Flogging Molly to bring Life is Good Tour to Starland Ballroom

Celtic punk ensemble Flogging Molly will bring their Life is Good Tour to Starland Ballroom at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 2 with special guests Anti-Flag and Jon Snodgrass.

Flogging Molly are on the road promoting their latest studio long-player, Life Is Good, which debuted back in June at No. 69 on the Billboard 200. The album, released on Vanguard Records, features guest appearances from members of Mariachi El Bronx and Hostile Nations.

Drunken Lullabies, Flogging Molly’s sophomore album, celebrated its 15th anniversary earlier this year. The album, which reached No. 104 on the Billboard 200 following its March 2002 release, features fan favorite tracks like “Drunken Lullabies,” “If I Ever Leave This World Alive,” “Rebels of the Sacred Heart,” and “Swagger.”

Anti-Flag, a politically charged punk rock band hailing from Pittsburgh, will release forthcoming full-length, American Fall, on Nov. 3 via Spinefarm Records. The album, which was partially produced by Good Charlotte’s Benji Madden, was preceded by the single “American Attraction.”

This year marked the fifth anniversary of Anti-Flag’s eighth LP, The General Strike. The album, released in January 2012 on SideOneDummy Records, featured the single “This is the New Sound.”

Opening the show will be John Snodgrass, a member of Drag the River, Armchair Martian and Scorpios. The musician, who performs solo as John Snodgrass & Friends, released a 7-inch last fall via Hometown Caravan. The single contains two cuts, “1-2-3-4” and “Perfect Match.” More Buddies, More Fun, Snodgrass’ most recent full-length was released on Paper + Plastick in 2012.

Tickets for the all ages event ($36 in advance, $40 day of show) are available here at AXS.com. Starland Ballroom is located at 570 Jernee Mill Road in Sayreville, N.J. For more information, visit Flogging Molly’s website and Starland Ballroom’s website.
