Shipping up to Boston? The Dropkick Murphy’s are! The Quincy-born shamrock-n-roll band is coming back to home tonight for a free concert to promote their latest album “Signed and Sealed in Blood” which drops, you guessed it, today.
Head over to McGreevy’s in Back Bay for a live acoustic performance, a Q and A with band members and CD signing from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. The event is 21+ and free of charge but if you want to get through the doors, make sure you line up early because admission is first come first serve. If you can’t make it in Boston Phoenix & WFNX will broadcast live from the festivities on their websites.
Dropkick’s latest album stays true to their Celtic flair we Bostonians can’t get enough of, whether it’s a loud and proud passion or a guilty pleasure. What’s even better? It was crafted right here in our own territory. The group recorded the tracks this past summer at Q Division Studios in Somerville under their own label Born & Bred Records.
In September, the band encouraged fans to tattoo themselves with their new logo, a rose, which seems to be on theme considering the first single off the album is titled “Rose Tattoo,” featuring Mumford & Son’s Winston Marshall on the banjo.
Have you hear the new Dropkick Murphy’s album? Good enough to get a rose tattoo? Tell us what you think.
