jukebox NEW YORK CITY -- Celtic rockers Dropkick Murphys ninth album with 11 highly anticipated tracks is exclusively available on TouchTunes five days before its official release on Jan. 7, 2017.

"11 Short Stories of Pain & Glory" is Dropkick Murphys' first studio album in three years. The album was influenced by the band's work with the Claddagh Fund, a charity the group established in 2009 to help support addiction recovery, as well as children and veterans' organizations. Its songs all pay tribute to those who have gone through hard times, including the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing.

Lead singer Ken Casey commented, "Since that day, we felt like not taking the challenge to write a song about what we all went through would be taking the coward's way out. We put more importance on writing that piece of music than anything we've ever done."
