“Queen of Suffolk County” tells the tale of a woman from the Boston area of Massachusetts, who had a penchant for toss-ups and taking what was hers, whether it was money, men, drugs, or all three. The song then warns us “You best stay out of her way/ She don’t joke, and she don’t play.”
Listen to the song below.
“Queen of Suffolk County” follows the previously released single “Middle Finger.”
Turn Up That Dial marks Dropkick Murphys’ first album in four years. It will also arrive just in time to celebrate their 25th anniversary.
“We just hope [the album] takes people’s minds off their troubles,” said co-vocalist Ken Casey of Turn Up That Dial. “We’re so fortunate and grateful to be in the position to share a little happiness in our own way. Our gratitude levels are off the chart.”
He continued, “Twenty-five years ago, somebody bet me 30 bucks I couldn’t form a band with three weeks’ notice to open for his band. As kids, we’d never been out of New England and here we are – we’ve made ten records and have been all over the globe. If there’s a message to this album, it’s ‘put your fist up and play it loud.’”
