Celtic punk group Flogging Molly hosts and headlines the 10th Annual Green 17 Tour with supporting artist The Drowning Men. The national tour will kick off in Atlanta, Georgia, February 15. Flogging Molly headlines the tour every year, and also plays large music festivals including Warped Tour and Austin City Limits.
Flogging Molly has released five studio albums, Swagger, Drunken Lullabies, Within a Mile of Home, Float and Speed of Darkness. The musical group has also released an acoustic live DVD/CD combo Whiskey on a Sunday, which has gone platinum. In 2007, Flogging Molly released their album Float. The group recognized the album as influential to their career, since it was their first album recorded in Ireland, lead singer Dave King’s home country. Alternative Press stated the album was “one of the most important CDs of the year, if not the decade.” Float reached No. 4 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart, which also included their hit single “Requiem for a Dying Song.”
Flogging Molly’s unique music style is influenced by artists like Johnny Cash, The Dubliners and The Clash. Their style includes lyrics that portray Ireland and its history, poverty, drinking, politics, love, death, and include several references to the Roman Catholic Church. Expect a high energy crowd at the show!
