Dropkick Murphys are a Celtic punk band formed in Quincy, Massachusetts, USA. They blended traditional Irish music, Oi!, and punk. Their influences include Stiff Little Fingers, The Pogues, The Clash, Thin Lizzy, The Dubliners, and the Swingin’ Utters.
The band has made a name for itself and built a following as a result of their non stop touring all over the world and their famous St. Patrick’s Day weekend shows, which are held in Boston. Dropkick Murphys also support unions and some of their songs reflect this.
Dropkick Murphys come out swinging with their 6th studio album “The Meanest Of Times” a collection of tales about family, loyalty and remembering where you came from. “The Meanest Of Times” contains all the best elements of the DKM sound: a complex distillation of classic punk rock, Celtic folk and American rock’n‘roll, this album puts the band’s diversity, intensity and sincerity on full display.
“We always wanted to be that band that didn’t forget where it came from and we keep it in the forefront of our minds that we’re all in it together, audience and band members, as one, no one better than the other. That’s the M.O. of a lot of punk bands, but I think sometimes it gets lost the minute a band has any kind of success. We never want to let it go to our heads. We know how lucky we are to be doing this. It’s because of the people that listen to the band’s music we have this opportunity to see the world. I don’t care if we’re playing to 10 people or 10,000 people, those kids that are up front singing our songs are the reason we’re doing this.
And you can come to suport them to Prague Roxy on 12.08.2008, tickets for 150 czk.
