Dropkick Murphys announce their fall 2019, coast-to-coast US tour with Clutch, beginning September 20th at the MassMutual Center in Springfield, Massachusetts. Joining for most dates will be Hatebreed, along with special guests Amigo the Devil and Russ Rankin of Good Riddance for select dates. The trek will end at the WAMU Theater in Seattle, Washington, on October 15th. Tickets for most dates go on sale Thursday (April 18th, 2019).
The seven million album-selling Dropkick Murphys will be touring in support of their latest record, ’11 Short Stories of Pain & Glory,’ released through their own label, Born & Bred Records. The 2017 LP debuted at #8 on the Billboard Top 200 and was the #1 independently released album. Since their inception in 1996, Boston’s Dropkick Murphys have gone on to host sold out concerts at most of their hometown’s landmarks including Fenway Park, TD Garden, the Boston Pops, and the last voyage of the USS Constitution.
Veteran hard rockers, Clutch, who have been dubbed everything from blues rock to alternative metal can be best described as the quintessential American rock band. The Maryland quartet will be touring in support of their 12th album ‘Book of Bad Decisions’ released last year. Known for their relentless touring schedules, Clutch have played everywhere from West Virginia dives to the iconic O2 Academy Brixton in the UK.
Connecticut metal-infused hardcore juggernauts Hatebreed have shared the stage over the years with the likes of Slipknot and Slayer, as well as performed as top-tier headliners on major festivals including Ozzfest, Mayhem, Vans Warped Tour, and more. The Grammy-nominated veterans are currently celebrating 25 years in the scene.
In addition to the upcoming run, Dropkick Murphys’ fall festival stops include the See.Hear.Now Festival in Asbury Park, New Jersey and Louder Than Life in Louisville, Kentucky in September.
