Dropkick Murphys Release Music Video For “Good As Gold”

Dropkick Murphys have just released a music video for “Good As Gold” from their Turn Up That Dial album. The clip was directed by Dave Staubleof Punchdance Studios and includes an up-close-and-personal DKM performance, along with a brief cameo by the beloved puppets of Punchdance Studios.

Good As Gold” celebrates the music that shaped the band. It’s about the precious vinyl albums we all listen to, collect, and cherish – and the video shows how that music connects fans through generations. Co-lead vocalist Ken Casey explains, “It’s about the important role music has played in our lives. The outside world may be going on. Boom, you put your headphones on, drop the needle, and nothing else matters. It’s about how much hope I’ve gotten from music, all of the inspiration, and the way it’s helped me take my frustrations out.”

Dropkick Murphys recently announced the return of their traditional St. Patrick’s Day Tour for 2022 and have now expanded the lineup to include Boston-based Jesse Ahern opening each show. As previously announced, the month-long trek kicks off February 21, culminating with the band’s customary run of St. Patrick’s Day week hometown shows in Boston, and will also feature support acts The Bombpops and The Rumjacks on most dates. Jim Lindberg of Pennywise is confirmed as a special guest for the final show on March 20 at Roadrunner (Boston’s newest concert venue), performing in support of his recently released Ted Hutt-produced solo album Songs From the Elkhorn Trail.
