Starting out as the house band for Molly Malone’s in Los Angeles and building a loyal following through endless touring, Flogging Molly has become a staple in the punk scene over the past 20-plus years, kicking off with their riotous debut album, Swagger, and continuing through their six additional studio albums.
Flogging Molly’s most recent album Anthem arrived in September 2022 via Rise Records and saw the band reunite with legendary engineer Steve Albini (who worked with Flogging Molly on their first two albums Swagger and Drunken Lullabies). Brooklyn Vegan said Anthem is “a ripper,” New Noise said Anthem “easily satisfies expectations the Celtic-inspired punks have built over a decades-long career,” and American Songwriter triumphantly declared, “Flogging Molly is back.”
The band released four videos in support of Anthem, including the timely track and clip for “A Song of Liberty,” penned by King as a recounting of a dark period in Irish history but made all the more relevant with events in Ukraine. The Mad Twins, Ukrainian animators/filmmakers, created the stirring video (https://youtu.be/ccGKjOQsEp0). On March 10, 2023, the band released a new, three-song, ‘Til The Anarchy’s Restored EP (Rise Records), featuring the previously unreleased title track and one-take performances of the band’s classic songs: “Drunken Lullabies” and “What’s Left of the Flag.”
Recent touring has brought Flogging Molly to historic locations including Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium, Austin City Limits Live at The Moody Theater, and the band’s annual St. Patrick’s Day outing at the Hollywood Palladium (which routinely sells out). The band’s annual Salty Dog Cruise sets sail November 8, has already sold out, and will feature Pennywise, The Interrupters, Stiff Little Fingers and many more.
