Boston-based rock band The Dropkick Murphys are excited to release their new studio album SIGNED and SEALED in BLOOD, out today via Born and Bred Records. 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."

Dropkick Murphys will be supporting the new album with their 2013 "St. Patrick's Day Tour," which will begin on February 21 in Cleveland, OH and concluding with three dates in their hometown of Boston, MA including the fulfillment of the band's career-long dream of headlining the Boston Garden, now known as TD Garden on March 15. The Garden show will be billed as "Dropkick Murphys Irish Festival," with bands and attractions on two stages. The entire tour will have an epic finale on St. Patrick's Day (March 17) at The House of Blues on Boston's famed Lansdowne Street. For a full itinerary please see below.
