Song Premiere: Dropkick Murphys - "The Boys Are Back"

Music  |  Audio

Dropkick Murphys have always had a distinctive sound, blending punk with Irish folk elements to create a product that is quite their own. Known for their constant touring schedule, it was a huge change of pace when the band paused this year to delve deeper into their songwriting.

Now Dropkick Murphys have revealed an even louder, bolder sound than ever before. The band’s eighth studio album Signed and Sealed in Blood is due for release on Jan. 8, 2013.

The first track from the album is a great signifier of what’s to come, and from the very first lyric it’s spelled out that “The boys are back and they’re looking for trouble.” You can listen to the track, “The Boys Are Back,” in the player below.
