Flogging Molly have announced that their long-awaited new album “Life is Good” will be released on June 2nd, 2017, via Spinefarm/Vanguard Records.

Produced by Grammy Award-winner Joe Chiccarelli (U2, White Stripes, Beck) and recorded in Dublin, Ireland, “Life is Good” marks Flogging Molly’s first studio album in six years – the follow-up to 2011’s highly acclaimed “Speed of Darkness”, which reached #9 on Billboard’s Top 200 in the US.

Founded by Dublin-born front-man Dave King and fiddle-player Bridget Regan, Flogging Molly have long been hailed for their compelling lyrics of exile, rebellion, history and struggle told through exuberant anthems fiercely blending raucous punk rock and traditional Irish music.

A North American headlining tour in support of the release kicks off on May 4th in Oakland, CA, bringing the band’s adrenaline-fuelled live performances to cities across the U.S.A. and Canada.

Flogging Molly have just wrapped up their annual “Salty Dog Cruise” and will be heading to Los Angeles on St. Patrick’s Day, March 17th for their “Devil’s Dance Floor” celebration at The Forum with special guests Mighty Mighty Bosstones and Mariachi El Bronx. Tickets are on sale now. The show will also be live streamed on Tidal. Tune in here at 7:30pm PST.
