20-Year Anniversary Limited Edition on red vinyl

Founded in Los Angeles in 1997, Flogging Molly has always defied categorization. The infectious originality of their songs is a badge of honor and key to the band's creativity, their urgency. They infuse punk rock with Celtic instruments – violin, mandolin and the accordion – and they merge blues progressions with grinding guitars and traditional Irish music, the music of Dave King's youth.
"We're not a traditional band," explains the Dublin-born King. "We are influenced by traditional music and inspired by it, but without question we put our own twist on it." Theirs is music of exile and rebellion, of struggle and history and protest. It's music of a country torn down the middle; a deeply beautiful and wounded country that knows no quit, and Flogging Molly pays homage to that resolve in every note.
In celebration of the 20th anniversary of SideOneDummy Records, the label is reissuing the band's blazing debut Swagger on vinyl in gatefold packaging. Swagger transcended everyone's expectations in 2000. The track "The Worst Day Since Yesterday" was famously featuring in the film Mr. and Mrs. Smith while further fan favorites came in the form of "Salty Dog," "Devil's Dance Floor," and "Black Friday Rule."
