Dropkick Murphys Announce 2013 St. Patty’s Day Tour

Big Hassle Media

Dropkick Murphys today announce their plans for 2013′s “St. Patrick’s Day Tour,” which will begin on February 21 in Cleveland, OH and concluding with three dates in their hometown of Boston, MA including the fulfillment of the band’s career-long dream of headlining the Boston Garden, now known as TD Garden on March 15. The Garden show will be billed as “Dropkick Murphys Irish Festival,” with bands and attractions on two stages.

The entire tour will have an epic finale on St. Patrick’s Day (March 17) at The House of Blues on Boston’s famed Lansdowne Street. For a full itinerary please see below.

Pre-order for the band’s newest full-length LP, ‘Signed and Sealed in Blood,’ begins Friday November 23-Black Friday-via iTunes as well as the band’s webstore. The album is to be released January 8th via band-owned Born and Bred Records. Fans who pre-order the album via the webstore will also have the opportunity to purchase a ticket-merchandise bundle for the band’s 2013 “St. Patrick’s Day” tour. The details of the bundle option is below the tour dates.

‘Signed and Sealed in Blood’ is the band’s second with producer Ted Hutt (Gaslight Anthem, Old Crow Medicine Show). It was recorded by James R. Brown (Foo Fighters) at Boston’s Q Division studios, and mixed by Joe Chiccarelli (The White Stripes). “We had such a great time writing our last album, Going Out In Style, we were excited to get back into the studio right away,” says bassist and co-lead singer Ken Casey. “Where Going Out in Style was a concept album-kind of intricate and difficult-this one is catchy, fun, and as sing-along as can be.”

The band recently shared their new music video for their song “Rose Tattoo.” The video features contributions by the band’s most devoted fans, whom the band asked to get tattoos of the new album art, and then send in videos and photos of their new ink. “Rose Tattoo” features Winston Marshall from Mumford & Sons playing banjo. The video premiered on RollingStone.com on Wednesday, and you can watch the video on Youtube by clicking the link here.
