TO ROCK LI
Celtic punk band Flogging Molly
has been blending traditional Irish
sounds with socially conscious
rock since 1997.
They’ll be bringing their frenetic
live act to Long Island in support
of their new album, Life is Good.
Guitarist Dennis Casey took a
moment off from their world tour
to talk about living on LI, the new
album, and the state of music.
Do you have any favorite places
out here? My favorite place is Long
Beach. Reminds me of California.
Can you tell me a bit about the
newest album? I always like to say
a record is like a document of the
band at this point in our career.
How do you find the musical
landscape today as opposed to
20-something years ago when
Flogging Molly began? The old
days are not coming back so I don’t
think someone should really wish
or try to make that happen at this
point in their careers. Putting out
a great live show is very important.
