Acclaimed Irish-punk band Dropkick Murphys are set to drop their new album, Signed and Sealed In Blood, on January 8 and we're celebrating by bringing you an exclusive video series to coincide with its release. We've teamed up with our friends from AbsolutePunk, Alter the Press, Property of Zack, Punk News and Under The Gun Review to bring you an exclusive stream of the album's 12 tracks, accompanied by video commentary from the band.
We're starting things off today with album opener "The Boys Are Back"—a tune which the band deem "a classic Dropkick Murphys opening track." From the signature bagpipes and tearing guitar riffs to the stomping pecussion and boisterous melodies, this track is a tremendous kick-off to an album that promises plenty more colossal anthems.
Check it out above and head to AbsolutePunk to watch the video for the album's second track, "Prisoner's Song." Then, stay tuned to each site next week, as we'll be continuing this series with each of the album's subsequent tracks!
