dropkick murphys seventh studio album 'going out in style'. from the meanest of times to the best of times dropkick murphys want to lift your spirits during these tough times with the party to end all parties blasting from your speakers. the murphys know how to turn a wake in to a party. now in their 15th year with a scorsese soundtrack hit, a us top 20 album, a lifetime membership to every boston sports team and a sound owing as much to springsteen and the pogues as to the clash dropkick murphys have come a long way from the days of boston's rathskeller. dropkick murphys are not your typical punk band, they're boston's biggest rock band, a band that plays irish music with punk roots. a band with enormous families and armies of friends. they roll deep. dropkick murphys' music is so fierce and furious, their stage presence so explosive, and their commitment to their fans so ironclad, one can't help but be moved. they are the ac/dc of celtic punk rock. on 'going out in style', dropkick murphys throw a 45 minute, 49 second party to end all parties, all the while reveling in the irish tradition of telling tales of triumph, tragedy and celebration through music. the band revives the art of the album as a cohesive whole on this raucous and rollicking romp overflowing with punk rock energy, folk soul, and rebellious spirit. dropkick murphys deliver one anthem after another. 'hang 'em high' ignites the album with a gang chant into a unforgettable bagpipe laden riff, driving guitars and big drums. nodding to ac/dc while infusing flourishes of celtic soul, 'hang 'em high' is the ultimate battle cry. then there's 'take 'em down,' which continues to display the band's social consciousness and their unwavering support for organized labor. on songs such as 'broken hymns' and 'cruel' the band explores new territory, incorporating a myriad of sounds and textures with arena-ready drum beats, diverse instrumentation and epic refrains.
