Dropkick Murphys
Team with NHL For “Paying My Way” Video
Song Available With Pre-Orders Of Upcoming
11 Short Stories Of Pain & Glory
Out January 6
Dropkick Murphys have joined forces
with the NHL to create a video for “Paying My Way,” a song off their
upcoming album 11 Short Stories Of Pain & Glory, which will
be released on January 6th through their label Born & Bred Records. The
song is available with pre-orders for the upcoming album, which was included in
Stereogum‘s “Most Anticipated Albums Of 2017.” 
The video combines recent NHL clips with those from decades gone
by, from hard hitting action on the ice to quiet locker room scenes underpinned
with the foot stomping, anthemic “Paying My Way.”
Paying My Way is not just about paying your bills,”
explains Dropkick Murphys founder/lead singer Ken Casey. “It’s
about doing what you have to do in order to be a good person. But at the end of
the day, never losing sight of the fact that doing the next right thing may
lead to great things one day.”

Dropkick Murphys History

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. Since their 1996
formation, they’ve sold a staggering 4 million albums worldwide with 2005’s The
Warrior’s Code
achieving an RIAA Gold certification and its smash single
“I’m Shipping Up To Boston” nearing double platinum and appearing
during a key moment of Martin Scorsese’s Academy Award-winning The Departed.
Most recently, 2013’s Signed And Sealed In Blood netted their second consecutive
Top 10 debut on the Billboard Top 200, and debuted at number 6 in Germany. The
album spawned standout tracks “The Boys Are Back,” “Out Of Our
Heads,” “Prisoner’s Song,” and “Rose Tattoo,” a fan
favorite that has accumulated 24 million views on YouTube — without the aid of
being a radio hit. A special version of this song featuring the band’s buddy
Bruce Springsteen was released as a benefit for the Boston Marathon bombing
victims. They’ve hosted sold out concerts at most of the city’s landmarks,
including Fenway Park, TD Garden, the Boston Pops, and even the last voyage of
the USS Constitution. They updated the Boston Red Sox anthem “Tessie”
in 2004, which may or may not have had something to do with the team’s first
World Series win in 86 years…
