Flogging Molly
Flogging Molly
Flogging Molly has never conformed to industry tastes; they've always been the outcasts who put their fans before commercial success, and they've always put their music before marketability. The rewards of such independence and integrity are undeniable on Speed of Darkness. You feel it from the first note to the last, the pathos and the passion, the sweeping and rollicking electricity of inspiration.

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 King's youth. "We're not a traditional band," explains 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. Whether it's a driving anthem like "Black Friday Rule" or the upbeat duet with Lucinda Williams, "Factory Girls", the band's only criteria for its music is simple and bone-deep: that it matter.
The Mighty Stef
2013 is set up to be an exciting time for The Mighty Stef, a seasoned, alternative – rock band based out of Dublin, Ireland. Already an experienced touring and recording act TMS are gearing up to make a re-defining new studio Album early next year. The band will record the new album at 11AD in Hollywood, CA with acclaimed Producer Alain Johannes. To date Johannes has made albums with Queens Of The Stoneage, Mark Lanegan, Arctic Monkeys, Chris Cornell, Black Box Revelator, Spinnerette and many more. The band plan a campaign of release for the new album in the spring of 2013 together with some extensive touring.

The Mighty Stef have an extensive touring and recording history and have what you might describe as a cult following in Europe and The US. 2012, however, largely seen a break in touring for the band to concentrate on writing the new record. A more ambitious musical landscape and the addition of an outside producer is pointing in the dierction of a very new and exciting departure in sound for this worldly group of Dublin men.

Sonically The Mighty Stef embraces the glory of rock n roll in all its forms. The storytelling nature of the songwriting, an often dark undertone and a constant march towards something rich and big and victorious. Notable references [some of which are also influences] include: The Walkmen, Arcade Fire, Band Of Horses, Fleet Foxes, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds and Primal Scream.
