As Dropkick Murphys near the end of a hugely successful European tour and prepare for the March 1 launch of their U.S. St. Patrick’s Day Tour that will feature fully electric rock shows, the band has released a compelling video for “Never Git Drunk No More,” a duet with DKM’s Ken Casey and acclaimed alt country singer-songwriter Nikki Lane. Lane will perform the song live with Dropkick Murphys on March 16 in Boston where she’ll join Dropkick Murphys on the bill.
Watch the Mike Rivkees-directed “Never Git Drunk No More” video below.
Ken Casey said, “It was a pleasure to have Nikki Lane in Boston to make this music video. Some songs call for videos more than others, and to me, ‘Never Git Drunk No More’ is one of those songs. I think it really comes to life through the video.”
Nikki Lane said, “It is an honor to be able to sing with the Dropkick Murphys on a legendary record of Woody Guthrie songs – took a trip up to Boston to join Ken and the boys for this fun video.”
“Never Git Drunk No More” is the final release from the group’s “This Machine Still Kills Fascists” album, a collaboration between Dropkick Murphys and Woody Guthrie – artists separated by time and space, but connected by a common philosophy. Dropkick Murphys also recently released a digital expanded edition of “This Machine Still Kills Fascists”, which features three live versions of songs on the original release and two alternate song versions.
Details about Dropkick Murphys’ second collaborative album with Woody Guthrie lyrics will be revealed soon.
Dropkick Murphys kick off their annual run of St. Patrick’s Day rock shows on March 1 with The Rumjacks and Jesse Ahern opening most dates.
