I’ve always liked Irish-American folk-punk band Flogging Molly, as much of their sound is influenced by bands like The Pogues and The Dubliners. So I was thrilled to see Flogging Molly show up on Jimmy Kimmel Live! this week where they performed two songs — ‘Drunken Lullabies‘ and ‘The Hand of John L. Sullivan‘ — raucously and cool.
‘Drunken Lullabies‘ is the title track from their 2002 album, and ‘The Hand of John L. Sullivan‘ is from their upcoming new album, which will be released sometime in 2016 on Borstal Beat Records, the band’s own record label.
Flogging Molly are currently on their ‘Splash‘ tour, with tons of tour dates coming up in places like Miami, Austin and Dallas, Cleveland, San Diego, Minneapolis in the U.S., and then on into Europe with dates in Germany, Austria, Luxembourg, Switzerland, Finland and Norway to name just a few.
You’ll find all their tour dates on the Flogging Molly website.
Meanwhile, watch their two fabulous performances on Jimmy Kimmel LIve! last night. Wild, awesome and very very cool.
