Dropkick Murphys have announced their 10th album, Turn Up That Dial, set to come out April 30th via their own label, Born & Bred Records.
The upcoming release marks the band’s first album in four years. It will also arrive just in time to celebrate their 25th anniversary. The band gives us a taste of the new record with its lead single “Middle Finger.” The 11-track album also includes the previously released “Mick Jones Nicked My Pudding.”
“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.’”
Speaking about the new song Casey explained, “Thinking of my younger days, I made things a lot harder for myself than they needed to be — and still pay for some of those mistakes now.”
