Grab their version of 'Only The Lonely'

Mariachi El Bronx have marked the launch of their new UK tour with a Roy Orbison tour.

Beginning life as a one off acoustic project, Mariachi El Bronx saw a gang of LA punks take on an unexpected guise. Returning for a second instalment this summer, the band are preparing to hit the live trail for a series of British dates.

Matching punk energy with the emotive side of mariachi, the band are a fantastic live act. Mariachi El Bronx have decided to tackle a Roy Orbison classic to mark the beginning of the tour, with 'Only The Lonely' getting re-worked.

Originally a showcase for Orbison's warm, tenor voice Mariachi El Bronx turn 'Only The Lonely' into a frenetic Mexican workout. Grab the track below...
