They’ve been around for years, but now, again, they’ve called up Woody Guthrie into a new album: Dropkick MurphysThis Machine Still Kills Fascists

Sounds like a much needed album in these times.

Nora Guthrie added, “I collected lyrics on all kinds of topics…lyrics that seemed to be needed to be said – or screamed – today. Ken Casey is a master at understanding Woody’s lyrics, which can be complicated, long, deadly serious, or totally ridiculous. DKM is capable of delivering them all.”

Looking forward to the album release, and perhaps a few more bands who start writing and singing songs of our country as free and for all, as Woody Guthrie did.
