Dropkick Murphys Released New Single And Video
Dropkick Murphys released their new single and video “Smash Sh*t Up” today. “Smash Sh*t Up” is available digitally and on limited edition colored vinyl paired with B-side “The Bonny,” a cover of Scottish singer-songwriter Gerry Cinnamon’s 2019 song. Both songs are available on streaming platforms worldwide (https://dropkick.ffm.to/smashshitup), with vinyl offered in the Dropkick Murphys webstore, and at the band’s upcoming tour dates, while supplies last.
