At select venues, fans will receive a free digital download of the new full-length with their ticket purchase.
LIFE IS GOOD is Flogging Molly’s first studio album in six years, which follows their highly acclaimed album, Speed of Darkness, that reached #9 on Billboard’s Top 200. In an a review of the new record, the Illinois Entertainer proclaims,”Flogging Molly spends the entire album doing exactly what it’s best at – turning sadness into celebration, death into life affirmation, darkness and despair into light and hope, and political turmoil into some sort of edifying, optimistic narrative.” Amplify Australia comments, “the best of Celtic Music” and Slug Magazine adds, “There’s a strong sense of musicianship and passion that goes into their music.”
LIFE IS GOOD was produced by GRAMMY Award winning Joe Chiccarelli (U2, White Stripes, Beck) and recorded in Ireland. Flogging Molly has received more than 80 million streams on Spotify with more than 600,000 monthly listeners.
