Flogging Molly’s new, three-song, ‘Til The Anarchy’s Restored EP (Rise Records), featuring the previously unreleased title track and one-take performances of the band’s classic songs: “Drunken Lullabies” and “What’s Left of the Flag,” is available today via Rise Records.

“In a world that seems more divided than ever, this song feels more like a letter reaching out to a neighbor or a friend, and renewing relationships that might seem lost or gone,” said Dave King about the title track. “Maybe it’s time to say hello again.”

A video for “‘Drunken Lullabies (Live From Electrical Audio)”  featuring footage from the band’s Summer shows in Manchester and Dublin, captures the rollicking atmosphere surrounding Flogging Molly’s live performances. The dates were part of the initial wave of shows surrounding the release of their seventh studio album, Anthem. A collection that saw the band reunite with Steve Albini (he worked with Flogging Molly on their first two albums: Swagger and Drunken Lullabies).

Currently back on the road, recent performances have seen the Celtic punk band playing historic locations including Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium, Austin City Limits Live at The Moody Theater, and the band’s forthcoming, annual St. Patrick’s Day outing at the Hollywood Palladium. They play this evening at the Voodoo Lounge (Harrah’s) in Kansas City.

Flogging Molly also recently announced a late Spring European trek, with several festival performances amidst the month-long tour, including outings at Rock Am Ring, Rock Im Park, Hellfest, and both Slam Dunk Festivals. 

With five years between albums, expectations for Anthem were high, with the band delivering a quintessentially rollicking, and heartfelt, collection. Brooklyn Vegan said Anthem is “a ripper,” New Noise said Anthem “easily satisfies expectations the Celtic-inspired punks have built over a decades-long career,” and American Songwriter triumphantly declared, “Flogging Molly is back.” The band released four videos in support of Anthem, including the timely track and clip for “A Song of Liberty,” penned by King as a recounting of a dark period in Irish history but made all the more relevant with events in Ukraine. The Mad Twins, Ukrainian animators/filmmakers, created the stirring video (https://youtu.be/ccGKjOQsEp0).
