The video was released in advance of new album & upcoming Boston blowout shows.
Do you really need a reason to break stuff? Of course not, but the experience will be much more cathartic when paired with some of the Dropkick Murphys' working-class punk rock.
Ken Casey and the boys from Boston are back with the song "Smash Sh*t Up," longing for the days of "owing people money and causing others harm" -- you know, typical teenage stuff, "being a rebel and smashing sh*t up." In the video, Casey, Al Barr, James Lynch, Tim Brennan and Jeff DaRosa take to a house with sledgehammers, baseball bats and pickaxes before Casey jumps behind the controls of a backhoe and rips the place down. The video was directed and edited by Chris Friend with a concept by Casey, shot on location in Boston using all local camera operators.
The song is Dropkick Murphys at their best, hammering drums and guitar coupled with a call-and-response chorus and salty lyrics that make for a perfect three-pints deep sing-along anthem.
