Flogging Molly announce new album ‘Anthem’ (exclusive vinyl & new song)
Pre-order Flogging Molly's new album on limited olive-in-clear vinyl.
Celtic punk heroes Flogging Molly recently released their first song in five years, "These Times Have Got Me Drinking / Tripping Up the Stairs," and now they've announced a new album, Anthem, due September 9 via Rise Records. It's the band's seventh overall, and it reunites them with engineer Steve Albini, who worked on their classic 2000 debut Swagger. "With this record we went back to the basics in a way that I don’t think we could have done if we hadn’t been playing together for over 20 years," says frontman Dave King. "I think going back to Chicago and doing this record with Steve made the experience so fun and I really believe you can hear that on the record."
The album opens with "These Times Have Got Me Drinking," and it also includes new single "The Croppy Boy '98," which King calls a "rollicking ode to traditional Irish music" and you can definitely hear the band's trad side coming through in this one, which sounds like an old Irish folk song and leans more minor-key/melancholic compared to the rousing punk of the previous single. It also comes with a live video, featuring footage from their recent St. Patrick's Day performance and annual festival at the Hollywood Palladium. Check it out below.
We've also teamed up with Flogging Molly on an exclusive "olive in clear" vinyl variant of the album, limited to just 300 copies. Pre-order yours here while they last. They look like this:
