Folk punk in Amsterdam

Dropkick Murphys are a band that need no introduction in the world of rock. Their unique sound combines elements of hardcore punk and folk music, so expect speedy guitar riffs, bagpipes and catchy Irish-inspired melodies. The band reached mainstream success in 2004, and their 2005 Platinum-selling single, 'I'm Shipping up to Boston', was even featured in Academy Award-winning movie 'The Departed'. With the band due to release two new albums in 2017 – that's right, two – fans will hopefully be able to hear some new material this January.
