The Dropkick Murphys have delivered sturdy, shout-along anthems for more than two decades, never really straying too far from a mix of their Irish and punk heritages.

However, on “11 Short Stories of Pain & Glory” (Born & Bred), the band led by Ken Casey and Al Barr finds new inspiration in unexpected places to fuel its most potent album in years.

The poignant cover of “You’ll Never Walk Alone,” from the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical “Carousel,” is transformed into a stomping anthem, punctuated with rock riffs and bagpipes. It’s one of several songs inspired by the opioid epidemic in and around their beloved Boston, including the raucous “Rebels With a Cause” that champions “dead end kids” and their plights.
