Flogging Molly’s Dave King on working with Steve Albini & celebrating Drunken Lullabies

Kenny Rogers

Flogging Molly frontman Dave King takes us into the band’s new album, Anthem, and his love of history

Flogging Molly's Dave King joins Kyle Meredith to delve into the band's latest album, Anthem. The Celtic punk group reunites with Steve Albini, who previously mixed their debut album in 2000. King explores the themes of history and nostalgia, drawing inspiration from his childhood and addressing historical events like the 1916 Rising in Ireland. He reflects on the parallels between historical patterns, observing echoes of the past in the ongoing situation in Ukraine.

The conversation takes an introspective turn as King shares his perspective on societal progress, contrasting the trajectory of Ireland with what he perceives as backward steps in America. Additionally, he touches upon the significance of the 20th anniversary of Drunken Lullabies, providing insights into the band's enduring journey and evolving sound.
