Dropkick Murphys proudly remain Boston’s rock ‘n’ roll underdogs turned champions. Since 1996, the boys have created the kind of music that’s meant to be chanted at last call, in packed arenas, and during the fourth quarter, third period or ninth inning of a comeback rally.
The band’s latest album, Turn Up That Dial (2021), released via Dropkick Murphys’ own Born & Bred Records, is their tenth studio album and fourth consecutive Billboard Top 10 album debut, joining 11 Short Stories Of Pain & Glory (2017), Signed and Sealed in Blood (2013) and Going Out In Style (2011). Dropkick Murphys recently released a digital-only expanded edition of their Turn Up That Dial album, available in both stereo and 3-dimensional Dolby Atmos mixes. The expanded album features three bonus tracks including “We Shall Overcome” and the previously released B-sides, the cover songs “James Connolly” (by Larry Kirwan) and “The Bonny” (by Gerry Cinnamon).
The band’s celebrated discography also includes gold-selling album The Warrior’s Code (2005), featuring the near double platinum classic “I’m Shipping Up To Boston.”
Overall, Dropkick Murphys’ music has generated half a billion streams. They’ve quietly moved 8 million-plus units worldwide, sold out gigs on multiple continents and generated millions of livestream views—even nabbing the No. 3 spot on Pollstar’s “Top 2020 Livestreams.” Whether you caught a legendary gig at The Rathskeller (The Rat) under Kenmore Square, found the band by taking the T to Newbury Comics to cop Do Or Die in ‘98, discovered them in Martin Scorsese’s Academy Award-winning The Departed, or saw ‘em throw down at Coachella (or one of hundreds of other festivals), you’ve become a part of their extended family.
