Flogging Molly release song online ahead of new album

Celtic folk punks Flogging Molly are getting all worked up about the rise of unemployment in America on their new single ‘Don’t Shut ‘Em Down’.

The single is being given away for free on their website www.floggingmolly.com ahead of the release of their album ‘Speed Of Darkness’ on May 30.

The tempo of the song is quite slow for such a politically charged punk song, but this tempo lends itself to the party feeling of their live sets. On a first listen it sounds like the fire might have left the playing of this stalwart band, it almost seems as though everything has been turned down and over produced after the intro, but when you listen to the lyrics its clear that the fire still rages.

If the rest of the album is like this it’ll be a good one, though I would hope for some harder, faster material too.

Have a watch of the video here:
