Dummy Luck Music/[PIAS]

Dropkick Murphys have premiered the video for “Gotta Get to Peekskill,” their collaborative song with Violent Femmes.

The visual begins with newspaper clippings telling the backstory of the track, which refers to a 1949 concert headlined by musician Paul Robeson and attended by Woody Guthrie. Concertgoers were attacked by the Ku Klux Klan upon leaving the show.

You can the video streaming now on YouTube.

“Gotta Get to Peekskill” appears on the upcoming Dropkick album Okemah Rising, due out May 12. The songs on the record are based on the unpublished writings of Guthrie.
