Dropkick Murphys

Some songs are timeless. We can all think of songs that fit every era, every life event. Tear jerkers and kids’ songs, thought provokers and rally
cries. But what about lyrics that were written about the people and issues of the author’s time – then put away, never to be seen until almost
a century later, when a band pulled them out of the archive and were floored by how vividly those lyrics describe the news of their day?
There’s an answer to that question – and it’s contained on This Machine Still Kills Fascists.

In the 10 songs that make up this album, Dropkick
Murphys bring Woody Guthrie’s perennial jabs at life – many of which are from the 1940s and ‘50s – into the time of their lives. The resulting music is eerily relevant to today’s world. And they’ve done it all without their usual arsenal of electric guitars. In fact, not a single amplifier was used to animate Woody’s words in these songs.

But make no mistake: this is Not your grandfather’s folk album. DKM harnessed all of their trademark power to craft these songs and bring

Woody’s lyrics to life.
