Dropkick Murphys have released a new video for the single “Two 6’s Upside Down,” off the upcoming acoustic album release, This Machine Still Kills Fascists
The Dropkick Murphys and their longtime producer Ted Hutt recorded the album at The Church Studio in Tulsa, just a few minutes from Woody Guthrie’s birthplace and the modern-day Woody Guthrie Center.
The historic studio was founded by Leon Russell and was the original location of legendary Shelter Records. During the album sessions, Dropkick Murphys made a point to visit Woody’s hometown of Okemah and walk the same streets Woody walked.Retreating to Woody’s home state of Oklahoma to record the album had a powerful effect on the band and the creative process behind these songs.
Ultimately, Dropkick Murphys had so much material based on Woody’s poignant lyrics that they recorded two albums, with Vol. 2 scheduled for release in 2023.
