We wrote that Flogging Molly announced a new tour yesterday with The White Buffalo. Today, we also know that the band will be also releasing a new album (finally) called Life is Good via Vanguard Records. It will be released on June 2nd!
The album was produced by Grammy Award winning Joe Chiccarelli (U2, White Stripes, Beck) and recorded in Dublin, Ireland, Life Is Good marks Flogging Molly’s first studio album in six years since 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, 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 has just wrapped up their annual “Salty Dog Cruise” and will be heading to Los Angeles on St. Patrick’s Day, March 17th for their “Devil’s Dance Floor” celebration at The Forum with special guests Mighty Mighty Bosstones and Mariachi El Bronx. Tickets are on sale now.
