Dropkick Murphys To Release New Album “This Machine Still Kills Fascists” In September

Dropkick Murphys will be releasing a new album, titled “This Machine Still Kills Fascists,” on September 30. The effort will feature tracks with lyrics from Woody Guthrie.

“This Machine Still Kills Fascists” Track Listing:

01. “Two 6’s Upside Down”
02. “Talking Jukebox”
03. “All You Fonies”
04. “Never Git Drunk No More” (feat. Nikki Lane)
05. “Ten Times More”
06. “The Last One” (feat. Evan Felker)
07. “Cadillac, Cadillac”
08. “Waters Are A’risin”
09. “Where Trouble Is At”
10. “Dig A Hole” (feat. Woody Guthrie)

Woody’s daughter Nora Guthrie commented:

“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.”

Guitarist James Lynch continued:

“Nora gave us the privilege of going through the archives and selecting some lyrics to use. The common thread that I see through everything was this love for people and this understanding of the universal truth that there is no one person fundamentally better than another person.”

Singer Ken Casey added:

“Woody Guthrie, he’s the original punk. He went against the grain, he fought the good fight, he spoke up and sang about his beliefs. I’m motivated by reading what he wrote and am inspired by his courage. One man and a guitar – it’s powerful stuff.”
