The Boston-based Dropkick Murphys are out with their seventh studio album. "Going Out In Style" is filled with odes to family, friends, the working man and fallen soldiers. And it's based on the life of Cornelius "Connie" Larkin, a fictitious creation of the band and author Michael Patrick MacDonald, who is the touchstone for the story of the Irish immigrant experience in America. We talk with the band's bass player, vocalist and founding member Ken Casey.

This segment aired on April 4, 2011.
