FLOGGING MOLLY have announced that their long-awaited new album LIFE IS GOOD will be released onJune 2nd via Spinefarm/Vanguard Records.

Produced by Grammy Award-winner Joe Chiccarelli (U2, White Stripes, Beck) and recorded in Dublin, Ireland, LIFE IS GOOD marks FLOGGING MOLLY’S first studio album in six years – the follow-up to 2011’s highly acclaimed Speed of Darkness which reached #9 on Billboard’s Top 200 in the US.

 Founded by Dublin-born front-man Dave King and fiddle-player Bridget Regan, FLOGGING MOLLY have long been hailed for their compelling lyrics of exile, rebellion, history and struggle told through exuberant anthems fiercely blending raucous punk rock and traditional Irish music.

A North American headlining tour in support of the release kicks off on May 4th in Oakland, CA, bringing the band’s adrenaline-fuelled live performances to cities across the U.S.A. and Canada.
