The Dropkick Murphys' seventh album Going Out In Style is the story of Cornelius, an Irish immigrant in America. The record begins with the character's raucous Irish wake and then flashes back to the beginning of his story, covering all the major moments in his extraordinary life along the way. That may sound a bit dry, but the music itself is exactly the sort of high-energy sing-along punk fans have come to expect from this long-running Boston band. You can hear for yourself in this exclusive stream of the album's first single, "Memorial Day."
