Flogging Molly announce new album ‘Anthem,’ drop new song ‘The Croppy Boy ’98’

Legendary Celtic punk band, Flogging Molly return with their first new album in five years, ‘Anthem,’ out September 9th, via Rise Records, a collection that finds the raucous Los Angeles-by-way-of-Dublin outfit reunited with Swagger’ and ‘Drunken Lullabies’ engineer Steve Albini.

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 singer/guitar player 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. For Flogging Molly, getting together and playing new songs is always the goal – and now we’re just getting excited to start playing these songs live and giving our fans a whole new era of Flogging Molly.

A second preview of the 11-song collection arrives today, with the release of ‘The Croppy Boy ’98,’ a track that King describes as: “a foot-stomping, rollicking ode to traditional Irish music.” The song’s arrival is accompanied by a live video featuring footage from Flogging Molly’s recent St. Patrick’s Day performance and annual festival at the Hollywood Palladium.
