Dropkick Murphys will be joined by special guests State Radio at their March 17 St. Patrick's Day matinee show at Tsongas Arena in Lowell, MA, marking State Radio's only confirmed 2012 East Coast date thus far. The 1pm St. Patrick's Day show will also feature an acoustic performance by Frank Turner (solo), as well as Australian openers Ramshackle Army. The 7pm St. Patrick's Day show at Tsongas Arena will include Frank Turner and the Sleeping Souls supporting Dropkick Murphys.

Massachusetts-based State Radio is currently promoting their new single "Roadway Broken"—written in the wake of the 2010 Haitian earthquake to raise money and awareness for Haitian earthquake relief—and will release a new album in 2012. For more information, go to www.stateradio.com.

In other news, Dropkick Murphys will release the Going Out In Style: Fenway Park Bonus Edition CD—an expanded version of the critically acclaimed Going Out In Style—on the band-owned Born & Bred Records March 13 (one week later than previously announced). The Fenway Park Bonus Edition includes the Live From Fenway bonus disc, recorded on September 8 and 9 in front of 20,000 Dropkick Murphys fans at the band's sold out headlining dates at Boston's legendary ballpark. The bonus edition includes a download of the filmed concert at Fenway Park as well as—for the first time—the complete story of Cornelius Larkin by the band's friend and best-selling author Michael Patrick MacDonald (All Souls, Easter Rising). The Cornelius Larkin story is an expansion of MacDonald's Cornelius Larkin obituary that appears in the original Going Out In Style liner notes. The newly revealed cover art for the Going Out In Style: Fenway Park Bonus Edition is shown below:
