Dropkick Murphys Release Fan-Asissted Video For ‘Rose Tattoo’
Boston-based band Dropkick Murphys are excited to share 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 Marsalis from Mumford & Sons playing banjo. The video premiered on RollingStone.com on Wednesday, and you can watch the video on Youtube below.
"Rose Tattoo" is one of the songs off the band's forthcoming album, Signed and Sealed in Blood, to be released January 8th via Born and Bred Records. Presale for the album will begin on November 23rd. This pre-order will include a special offer where the albums will be bundled with tickets for the band's February and March St. Patrick's Day Tour (dates to be announced).
The album is their second with producer Ted Hutt (Gaslight Anthem, Old Crow Medicine Show), which was recorded 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."
Dropkick Murphys are currently in the middle of their Fall US tour, with upcoming dates along the West Coast and the Mountain States, including two shows in Canada. For a full itinerary of remaining tour dates, please see below.
Dropkick Murphys--Al Barr (lead vocals), Tim Brennan (guitars, accordion,
