The long awaited new album “LIFE IS GOOD” from the Irish-American seven-piece Celtic punk band FLOGGING MOLLY will be released on June 2nd via Spinefarm/Vanguard Records.
Produced by Grammy Award winning Joe Chiccarelli (U2, White Stripes, Beck) and recorded in Dublin, Ireland LIFE IS GOOD marks the band’s first studio album in six years, following on from 2011’s highly acclaimed Speed of Darkness which reached #9 on Billboard’s Top 200.
Founded by Dublin-born frontman Dave King and fiddle-player Bridget Regan circa 1993 FLOGGING MOLLY have long been hailed for their compelling lyrics of exile, rebellion, history and struggle — told through exuberant anthems with a fierce blend of raucous punk/rock and traditional Irish music.
The band have already embarked on their annual St. Patrick’s “Salty Dog Cruise” and headed to Los Angeles on March 17th for their “Devil’s Dance Floor” celebrations at The Forum with special guests Mighty Mighty Bosstones and Mariachi El Bronx.
