Dropkick Murphys have announced that they will release their new album, This Machine Still Kills Fascists, on CD and colored vinyl on the 30th September. This Machine Still Kills Fascists is an acoustic album written around previously unpublished lyrics by Woody Guthrie. The album’s lead single and video, Two 6’s, Upside Down, will be released on the 6th July and the band have shared a trailer from the documentary about the making of This Machine Still Kills Fascists. Dropkick Murphys have also announced their first ever US acoustic theatre tour which is set to take place later this year.

“Woody Guthrie embodies the spirit of true rebellion. Always one to stand up for the working man, and to fight the good fight against fascism. As his famous guitar so boldly declared – This Machine Still Kills Fascists… And this isn’t our first collaboration with him. Back in 2004, we found an unpublished lyric in Woody’s archives called “Shipping Up To Boston,” and turned that into a song you may know… With Al Barr on hiatus, the rest of us wanted to record, but not do a typical DKM album without him…so we figured this was the perfect time to reconnect with Woody’s words. And we can’t wait for you to hear it.”

“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.” (Nora Guthrie)
