Duesenberg Unveils the Alliance Dropkick Murphys Series

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!

On the Tuareg band’s Funeral for Justice, they light a fiery, mournful pyre of razor-sharp desert-blues riffs and political calls to arms.

Mdou Moctar, the performing moniker of Tuareg guitar icon Mahamadou “Mdou” Souleymane, has played some pretty big gigs. Alongside guitarist Ahmoudou Madassane, drummer Souleymane Ibrahim, and bassist Mikey Coltun, Moctar has led his band’s kinetic blend of rock, psych, and Tuareg cultural traditions like assouf and takamba to Newport Folk Festival, Pitchfork Music Festival, and, just this past April, to the luxe fields of Indio, California, for Coachella. Off-kilter indie-rock darlings Parquet Courts brought them across the United States in 2022, after which they hit Europe for a run of headline dates.
