With five years between albums, expectations for Anthem were high, with the band delivering a quintessentially rollicking, and heartfelt, collection. Brooklyn Vegan said Anthem is “a ripper,” New Noise said Anthem easily satisfies expectations the Celtic-inspired punks have built over a decades-long career,” and American Songwriter triumphantly declared, “Flogging Molly is back.” The band released four videos in support of Anthem, including the timely track and clip for “A Song of Liberty,” penned by King as a recounting of a dark period in Irish history but made all the more relevant with events in Ukraine. The Mad Twins, Ukrainian animators/filmmakers, created the stirring video.
