New Album Turn Up That Dial
Out April 30 Via Born & Bred Records
Later today, Dropkick Murphys will be premiering the music video for their new single, “Queen Of Suffolk County,” from their forthcoming album Turn Up That Dial, due out April 30 via band-owned Born & Bred Records.
Just prior to the premiere, two Dropkick Murphys’ band members will host a Q&A to answer questions from fans and discuss the new video. The Q&A will begin today (Thursday, April 15) at 5:00 PM ET / 2:00 PM PT, followed by the music video premiere at 5:45 PM ET / 2:45 PM PT, via the Dropkick Murphys YouTube channel: https://youtu.be/sB31OkEYEDc
The music video for the track was filmed in Boston by the band’s longtime friend Mark Higgins, who also directed the iconic music video for “I’m Shipping Up To Boston.”
“Queen Of Suffolk County” follows the album’s tongue-in-cheek single “Middle Finger”, which was accompanied by a Kes Glozier-directed video shot in London just before the band’s last show prior to the pandemic. Watch the “Middle Finger” video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NEqniZcaU6Y
Turn Up That Dial was produced by Ted Hutt and is available for pre-order now. With the 11 tracks on Turn Up That Dial, Dropkick Murphys celebrate the simple pleasure of music, the relief and release from worry that comes when you “turn up that dial” and blast your troubles away.
Dropkick Murphys are: Al Barr (lead vocals), Tim Brennan (guitars, tin whistle, accordion, piano, vocals), Ken Casey (lead vocals), Jeff DaRosa (guitars, banjo, mandolin, vocals), Matt Kelly (drums, percussion, vocals), James Lynch (guitars, vocals), Kevin Rheault (touring bassist) and Lee Forshner (touring bagpipe player).

About Dropkick Murphys: Dropkick Murphys proudly remain Boston’s rock ‘n’ roll underdogs turned champions. Since 1996, the boys have thrown down with the kind of rock ‘n’ roll that’s meant to be chanted at last call, in packed arenas, and during the fourth quarter, third period, or ninth inning of a comeback rally. With a celebrated discography including 2005’s gold-selling The Warrior’s Code and the near double platinum classic “I’m Shipping Up To Boston,” they’ve quietly moved 8 million-plus units worldwide. Whether you caught a legendary gig at The Rathskeller (The Rat) under Kenmore Square, found the band by taking the T to Newbury Comics to cop Do Or Die in ’98, discovered them in Martin Scorsese’s Academy Award-winning The Departed, or saw ‘em throw down at Coachella (or one of hundreds of other festivals), you’ve become a part of their extended family. Among many accolades, they’ve earned three Top 10 albums on the Billboard Top 200, generated half-a-billion streams, and sold out gigs on multiple continents. Not to mention, The Signed and Sealed in Blood standout “Rose Tattoo” graced Loudwire’s “Top 66 Best Of The Decade Rock Songs” at #21 with a bullet. Most recently, 2017’s 11 Short Stories Of Pain & Glory (released through the band’s own Born & Bred Records), bowed at #8 on the Billboard Top 200 and emerged as the #1 independently released album. In 2021, they return with a simple request on their tenth full-length album: Turn Up That Dial!
