Celtic punk band Flogging Molly will perform at the Eagles Ballroom on Aug. 5, on the back of the new album, "Speed of Darkness."

Written over a three-month stay in Detroit, the album focuses on the U.S. economic collapse and the struggles average Americans face in dealing with it. 

The band is known for its crowd-rocking live performances and energetic audiences.

Tickets are on sale now and are available through Ticketmaster or The Rave's box office.
