The third annual Fireball – Fuelling The Fire Tour brings together a riotous four band bill of punk rock royalty headlined by the Irish American legends Flogging Molly. Formed in 1997, the Celtic inspired seven piece have released several acclaimed albums sticking to their unique pile driving formula, a unholy mix of Pogueish charm, Johnny Cash style and hardcore thrash.
Flogging Molly’s boisterous noise is incredible live. Classics such as ‘Salty Dog’, ‘Cruel Mistress’, and ‘Seven Deadly Sins’ are heaving sweaty singalong anthems, but they do folk subtlety just as well – check out the poignant reflection of ‘The Likes of You Again’ from debut album Swagger for proof.
The line up is completed by a double dose of Californian Hardcore from The Bronx and Face to Face, with Scottish up and comers Lost In Stereo and Birmingham’s very own Wood & Nails getting things started. The four acts are set to play a series of dates throughout the UK, including at the O2 Academy, Birmingham on Wednesday 12th December.
