Have you ever seen a hockey puck used as a certificate of authenticity?

Hannover, Germany (March 12, 2019) -- For the past 22 years, Boston punk band Dropkick Murphys have tirelessly toured the United States, Europe, and the rest of the world. With their blend of classic punk rock, Irish folk, and American rock ‘n roll, the band has worked its way up from a barbershop basement in their hometown to crowds of 80,000+ at festivals around the globe.

Boston calling! Together with the Boston punk band Dropkick Murphys, Duesenberg has launched a new Alliance Series 2019 in 2019. The Alliance Dropkick Murphys Series consists of a guitar model and right and left hand basses, which are released worldwide in a strictly limited edition of only 96 pieces all together.

Iván Carranza was the first to lay his hands on the Dropkick Murphys bass and made a fine video of this meeting! Of course, he also introduces the exclusive Goodie package that comes with each of these instruments. Have you ever seen an ice hockey puck as a certificate of authenticity? No? Then watch the video!

Melodies, hooks, clean tones, and no guitar solos. Are we sure this Elliott Smith fan fronts a doom-metal band? (We’re sure!)

Legend has it the name Monolord refers to a friend of the band with the same moniker who lost hearing in his left ear, and later said it didn’t matter if the band recorded anything in stereo, because he could not hear it anyway. It’s a funny, though slightly tragic, bit of backstory, but that handle is befitting in yet another, perhaps even more profound, way. Doom and stoner metal are arguably the torch-bearing subgenres for hard rock guitar players, and if any band seems to hold the keys to the castle at this moment, it’s Monolord.
