Dropkick Murphys Debuts ‘Good As Gold’ Video; Band Announces Addition Of Jesse Ahern To Lineup For Upcoming Tour

Dec. 8 — Dropkick Murphys premiered the video for its latest single this week.

The band debuted the video for its new single, ‘Good As Gold.’ The song and its video are the sixth from the band’s most recent album, Turn Up That Dial. The record has also produced the singles, ‘H.B.D.M.F.,’ ‘Middle Finger,‘  ‘Smash S*** Up,’ ‘Mick Jones Nicked My Pudding,’ and ‘I Wish You Were Here.’

The musical arrangement featured in ‘Good As Gold’ is, like those of the album’s other singles, everything that audiences have come to expect from Dropkick Murphys. The bagpipes are there complete with all of the band’s familiar punk stylings.

Co-vocalist Ken Casey talked about the song’s lyrical theme in a prepared statement.

‘Good as Gold,’ celebrates the music that shaped the band. It’s about the precious vinyl albums we all listen to, collect, and cherish – and the video shows how that music connects fans through generations,” he said.  “It’s about the important role music has played in our lives. The outside world may be going on. Boom, you put your headphones on, drop the needle, and nothing else matters. It’s about how much hope I’ve gotten from music, all of the inspiration, and the way it’s helped me take my frustrations out.”

That lyrical theme plays directly into the song’s video treatment as a young man is shown discovering some of the great music of the past for the first time on vinyl. Along the way, he gets to meet the band and even go for a ride with the guys.

In other news, Dropkick Murphys will bring back its annual St. Patrick’s Day Tour next year. The band announced through a news release Wednesday, it has added Jesse Ahern as support for the upcoming tour. Ahern will join The Bombpops and The Rumjacks as support on various dates.
