Dropkick Murphys have announced their new album Turn Up That Dial, set for release on 30th April 2021 via their own label Born & Bred Records. The band’s tenth studio album has been produced by Ted Hutt and to give fans a taster of what’s to come, they’ve released their new single Middle Finger.
Co-lead vocalist and Dropkick Murphys founder Ken Casey says of the album: “On this record, the overall theme is the importance of music, and the bands that made us who we are. We just hope [the album] takes people’s minds off their troubles. We’re so fortunate and grateful to be in the position to share a little happiness in our own way. Our gratitude levels are off the chart. 25 years ago, somebody bet me 30 bucks I couldn’t form a band with three weeks’ notice to open for his band. As kids, we’d never been out of New England and here we are – we’ve made ten records and have been all over the globe. If there’s a message to this album, it’s ‘put your fist up and play it loud.”
Dropkick Murphys will be taking to the stage for their Dropkick Murphys St. Patrick’s Day Stream 2021…Still Locked Down on 17th March 2021 where some of the album tracks will get a live debut. Fans can tune in at 11pm GMT/7pm ET/4pm PT to see the band performing socially distanced on an arena-sized stage. The event will be presented by Pega and sponsored by fans, meaning those who donate before or during the stream will see their name featured onscreen. You can donate HERE to be part of it. The event will be streamed free worldwide HERE.
