Dropkick Murphys release fan-assisted video for Rose Tattoo

Boston-based band Dropkick Murphys are excited to share their new music video for their song Rose Tattoo.The video features contributions by the band’s most devoted fans, whom the band asked to get tattoos of the new album art, and then send in videos and photos of their new ink. “Rose Tattoo” features Winston Marsalis from Mumford & Sons playing banjo.

Rose Tattoo is one of the songs off the band’s forthcoming album, Signed And Sealed In Blood, to be released January 7th via Born and Bred Records via Cooperative Music. Presale for the album will begin on November 23rd. The album is their second with producer Ted Hutt (Gaslight Anthem, Old Crow Medicine Show), which was recorded at Boston’s Q Division studios and mixed by Joe Chiccarelli (The White Stripes). “We had such a great time writing our last album, Going Out In Style, we were excited to get back into the studio right away,” says bassist and co-lead singer Ken Casey. “Where Going Out in Style was a concept album—kind of intricate and difficult—this one is catchy, fun, and as sing-along as can be.

Since they first hit the scene in 1996, the Boston seven-piece have racked up record sales in excess of 4 million worldwide and have collaborated with numerous global superstars including Bruce Springsteen (who featured on Going Out In Style).  Their smash hit single I’m Shipping Up to Boston exceeded platinum status and was featured heavily in Martin Scorsese’s Academy Award-winning film, The Departed. Their 2011 offering, Going Out In Style, debuted in the Billboard Top 10 at #6, marking the band’s highest chart entry to date and heralding the continued success of their independent label Born & Bred Records. The band now sell out shows worldwide and have cultivated one of the most fervent fan bases in rock music.
