Formed in the basement of a friends barbershop the groups influences come from bands like Stiff Little Fingers, The Pogues, Thin Lizzy, The Dubliners and The Clash. Their goal was to blend these influences into loud, raucous, chaotic mix of their own.

Dropkick Murphys come out swinging with their 6th studio album “The Meanest Of Times” a collection of tales about family, loyalty and remembering where you came from. “The Meanest Of Times” contains all the best elements of the DKM sound: a complex distillation of classic punk rock, Celtic folk and American rock’n’roll, this album puts the band’s diversity, intensity and sincerity on full display.

Tickets are on sale from this Saturday 12 December at 9am from usual Ticketmaster outlets.
