Drunken Dru are a maritime/punk/Celtic/metal and folk outfit outta of Montreal Quebec and are part of the extended Mahones / Peelers family. Sean “Riot” Ryan of the Mahones plays guitar here.
“Saint Henri”, Drunken Dru’s third full length – and first as a non one-man band – is a proudly DIY affair – trashy, fast folk-punk, with more of a punkie emphasis. The band that comes to mind for the “sounds like” comparison is The Filthy Thieving Bastards (or even the $wingin’ Utter$….you get me drift)
Highlights include the Irish/maritime “Heading for a Halifax” and the neck breaking “The way you ride”
A nice find. Recommended.
