Celtic Punk Rockers the Dropkick Murphys are back doing what they do best - playing it hard and playing it loud. There is a reason we love the Dropkicks and that is we know what to expect. They know where they sit in the music universe and are very happy to occupy that space.
They have been quoted as saying “Put your fist up and play it loud. We've all done plenty of lamenting, so the main goal was to keep this fun.” That’s exactly what they deliver on Turn Up That Dial. With the ensemble of musicians that bring that taste of Ireland to the punk sound.
It would be easy to compare the guys to The Pogues and I guess that should be taken as a compliment, but the Dropkicks just step the noise up a level. Picture The Pogues crossed with The Clash and you’re in the area.
