It should be awesome. I saw them in Columbus, Ohio two weeks ago and they played a lot of the new album. Same feel as "within a mile" but all new and shiny. Paddy's Lament is amazing. Same quality songs and musicianship you'd expect from such a great band!
I shake more violently each day with anticipation. Every time I've seen them play, it's been nothing but brotherly love and cheers ('n beers) all around (with the exception of a few idiot beefcakes who miss the point entirely and get too aggro). Unfortunately, the only SoCal show they're playing any time soon is Coachella ($90 + Ticketbastard fees = $130) and they're not allowed to play in the area any time close to before and after that date. Screwed. Thanks for sharing.
Just received this album from Side One Dummy. DAMN!!! Only on the fifth song and love it already!! Great great CD as usual from these guys.
If I have one complaint it is this ... they don't come close enough to Minneapolis for me to see them AGAIN. Before I came up here I was fortunate enough to see them twice in San Diego within 4 months ... July 4th & SoCo Music Festival
I just saw Flogging Molly Saturday March 1, 2008 in Baltimore hours after getting the CD in the mail. Wow! The show was flawless. The new CD is really really good. A bit more mellow than Within A Mile of Home.
Is Dave King getting soft as the years pass? ;-) (just kidding.)
