Flogging Molly on tour~
www.floggingmolly.com

1st major US tour since the release of "Speed of Darkness"
 
Celebrated Celtic punk ensemble Flogging Molly is embarking on their 8th Annual Green 17 Tour, a month-long trek beginning in Detroit, MI on February 17 and ending on March 17 (St. Patrick's Day)  in Tempe, AZ. The Green 17 Tour was born in 2004 as a countdown to St. Patrick’s Day with a performance and celebration in each city leading to the holiday.
 
2011 was an amazing year for Flogging Molly. The band launched Borstal Beat Records (their own independent label) and released their highly acclaimed fifth album, Speed Of Darkness. The album was written in Detroit and was inspired by the US economic crisis, with the Motor City as its focal point. The result was the group’s most socially conscious and musically ambitious work to date, and the reaction spoke volumes. Speed Of Darkness debuted in the Top 10 (#9 overall) and received critical praise from such press outlets as The Wall Street Journal, RollingStone.com, Alternative Press, Associated Press, USA Today, Parade Magazine, Huffington Post and many more. Flogging Molly made their debut appearance on the acclaimed PBS program Austin City Limits and were the subject of a story on the CBS Evening News http://www.cbsnews.com/video/watch/?id=7377632n.
 
Flogging Molly has created a body of work that blends traditional Celtic sounds, hard-edged punk and thoughtful, socially conscious lyrics. Their incredible live shows and blue-collar ethic continue to resonated with fans worldwide.
 
Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears and Devil Makes Three will be supporting on select dates, with other support to be announced.

Sad, this will be my 3rd time missing them. Every time they are in Seattle I'm in Spokane and every time they are in Spokane I'm in Seattle!
