Dropkick Murphys Release Video for New Single, “UNTIL THE NEXT TIME”

As they prepare for the launch of their From Boston to Berkeley Tour, Dropkick Murphys released a new music video yesterday for “Until Next Time.” The single comes from the band’s most recent record, 11 Short Stories Of Pain & Glory. The song is a change of pace for the Boston punk band — a slowed down jam which evokes a closing-time bar sing-a-long among friends. The video showcases excited fans as well as fun behind the scenes clips of the band touring. A masterful kazoo solo proceeds the start of the song in the (strangely fitting) opening clip, embracing the lighthearted and intimate vibe of the song. Check out the video for Until Next Time below.

From today’s press release:

In the midst of European festivals and headlining shows, Dropkick Murphys have released a video for “Until The Next Time,” from their 11 Short Stories Of Pain & Glory album.

Dropkick Murphys’ Ken Casey explains, “The music video for ‘Until The Next Time’ was directed by our longtime friend and amazing photographer Gregory Nolan during our 11 Short Stories of Pain & Glory Tour in both Europe and the U.S. This song is about our relationship with YOU, the best fans on the planet. It’s about the memories and the great friends we’ve made along the way…about the pleasure of coming to so many cities that we feel we can almost call home, and the bittersweet moments of having to say goodbye and move on to the next town every night.”

According to drummer Matt Kelly, “Until The Next Time” is “a song about having to put the good times on hold temporarily. We were glad to come, so sad to go, so while we’re here we’ll have us a real good time! See you out on the ice!”

Gregory Nolan, tour videographer and director of the video said, “There are two kinds of shots I love with the Dropkicks: hijinks between band members and moments of connection between the band and fans. The awesome thing about putting together this music video is that I got to shape the story that puts these relationships at the center, with music as the method of connection. It’s the perfect song to celebrate the good times, and to get the sense that the friendships we share will always come back around again.”

Dropkick MurphysAl Barr, Tim Brennan, Ken Casey, Jeff DaRosa, Matt Kelly, James Lynch—return to the U.S. in July for their co-headlining From Boston To Berkeley Tour with Rancid.The month-long trek kicks off July 27 in Bangor, ME and wraps August 26 at the It’s Not Dead festival in San Bernardino, CA, near Los Angeles. Each night of the tour will culminate with Rancid and Dropkick Murphys on stage together for a joint encore.

The Bouncing Souls and Jake Burns open the July 27 – August 9 shows and The Selecter and Kevin Seconds open from August 11 – 26.

Tickets are on sale now at www.DropkickMurphys.com.

Rancid and Dropkick Murphys have a long and important history together. Back in 1997, Rancid’s Lars Frederiksen came across a copy of Dropkick Murphys’ original EP at a friend’s house. He turned it over to his bandmate and Hellcat Records president Tim Armstrong, who quickly snatched up the band for his new label.

Dropkick Murphys are touring in support of their 11 Short Stories Of Pain & Gloryalbum, released through the band’s own Born & Bred Records earlier this year. The album debuted at #8 on the Billboard Top 200 and was the #1 independently released album. There’s a feeling of purpose throughout the album, influenced by the band’s work with The Claddagh Fund, a charity the band established in 2009 to help support addiction recovery as well as children’s and veterans’ organizations. Dropkick Murphys are hands-on in raising funds, mentoring, and lending a helping hand with veterans, youth sports, and drug and alcohol rehabilitation. Many of the songs reflect these experiences, and the band’s sadness, anger and dismay at the opiate epidemic ravaging the country – in particular, Boston and New England — and also their feeling of pride and optimism at the sight of those who have turned their lives around.Dropkick Murphys have become ambassadors for their city. In Boston, it seems like everybody knows someone connected to the band whether by blood, friendship, or the time they shared a brew at a Bruins game. They’ve built a legacy that does Beantown proud.

TIMMY’S ORGANISM “Eating Colors” Album Out September 15th on DMT Records, On Tour With Black Lips This Month

Since setting the scuzz-punk gutter a blaze with the first 1997 release of the EPILEPTIX, then the increasingly influential (and downright killer) crew, the CLONE DEFECTS and HUMAN EYE!  In the last 20 years , Detroit’s TIMMY VULGAR has continued to release obscure-o, underdog music. Backed up by two mental ward escapees, Jeff Giant and Blake “Bovver” Hill, this new record is heavy and mean. Raw-as-ever acid glam, punk, psych, stomp, rock’n’roll! Aware of the evil world around them, this is the soundtrack for the apocalypse! – Eric Davidson

Sweet Crude is a young 6-piece composed of New Orleans musicians creating a sound that sets English and Louisiana’s native French dialect to decidedly non-Cajun music. The band, boasting surnames like Marceaux and Chachere, seeks to reconnect with their lineage in the context of 5-part harmonies, tribal rhythms, and pop hooks.

Sweet Crude debuted in Spring 2013 and have hit the ground running. Music from their EP Super Vilaine can be heard in FX’s American Horror Story and the band has been receiving generous amounts of plays nationally and internationally on public, satellite and internet radio.  Sweet Crude has tested their frenetic sound on the road, packing venues across the country.
