Legendary Celtic punk band Flogging Molly return with the new single “These Times Have Got Me Drinking/Tripping Up The Stairs” as the band kicks off their U.S. tour.
“It’s a perfect song for right now,” said singer/guitar player Dave King. “I think it summarises everything our band is about – which is celebration with our loved ones in trying times. It’s about joy amidst, and in spite of, stuff trying to grind us down.”
Flogging Molly play The Truman in Kansas City tomorrow night, with the eagerly-awaited return of the group’s venerated annual St. Patrick’s Day festival happening next Thursday at the Hollywood Palladium. Having livestreamed the 2021 event, the band mix the best of both worlds for 2022, with the concert being broadcast worldwide via a simultaneous livestream (tickets: Floggingmolly.veeps.com). Flogging Molly set sail on 28th March, helming the sold-out Salty Dog Cruise, which also includes performances from the Descendents, Frank Turner, Agent Orange and more.
