DROPKICK MURPHYS
TV TAKEOVER:

'CONAN' PERFORMANCE
SET FOR OCTOBER 13;

DKM ON FUEL-TV 'THE DAILY HABIT'
OCTOBER 11 AND OCTOBER 14

Dropkick Murphys are set to bookend their previously announced October 13 performance on Conan (TBS, 11pm PDT/EDT, 10pm CDT) with a pair of appearances on Fuel-TV's The Daily Habit Tuesday, October 11 and Friday, October 14.

The Tuesday, October 11 show will feature Dropkick Murphys performing "Going Out In Style" — a rousing, celebratory tale of an Irish wake as seen through the eyes of the deceased — from their critically acclaimed CD of the same name (Born & Bred Records). The October 14 episode of the The Daily Habit will include a performance of the band's signature hit "I'm Shipping Up To Boston." The Daily Habit premieres at 11pm ET/8pm PT each night, with additional airings to follow.

Dropkick Murphys' television performances come in the midst of a brief run of west coast dates at the House of Blues in San Diego (October 11-12), the Hard Rock Casino in Las Vegas (October 14) and The Palladium in Los Angeles (October 15). Immediately following this west coast swing, the band heads to Australia for a week of tour dates.

Dropkick Murphys recently headlined a pair of sold out shows (10,000 people per night) on September 8 and 9 at Boston's Fenway Park, earning rave reviews.

"Dropkick Murphys transformed hallowed ground into a hell of a time," wrote the Boston Globe's Scott McLennan of the Fenway shows.

"Wicked awesome punk rock," added Jed Gottlieb of the Boston Herald. "These guys always have been legit and proved it again last night. Their politics are punk — 'Take 'Em Down' is a Clash-style union rally cry. And when they unload their blitzing, blistering rock 'n' roll, as they did on 'The State of Massachusetts,' they're as good as anybody in the genre ever."
