Flogging Molly have always focused on the struggles of the working man in their Celtic-influenced punk rock, so it makes sense that they would turn in one of their best records yet in the wake of a worldwide economic downturn. On Speed of Darkness, the Los Angeles band's fifth studio album, the group speak up for those who have lost their jobs and speak against the greed of wealthy CEOs. "The power’s out, guess it’s par for the course / Unless you’re a bloodsucking leech CEO," frontman Dave King sings on the album highlight "The Power's Out." The album will hit stores on May 31st, but you can stream it in full now.
