Biography

Los Angeles, United States (1997 – present)

Flogging Molly is a seven-piece Irish American band that formed in Los Angeles, in 1997 and is currently signed to SideOneDummy Records. The band consists of Dave King (vocals, guitar, banjo, bodhrán), Bridget Regan-King (fiddle, uillean pipes, vocals), Dennis Casey (guitar, vocals), Matt Hensley (accordion, concertina), Nathen Maxwell (bass, vocals), Bob Schmidt (mandolin, banjo) and George Schwindt (drums, percussion).

Flogging Molly has released four major studio albums, Swagger, Drunken Lullabies, Within a Mile of Home, and Float, as well as an independent live album entitled Alive Behind the Green Door. Also, they released a CD/DVD combo entitled Whiskey On A Sunday, which included a CD with acoustic tracks of many of the band’s songs and a brand new studio track, “Laura”. They have toured with the Warped Tour and Larry Kirwan’s American Fléadh Festival. They also contributed to the Rock Against Bush project. Also, as of late they have done extensive touring with the self proclaimed band, Gogol Bordello, which is also signed under SideOneDummy Records.

Their music is heavily influenced by such bands as The Pogues,The Dubliners, Johnny Cash and ranges from boisterous like the -themed “Salty Dog” and “Seven Deadly Sins,” or the defiant “What’s Left of the Flag” and “Rebels of the Sacred Heart” to more somber songs like “Far Away Boys”, “The Sun Never Shines (On Closed Doors)”, or “Death Valley Queen”. In the Whiskey On A Sunday DVD King describes the band’s music as a ’21st century version of The Dubliners.’
