The Dropkick Murphys are getting into the Christmas spirit with the release of a brand new music video for the song “The Season’s Upon Us.” The video was #1 at MTV.com the other day, which raises questions, MTV is still around and they actually played music (even though it was on their website?). The video is really funny and seems like it was written by Denis Leary. The video is worth watching, especially if you like the band and want to get into the Xmas spirit.
The video features a ramshackle approach to the wild-side of the Holiday season, with crazy family members and mayhem, all punctuated by the band’s signature style of rock and singular wit. “The Season’s Upon Us” is available NOW via iTunes.
“The Season’s Upon Us” will be a bonus track available on the iTunes deluxe edition of band’s new studio album SIGNED and SEALED in BLOOD, to be released January 8th via Born and Bred Records. The album is their second with producer Ted Hutt (Gaslight Anthem, Old Crow Medicine Show), which was recorded at Boston’s Q Division studios and mixed by Joe Chiccarelli (The White Stripes). “We had such a great time writing our last album, Going Out In Style, we were excited to get back into the studio right away,” says bassist and co-lead singer Ken Casey. “Where Going Out in Style was a concept album-kind of intricate and difficult-this one is catchy, fun, and as sing-along as can be.”
