Dropkick Murphys have announced their new album This Machine Still Kills Fascists is set to be released on 30th September 2022 via the band’s label Dummy Luck Music/[PIAS].

The album will bring Woody Guthrie’s lyrics into the modern day through the ten tracks which feature on the release. Speaking of the album, the band’s founder Ken Casey says, “The project has been a long time in the making. Nora Guthrie thought her father would’ve got a kick out of us, would’ve liked us, that we were somewhat kindred spirits so to speak, which to us was a huge honor.”

“I collected lyrics on all kinds of topics…lyrics that seemed to be needed to be said – or screamed – today. Ken Casey is a master at understanding Woody’s lyrics, which can be complicated, long, deadly serious, or totally ridiculous. DKM is capable of delivering them all,” explains Nora Guthrie on her involvement within the album.
Alongside the announcement, they have also revealed the first single from the album will be released on 6th July. Two 6’s Upside Down will be released next month along with an accompanying music video for the track.
We all love how ‘Two 6’s…’ came out. We’ve actually been playing it live on tour in Europe and the crowds have been super enthusiastic about it. Plus we really love to play it live,” says Casey.
Check out the album trailer to find out what you can expect from the release.

Two 6’s Upside Down is available to pre-save here. Whilst This Machine Still Kills Fascists will follow in September, available digitally and on CD initially before a vinyl release in November. You can pre-order the album now.
