Flogging Molly premieres new music in five years

Just in time for St. Patrick’s Day, Flogging Molly has unveiled their first new song in five years, “The Hand of John L. Sullivan” exclusively via  Alternative Press. Recorded with producer Ross Hogarth, “The Hand of John L. Sullivan” honors the Irish-American heavyweight boxing champion and is one of the featured tracks on the band’s upcoming Fall album marking their Vanguard Records debut.  “John L Sullivan, was the diamond cut for every poor man’s hop,” states lead vocalist Dave King. “He was the first true working class hero and to shake the hand of John L Sullivan was the dream that could leave their struggles behind and maybe somehow give them hope.  Here is the first of many new songs and hopefully our Flogging Molly family are as excited as we are to what lies ahead.”

Beginning today, the single is available for purchase via iTunes.

Flogging Molly is currently on tour and will be performing on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Thursday, March 17th followed by an epic show at Irvine Meadows Amphitheater in Irvine, CA with special guests Hepcat and Gogol Bordello later that night!  Show begins at 7:00pm and tickets are still available.  For more information and purchase tickets visit http://www.floggingmolly.com/splash_tour/.
