The Bronx Revealed As Very Special Guests For Fireball’s Fuelling The Fire Tour 2018
Fireball have revealed that none other than Los Angeles-based punk rock heroes The Bronx are the very special guests on this year’s Fireball – Fuelling The Fire Tour 2018.
“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!” says frontman Matt Caughthran.”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 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 performances, since their inception in 2002 the band – led by their charismatic frontman Matt Caughthran – have 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.
Fireball are also pleased to announce the return of long-term tour buddy and special guest DJ Matt Stocks (ex-Kerrang! Radio and Team Rock Radio) this year, who will once again be spinning a selection of the hottest punk rock party anthems between acts all night long on each date of the tour.
Don’t forget, Fireball’s Hottest Band 2019 Competition is now open for entry, giving bands the chance to open their local date of the tour, with this year’s newly introduced live heats presented in association with none other than Kerrang! Magazine, AKA us! The competition closes on Monday 16th July 2018 with finalists announced on Wednesday 1st August 2018. See competition entry page for full T&Cs!
