Dropkick Murphys Debuts ‘H.B.D.M.F.’ Video

Dropkick Murphys kicked off the weekend with a new music video.

The band debuted the video for its latest single, ‘H.B.D.M.F.’ Friday. The song is the latest single from the band’s latest album, Turn Up That Dial, which was released April 30 through the band’s own label, Born & Bred Records.

The premiere of ‘H.B.D.M.F.’ follows that of the album’s other singles, ‘Middle Finger,‘  ‘Smash S*** Up,’ ‘Mick Jones Nicked My Pudding,’ and ‘I Wish You Were Here.’ The musical arrangement featured in ‘H.B.D.M.F.’ is a gentle ballad type song that the band’s established audiences will find quite familiar, even with its own unique identity. It is one of those songs that will have audiences clasping one another’s shoulders, singing in unison, as they sway back and forth to the music.

The video for ‘H.B.D.M.F.’ finds the band singing its new single on a stage in front of an audience of puppets. Many of those puppets are figures that audiences might recognize from Dropkick Murphys’ recent livestream event, Dropkick Murphys St. Patrick’s Day Stream 2021…Still Locked Down, and from the album release party for Turn Up That Dial.

Dropkick Murphys founder and co-vocalist Ken Casey talked about the video’s creation during a recent interview.

“We had to learn to get creative making videos during the COVID restrictions,” he said. “We had to think outside the box, but it led to some really hilarious stuff like this video.”

In other news, Dropkick Murphys is gearing up for a tour with Rancid. The tour, dubbed the “Boston To Berkeley Tour II”, is scheduled to launch Aug. 10 and to run through Oct. 16. The tour’s schedule is noted below.
