Kelttipunkin konkarilta Dropkick Murphysilta uusi albumi huhtikuussa: ensimmäinen single ”Middlfe Finger” kuunneltavissa

Aktiivisesti keikkailevana bändinä tunnettu, yhdysvaltalainen kelttipunkin konkari on julkaisemassa järjestyksessään kymmenennen albuminsa nimeltä ”Turn Up That Dial” huhtikuun 30. päivä. Yhtyeen tulevalta albumilta on nyt julkaistu ensimmäinen single nimeltä ”Middle Finger”, ja voit kuunnella sen tästä:

Yhtyeen perustaja ja laulaja Ken Casey on kertonut albumista seuraavaa:

”On this record, the overall theme is the importance of music, and the bands that made us who we are.

We just hope [the album] takes people’s minds off their troubles. We’re so fortunate and grateful to be in the position to share a little happiness in our own way. Our gratitude levels are off the chart. 25 years ago, somebody bet me 30 bucks I couldn’t form a band with three weeks’ notice to open for his band. As kids, we’d never been out of New England and here we are – we’ve made ten records and have been all over the globe. If there’s a message to this album, it’s ‘put your fist up and play it loud.’”

Middle Finger” -kappaleen lyriikat:

I keep my fist raised time full time against the world
Sometimes with the family and sometimes with a girl
Yeah, you think I’ve learned my lesson, I’m a man who’s been around
But I could never keep that middle finger down
Well, I’m still hanging on and I think [?] fools
I broke a lotta hearts and I broke a lotta rules
Yet somehow I survived with a bit of dummy luck
But I could never keep that finger from sticking up

I could never keep, I could never keep
I could never keep my life from burning to the ground
You think I’ve learned my lesson, I’m a man who’s been around
But I could never keep that middle finger down

I’m a grudge-holding jerk who starts feuds with a wink
A sharp-tongued SOB who speaks the boring things
I’ve learned from my losses and I know when I’m wrong
Still, my life’s sadder than an old country song

I could never keep, I could never keep
I could never keep my life from burning to the ground
You think I’ve learned my lesson, I’m a man who’s been around
But I could never keep that middle finger down

So if you looked at my life, if you took a little peak
You’d say, ”Good Lord, let it go, man, just turn the other cheek”
I don’t know how to let it go, I just don’t know how to behave
I was born with this affliction and I’ll take it to the grave

I could never keep, I could never keep
I could never keep my life from burning to the ground
You think I’ve learned my lesson, I’m a man who’s been around
But I could never keep that middle finger down
I could never keep (no), I could never keep (no)
I could never keep my life from burning to the ground
You think I’ve learned my lesson, I’m a man who’s been around
But I could never keep that middle finger down
