One of Eastern Europe’s most successful and diverse metal bands, Dirty Shirt is an amalgamation of folk metal, nu-metal, hardcore, metalcore, industrial and alternative rock. Originally, they started as a wedding band and since evolved into a creative, colourful band that plays with a very wide range of musical influences.
The next single, or singles, off the upcoming album, is the two parted Cand s-o-mpartit norocu’, which means “when good luck was portioned out” when translated to English. The two tracks take their inspiration from a very sad Romanian song, which the band explains further:
“Part one starts with a monotonous and almost funeral ambiance, with a long development in crescendo to the chorus. In part two, the ambiance becomes more psychedelic, with Tool influence on verses. There is an instrumental bridge to the chorus, with gypsy influences, and the chorus in English, with an “elevating” ambiance and an alternative/grunge sound. Except for the English chorus, the lyrics are from traditional music, and it is about the fact that we are confronted with tragedies in our lives. Unfortunately, it is impossible for us not to make the link between the visual and musical atmosphere of the video and what is happening in our neighbouring country, Ukraine. It is a sad song, with a sad video, for sad times…”

The video for Cand s-o-mpartit norocu’ (Part 1 & 2) was made by Costin Chioreanu (Ghost, Marylin Manson, Opeth, Carcass, Hypocrisy), a Romanian artist internationally recognized for his unique style of graphics and animation.
Get Your Dose Now! is the sixth full-length in the band’s discography, which also includes their EP Pandemic Special released earlier this year and three live recordings Live at Wacken (2019), FolkCore DeTour (2018) and Live in the Truck (2011) plus a long history of festival performances. The very diversified album will surprise listeners, but will also be familiar to long-standing fans.
There are eight core members of Dirty Shirt, with a multitude of guest musicians coined as the Transylvanian Folkcore Orchestra who take part in recording and some larger live performances. Each of the musicians leaves their touch on the music, making it complex, vast, and intriguing. They are recommended for fans of System of A Down, Skindred, Diablo Swing Orchestra, and Twelve Foot Ninja.
The album Get Your Dose Now is out on April 1, 2022.
