Flogging Molly

Even if you don’t know anything about Celtic punk you know about two bands: Dropkick Murphys and Flogging Molly. Well one of those bands has a new record out and they’re on tour! Hint, it’s Flogging Molly.

Now to be totally honest I haven’t listened to Flogging Molly in a very long time but I loved what I listend to all those years ago. When I was poking around on the web and I found out they were on tour I decided to give them a listen again and I wasn’t disappointed.

Okay so I listened to one song but it was enough to make me want to listen to the rest of the record and see them live. I’m a busy guy! The new record is called Speed of Darkness and I would recommend checking it out and seeing them on tour. Hit the jump for a blurb about the record and their tour dates.

From All Eyes Media

Speed Of Darkness is music to play after you’ve lost your job or your love, and music to listen to as you dream of better things for your family and country.  It’s the music you hear as you fight a bigger man, and it’s the music you hear as you help him from the floor and buy him a pint at the bar.  The album, like Flogging Molly itself, is a testament to youth and resilience, to growing old and the wisdom of scars, and yet for all of the record’s darkness and the speed with which it descends, the ultimate theme is one of light: We can persevere.  We must and we will persevere.
