Read more: Dropkick Murphys’ new album lands at No. 8
It's very possible that if it wasn't for Rancid, we never would have had Dropkick Murphys. In 1997, Rancid’s Lars Frederiksen came across a copy of Dropkick Murphys’ original EP at a friend's house. He turned it over to his bandmate and Hellcat Records president Tim Armstrong, who quickly snatched up the band for his new label and the rest is history.
Dropkick Murphys' ninth album 11 Short Stories Of Pain & Glory, released through the band's label Born & Bred, debuted at No. 8 on the Billboard 200.
Dropkick Murphys’ Ken Casey remarked, “This is a dream come true for Dropkick Murphys. Hopefully all the people coming to the shows will feel the same way. Rancid gave us our break – Tim signing us to his label, Lars producing our early albums…so much history and great memories. Now, literally sharing the stage together every night. This tour is going to destroy all others this summer!!!!”
Rancid will also be releasing their ninth album this year. Their last album, ...Honor Is All We Know, was released back in 2014 and peaked at No. 20 on the Billboard 200.
“It's a long time coming with these two bands touring together. There is so much history between both of us that it should make for a great tour. We look forward to seeing all of our friends and family out there,” said Rancid's Lars Frederiksen.
These legendary bands will be supported by The Bouncing Souls, The Selecter, Kevin Seconds and Jake Burns. The Bouncing Souls and Jake Burns open the July 27 – August 9 shows while The Selecter and Kevin Seconds will open from August 11 – 26.
