Dropkick Murphys' Singer Search

When Dropkick Murphys bassist Ken Casey found that he would have to exit the punk band's current tour because of severe pneumonia, lead singer Mike McColgan took the opportunity to tell his bandmates that he was leaving, too. McColgan plans to take a job with the Boston Fire

Department, according to Jason Henry, Epitaph Records spokesperson. Henry

said the band hopes to have Casey back in good health and a replacement for

McColgan secured in time for the Dropkicks to take their place on this

summer's Warped tour.
