who co-produced '(I)' and '(II)' with the band.

From the social commentary of tracks like "New Beat" and "Sixes And Sevens" to the reflective "Wildfires" and "High Tide," '(III)' reveals a band coming into its own, extending the proverbial middle finger to tradition – and backing it up 100%. DJ Bonebreak (X) guests on marimbas on "Nothing's Changed" and harp virtuoso Willie Acuña (Mariachi Sol de Mexico) joins the band on "Raise The Dead."
