The disc bows with tributes to the fallen: written for and dedicated to the band’s friend Greg ‘Chickenman’ Riley, “Your Spirit’s Alive” also remembers Boston Bruin great Ace Bailey and hockey standout Mark Bavis who perished on United Airlines flight 175 on Sept. 11, 2001. “Last Letter Home,” salutes American serviceman and Dropkick Murphys fan Sgt. Andrew Farrar, who died on his 31st birthday January 28th, 2005. Shortly before his death in a letter he sent home, Farrar requested the Dropkick Murphys’ version of “Fields of Athenry” be played at his funeral should anything happen to him while he was in Iraq. In addition to blending excerpts from that very letter into “Last Letter Home,” the band was present at Farrar’s funeral and played “The Fields Of Athenry” on the pipes as the casket entered the church.
