    Two of the biggest forces in modern punk rock, Dropkick Murphy's and Alkaline Trio will unite for a huge tour down under in November. Dropkick Murphy's will headline the tour. It will be the band's first headline tour of Australia in over a decade and their first visit of any kind since 2018's Good Things Festival

    The tour which is presented by Destroy All Lines,  will kick off at AEC Theatre in Adelaide on Friday 15 November before it makes its way to The Forum in Melbourne, Sydney's Roundhouse before closing out the Australian run at Fortitude Music Hall in Brisbane on Friday 22 November.  Tickets will be available to the general public on Thursday 4 July at 9 am local time, with a presale available on Tuesday 2 July at 9 am local time. Fans can register for the presale here

    Since breaking out in 1996, Dropkick Murphy's have created the kind of music that’s meant to be chanted at last call, in packed arenas, and during the fourth quarter, third period, or ninth inning of a comeback rally. Their celebrated discography includes four consecutive Billboard Top 10 album debuts (Turn Up That Dial, 11 Short Stories Of Pain & Glory, Signed and Sealed in Blood, Going Out In Style), along with 2005’s Certified-Gold album The Warrior’s Code featuring the double-platinum classic I’m Shipping Up To Boston. Dropkick  Murphy's music has generated half a billion streams, they’ve quietly moved 8 million-plus units worldwide and the band has sold out gigs on multiple continents. 



    In more than 25 years together, Alkaline Trio have delivered urgent punk blasts with a dark, driving edge that helped them remain commercially viable without sacrificing their raucous spirit and created their own little universe in their songs with a few short steps away from armageddon. Their music has been a reliable black mirror of reality. Slowly ascending through the Warped Tour ranks into the early 2000s, they reached the Billboard Top 20 with 2003's mainstream breakthrough Good Mourning. They hit a peak with their seventh set This Addiction, which topped the US rock, alternative, and indie charts in 2010.

    They kicked off the year with the release of their monumental tenth album, Blood, Hair, and Eyeballs. It’s been five years since the beloved punk stalwarts have released an album and to commemorate hitting the big ten milestone, they went back to basics stripping their sound down to the bare essentials of the sonic identity that endeared them to a generation of punk fans. 

    They enlisted Grammy-winning producer Cameron Webb and spent several weeks holed up at Studio 606 in Northridge, California, the private recording space owned by Dave Grohl and Foo Fighters.  With more than two decades and ten records under their belts, Alkaline Trio's legacy in the rock canon, as well as their influence on their genre, is undeniable.
