Dropkick Murphys put down their acoustic guitars and return to the road this fall for a run of full electric shows, joined by The Interrupters and opener Jesse Ahern. The tour kicks off September 27 at the Maine Savings Amphitheatre in Bangor, Maine. Tickets for all shows go on sale Friday, May 19 at 10:00 AM local time at www.dropkickmurphys.com and wearetheinterrupters.com.

Dropkick Murphys are plugging back in after a pair of acoustic albums – 2022’s critically acclaimed This Machine Still Kills Fascists and the just-released Okemah Rising – interpreting the work of Woody Guthrie for a new generation. The albums, recorded in Tulsa with trusted collaborator and producer Ted Hutt, exposed the band to new audiences through airplay on stations like SiriusXM’s Outlaw Country, coverage in outlets such as Rolling Stone CountryPaste, CNN, Americana Highways and SPIN, and via Dropkick Murphys’ first-ever acoustic, reserved-seating theater tour in 2022.

The Interrupters released their fourth studio album, In The Wild – which has been regarded as “the best songs the Interrupters have ever written…beyond even the incredible candor is an ambitious musicality” (Alternative Press) – in August 2022.

Roots rocker Jesse Ahern will release his Ted Hutt-produced debut album Roots Rock Rebel – featuring the lead single “Pray” — on Dropkick Murphys’ Dummy Luck record label / [PIAS] on September 15.
