Irish punk rock band Dropkick Murphys are set to release their newest album Signed and Sealed in Blood January 8 of next year. These boys from Boston have set the anticipation for the record releasing the lead single off the album titled “Rose Tattoo” on Wednesday.
This will be the band’s eighth studio album. The video for “Rose Tattoo” displays the men of the band sitting around a table playing cards, playing instruments, drinking and smoking, and of course snapshots of the band's fans, hometown, and tattoos. This song shows a deeper side of the band.
Bassist/singer Ken Casey told Rolling Stone, “The lyrics and story of this song document important moments, milestones and people in my life as shown through the tattoos on my body. To do a video that also has photos and images of the band's fans who wear our mark for life adds even more emotion and meaning to the video for us."
The band is excited about the album as well. Ken Casey released on the Dropkick Murphys site, “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.” This is comparing Signed and Sealed in Blood and their previous album Going Out In Style.
Look for a big year from the Dropkick Murphys with the release of Signed and Sealed in Blood and winter tour dates already announced.
