Canadian Celtic punk band The Mahones revealed details about their upcoming Greatest Hits album 25 Years of Irish Punk. The album will be released on Sailor’s Grave Records this Summer.

Formed on St. Patrick’s Day in 1990 in Kingston, ON by Irish born Finny McConnell, The Mahones have become an institution of Irish punk rock for the last 25 years. Their list of accolades and achievements during that time is nearly endless, from having their track “Paint The Town Red” featured in a pivotal part of Academy Award winning film “The Fighter” to being awarded Celtic Rock Album of the Year by (Ireland) for their 2014 recordThe Hunger & The Fight..

The Mahones are comprised of McConnell (lead vocals/guitar/mandolin), Katie Kaboom (accordion/keyboards/mandolin/vocals), Sean Winter (banjo/mandolin/harmonica/vocals), Sean “Riot” Ryan (bass guitar/vocals), Michael O’Grady (accordion/tin whistle/guitar/vocals) and Scruffy Wallace (bagpipes/tin whistle/guitar/vocals) who has re-joined the band after spending 2003-2015 with Dropkick Murphys and rounds out the group.
