After twenty years, Dropkick Murphys remain bigger than ever, having sold over 6 million albums world wide. Their forthcoming CD, 11 Short Stories Of Pain & Glory, is a soundtrack to tragedy and triumph alike. On this album, the band carries on the tradition of rough and tumble storytelling – the type of writing that never leaves fans wondering whether the band have lived what they’re making a song about. A look back at childhood, a snapshot of a clueless jerk, a stop-you-in-your tracks reflection on a terrorist tragedy… There are moments of ass-kicking Celtic punk attitude, ball-busting wisecracks, tear-jerking confessions, and the type of upbeat words of wisdom that may be chanted loud and proud across arenas and stadiums world wide. The band continues to sell out venues all over the world. They’ve Boston’s Fenway Park and been individually invited to share the stage with everyone from Foo Fighters to Bruce Springsteen to Mumford & Sons. The group’s single “I’m Shipping Up To Boston”– from 2005’s Certified Gold The Warrior’s Code–has sold nearly 2 million copies. “I’m Shipping Up To Boston,” a song with lyrics penned by Woody Guthrie, gained mainstream notoriety after being prominently featured in Martin Scorsese’s Academy Award-winning film The Departed. It may be often heard at sporting events and on television as a theme song for plenty of sports teams (even out of doors of Boston).
