Following one sell-out in Melbourne, catch quintessential Irish-American Celtic folk/punk band Flogging Molly at The Croxton in April!  Known for their distinctive fusion of traditional Irish music and ohard-hitting punk rock, their impassioned live show has won the hearts of many Aussies over the past two decades.

The social and political awareness that drives Flogging Molly’s music is never more prominent than in their latest release 'Life Is Good' – a strikingly powerful album that has arrived at a key time in our existence. Though many of the lyrics found in Flogging Molly tracks have been sparked by events vocalist Dave King’s youth - he seamlessly addresses themes of war-torn Ireland, his Father’s premature death, and his move to the United States as a child into the fold - there is a political commentary that hangs in the balance with 'Life Is Good', which just so happens to be their first full-length release since 2011’s 'Speed of Darkness'. With 20 years of performing together under their belts, the music is mature, well crafted, equally polished and almost aggressively topical. It is filled with rousing songs that are timeless in their sentiment, but directly related to today’s most pressing concerns: politics, the economy, unemployment, planned boomtowns gone bust, immigration policies gone awry and much more.

Taking cues from Irish folk acts such as The Dubliners and The Pogues, Flogging Molly have clear influences from the Emerald Isle in their music. With a plethora of instruments on stage - including acoustic guitar, electric guitar, bodhráns, violin, tin whistle, banjo, mandolin, accordion, piano, concertina, bass guitar, drums and percussion - their powerful live performance is sure to entertain audiences across Australia this April.
