Dirty Shirt, hailing from Romania, is gearing up for an exciting April 1st as they release their sixth album “Get Your Dose Now!”; play live on Rock FM Bucharest and later that day, kick off their new tour in support of the release. Each song on the album has a particular ambiance, very different from the others, but coherent. They explain the album:

“We think that the album will be very well received by fans because you can recognize our “touch” from previous albums, and at the same time it is a surprising album. Album after album, we try to reinvent ourselves keeping our “musical” credo from the beginning: never auto-censure ourselves. We keep using East European traditional influences, but at the same time, we explore new horizons. The fact that we worked with many talented musicians (almost 30 musicians appear on the album), gives authenticity and adds personality to our sound.”

“Get Your Dose Now!” is a shorter nine-track album, with a little more than 30 minutes, but Dirty Shirt maintains that the listening experience will be very intense, as they combine many influences, and the songs change constantly with complex orchestrations. It was produced by Mihai Tivadar, mixed and mastered by Adrian Bila Uritescu and the album artwork was done by Lia Cucuianu.

Dirty Shirt brings a truly unique live experience, huge energy, huge emotions, and fun, with a scaling lineup based on the performance, which adds a lot of authenticity and a great live sound. This tour will hit festivals including HellFest (France), Reload (Germany), Dong Open Air (Germany), Plane’r Fest (France), and Les Bichoiseries (France).

Recommended for anyone looking for something interesting and lively, Dirty Shirt is for fans of Twelve Foot Ninja, Dubioza Kolektiv, and Eluveitie.

The album “Get Your Dose Now!” is out on April 1, 2022.

Dirty Shirt is a top Romanian crossover folkcore metal band, winner of second place at the international final of Wacken Metal Battle 2014 and of several awards at Metalhead Awards and Maximum Rock Awards. The band’s unique style derives from mixing the heavy sound of modern rock/metal with the festive ambiance of East-European traditional music, the eclecticism of world music (country, reggae, and tribal rhythms), the electro sound of industrial music, the energy of hardcore, and the groove of funk. It’s not surprising to find great appreciation for Dirty Shirt albums in hundreds of reviews all over the world, including in well-respected magazines such as Metal Hammer (DE, HU), Rock Hard – (DE, FR, SLK), Metalsucks – USA, Hard Rock Mag – FR, Terrorizer – UK, etc.
