When The Summer Comes Around!
As another Scottish summer approaches, we’re packing our sun cream, tents and umbrellas and are heading out on the road north to play some shows. We’re delighted to be travelling with our old friends, Attic Lights from Glasgow. 10 years ago Dropkick and Attic Lights played some of our first shows together around the country in an often ramshackle, but very enjoyable tour and we’re very much looking forward to spending time again with one of our favourite bands.
Here are the dates:
- Thu 16th July – Twa Tams, Perth 8pm
- Fri 17th July – Mad Hatter’s@ Hootananny, Inverness 9pm
- Sat 18th July – The Greenshouse, Dingwall (acoustic afternoon gig 2pm)
- Sat 18th July – The Arch Inn, Ullapool 9pm
- Fri 31st July – Sneaky Pete’s, Edinburgh 7pm
These are likely to be our last shows of the year as we continue to promote our two most recent releases, ‘Homeward’ and the compilation album, ‘Good Vibes: The Dropkick Songbook Vol.1’. To help you avoid the summertime blues, we have a scorching July sale at the moment with 40% off ALL Dropkick CDs, Downloads and Vinyl. Just visit our shop and use the code ‘summer’ to redeem the discount.
The next album is almost written and we’re looking forward to recording some new songs at Dropkick HQ in the coming months with a 2016 release already pencilled in.
In the meantime, we recorded part of a recent rehearsal to share with you. Here are a few songs from the ‘Homeward’ album. As ever, please help us spread the word about the band via twitter, facebook and youtube. We really value your ongoing support and very look forward to seeing some of you this Summer.
Andrew, Mike, Ian, Scott and Roy
