Flogging Molly’s latest release “Within a Mile from Home” reaches sales of over 200,000

“With disappearing clouds the sun arrives/Within a mile of home”

For Dave King, the Dublin-born singer/guitarist/songwriter of Flogging Molly, the band’s third studio album, Within a Mile of Home (out in September of 2004) brings him back to his childhood and the traditional Irish music he grew up with. The album, produced once again by the band’s one-time guitarist Ted Hutt, fuses the music of his youth with the feverish punk-rock of Irish bands like U2, Stiff Little Fingers, the Pogues, the Undertones and Dropkick Murphys, not to mention seminal influences like the Clash and David Bowie. The bands fabled energy and presence can be heard loud and clear on the new album, which follows 2000’s Swagger and 2002’s critically acclaimed Drunken Lullabyes. Recorded at L.A.’s Cello Studios and Hollywood Sound, Within a Mile of Home captures the group’s patented mix of an Irish fuel with punk-rock intensity.
