Dropkick Murphys will come out swinging on the back of their new album "Signed And Sealed In Blood", due out via Dew Process on 11 January 2013. The album, said to resemble the "last 30 seconds of a Stanley Cup hockey game: frenetic and dangerous", is the band’s eighth-full length effort and sees the seven-piece totally on top of their game as songwriters and performers.
Australia is already familiar with their raucous live presence; a stage swarming with sweat and swagger. Dropkicks have an enviable reputation for delivering a live show that can satisfy fans of any age and predilection. Everyone from old school skate punx to those more recently recruited by the foot stomping Celtic anthems of "Going Out In Style" can emerge from a Dropkick Murphys show with an irrepressible smile.
Tickets on sale Thursday 15 November.
Pre-orders for the new Dropkick Murphys album are available with ticket purchases.
