Dropkick Murphys Get Mean
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. The album features guest appearances by Spider Stacey of The Pogues and Ronnie Drew of The Dubliners. TMoT was recorded at The Outpost in Stoughton, MA and produced by the Dropkick Murphys. The guest vocals were recorded at Westland Studios in Dublin by Dave Slevin.
The last Dropkick Murphys studio album The Warrior's Code has shipped over 200,000 copies and the band has a catalogue history of more than 1.5 million in sales in the US. Consolidating this strong sales history with digital single sales of 250,000 for the track "I'm Shipping Up To Boston" which was the title track in Martin Scorsese's Academy Award winning film "The Departed".
