Through 21 Years And 9 Albums, Dropkick Murphys 'Tried To Stay Exactly What We Are' - WBUR

Monday, April 03, 2017

St. Patrick’s Day shows in Boston — March 15-17 at the House of Blues, March 18 at Agganis Arena and March 19, a final small club (read: very hard to get tickets) show at Brighton Music Hall -- they’ll have new material. Of the approximate 26 songs they’ll do in 90 minutes, nine will come from “11 Short Stories.” But as the band does multiple hometown shows, they like to rejigger their set lists. Their last tour dates are in Boston and, as Casey says, they’ve been rehearsing buried old tunes and can pick from anywhere in their catalog.The band formed 21 years ago and Casey is the sole remaining founder. Co-lead singer Al Barr replaced singer Mike McColgan, who now sings in Street Dogs, in 1998.“11 Short Stories” is a strong, hook-packed album, perhaps a little less Celtic-flavored than before, with more space in the sound. “We tried to take a less-is-more approach on this,” says Casey. “Sometimes we’re guilty of wanting to have something going on at every spot. The best way to make something sound big is to make it sound sparse before it gets big, so that was a new approach for us as well.”After what Casey calls “the spontaneous spark” of “You’ll Never Walk Alone,” the songwriting fire was lit. First, says Casey, came "Paying My Way," sung in unison by Barr and Casey, which is "just about picking yourself up and doing the next right thing: You’re down and out and you’re looking at life. 'How do I get out of this rabbit hole where my life has gone because of this addiction?' "[embedded content]“Rebels with a Cause,” sung by Barr, Casey says “is about a specific couple — when one gets clean and the other doesn’t, and they take each other down and people eventually give up on ‘em. I’ve seen people who went to rehab 30, 40 times and on the 41st time they get it. You can never write someone off. With addiction — even with the crazy amount of death that’s happening — people feel it’s not something they could catch walking down the street, that it’s something these people did to themselves. Maybe you can think that way, maybe you can’t, but what if it’s your child that has that problem?”It’s serious stuff and Dropkick Murphys have dealt with tough topics like this for years. Yet, the band is one of the most rousing, aggressive good-time bands to ever come out of Boston.“That’s a little bit the nature of Irish music,” says Casey. “You might have a sad song and people sing it like it’s a...
