Dropkick Murphys are set to release their seventh full-length studio album, ‘Going Out In Style,’ March 1st on their own Born & Bred Records (ILG). Fans will get a taste of the new music before it’s released when Dropkick Murphys hit the road February 23rd for their annual St. Patrick’s Day U.S. tour.
The album was produced by Ted Hutt and features the group’s signature blend of punk rock energy, folk soul, Irish spirit and American rock ‘n roll on tracks like “Memorial Day” (streaming now at www.RollingStone.com), “Going Out In Style,” “The Hardest Mile,” “Cruel,” “Climbing A Chair To Bed,” and a rousing rendition of “Peg O’ My Heart” with guest vocals by Bruce Springsteen.
‘Going Out in Style’ is described as one anthem after another with songs like “Hang ‘Em High” featuring an unforgettable bagpipe laden riff, driving guitars and big drums.
The tour, featuring Against Me! as support on most dates, will wind up in Boston for the band’s run of St. Patty’s Day week hometown gigs. Also look for the Murphys to tour Europe in April and August, with additional U.S. dates planned for May and June.Note the date on this article may be incorrect due to importing it from our old system.
