Flogging Molly Celebrates 20 Years of SWAGGER
To celebrate 20 years of Flogging Molly's Swagger which impacted the punk and rock music worlds as an utterly unique statement from an undeniably incredible group of musicians, who to that point had been honing the songs in increasingly packed bars until all were razor sharp. Swagger would go on to serve as the blueprint for an entire style of modern punk rock, melding classic punk with Celtic roots and instrumentation.
Dave King, frontman for Flogging Molly, had the following to share about the upcoming reissue:
“Never in our wildest dreams did we ever imagine that 20 years on, we would be celebrating the release of our first studio album, ‘Swagger’. Yet here we are, a little older, maybe none the wiser, but very grateful for what has been an amazing experience.
More than 20 years ago we set sail for Chicago, the home of Electrical Audio and the wonderful Steve Albini. With a fistful of songs, from ‘Salty Dog’ to ‘Far Away Boys’, we plugged in and belted out everything we had and made sure that no song was left behind. Little did we know that ‘Swagger’ would become the breaking ground, and the sound, of Flogging Molly.
So, we would like to thank you all for the last 20 years of wonderful memories,
and hopefully many more to come.”
Following the biggest year of touring in the band’s history that saw them play over 100 shows across North America, South America, EU/UK, Japan and Australia, as well as a sold out Salty Dog cruise, Flogging Molly are stoked to announce they have signed with Rise Records/BMG for the world. The band is currently writing its next album and recording will commence as soon as possible in 2021.
