Boston punks Dropkick Murphys have announced their ninth full length album, 11 Short Stories of Pain and Glory, will be released on the band’s own Born and Bred label on Friday January 6.

 Let’s all hear it for the unbelievable writing talents of the almighty Glenn Stewart filling in for me while I was at Riot Fest in Chicago. The level of trash talking and bullshit artistry was absolutely flawless and I can’t think of a better person who could have filled in. Onya m8.
