Flogging Molly is coming to Penn’s Peak at 8 p.m. March 1. The entertainment venue made the announcement this afternoon.
The social and political awareness that drives Flogging Molly’s music is never more prominent than in their latest release “Life is Good,” a strikingly powerful album and it arrives at a strikingly key time.
The sixth studio album by the renowned Celtic-punk rockers, now in their 20th year, is mature, well crafted, equally polished and almost aggressively topical. It is filled with rousing songs that are timeless in their sentiment, but directly related to today’s most pressing concerns: Politics, the economy, unemployment, planned boomtowns gone bust, immigration policies gone awry, and much more.
For singer and lyricist Dave King, it may be the lyrical couplet contained within the surging “Reptiles (We Woke Up”) that points toward the album’s central theme. “We woke up,” sings King, “And we won’t fall back asleep.”
Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday at all Ticketmaster outlets, the Penn’s Peak Box Office and Roadies Restaurant and Bar. Penn’s Peak Box Office and Roadies Restaurant ticket sales are walk-up only, no phone orders.
