With their astounding melodies and a heavy influence of traditional Irish folk music, Flogging Molly has brought the distinct spheres of rock and folk music a little closer with a unique trademark of old fashioned Celtic punk that has held a distinct fan base for the past decade. The band brings their mix of brash punk rock guitars, violins, whistles and accordions to the stage as Austin City Limits welcomes them for their first appearance on the show.
Originally from Los Angeles, Flogging Molly’s frantic energy and Irish pride is a clear-cut indicator that this band plays by their own rules. Since their 2000 debut, the septet has released four studio albums and built a conglomeration of devoted fans across the globe that never exhaust of the band’s fusion of old and new world revolt. The band’s Float (2008) was praised as “one of the most important records of this year, if not the decade” (Alternative Press). Crawdaddy! wrote, “Flogging Molly’s blend of traditional Irish music and supersonic punk is guaranteed to propel you out of your seat and into a pogo-hopping frenzy.”
