Massachusetts celtic punk legends Dropkick Murphys have shared their new song, “Queen of Suffolk County,” which you can stream below. The track is from the band’s upcoming ‘Turn Up That Dial’ album, which is due out on April 30th through the band’s own Born & Bred Records (pre-order).
A press release states: “The track opens with a newscaster introducing the “Queen Of Suffolk County” as co-lead vocalist Ken Casey recounts the exploits of a knife-toting local femme fatale, advising, “You best stay out of her way. She don’t joke, and she don’t play.” Look for a video for the spirited new track later this month.”
The presser adds: ““Queen Of Suffolk County” follows the album’s tongue-in-cheek single “Middle Finger”, which was recently released, accompanied by a Kes Glozier-directed video shot in London just before the band’s last show prior to the pandemic.”
