Flogging Molly formed all the way back in 1997 by Dublin-born lead vocalist Dave King, formerly of 80s heavy metal band Fastway. The seven piece band are now based in LA and give their North American fans a real treat when they are performing live on the circuit.
Taking their band name from Molly Malone's; the bar which gave them a weekly residency in their infancy. According to King, "We used to play there every Monday night and we felt like we were flogging it to death, so we called the band Flogging Molly." Despite their traditional influences, Flogging Molly's music is far from traditional, fusing the sound of beloved Celtic instrumentation with a punk rock energy, bluesy chord progressions and raw, relevant, politically charged lyrics. They have released one independent live album, five studio albums and a DVD/CD combo which was certified platinum. In 2015, Flogging Molly released their first studio album in four years!
Since then Flogging Molly have been making an annual trip to the stage as they decided to create the yearly 'Caribbean cruise' event. The 2015 Salty Dog Cruise Cruise featured the likes of; The Real McKenzies, Frank Turner, Gogol Bordello, among others over three days leaving from Miami to Nassau and Great Stirrup Cay on the Norwegian Sky.
Now in 2019 they are more than ready for a triumphant night with Social Distortion and The Devil Makes Three right at Freedom Hill Amphitheatre!
