Flogging Molly have revealed plans for their annual 7th “Green 17” tour. The Irish punk rockers from Los Angeles will make their way to Massachusetts for a show at the House of Blues in Boston on Sunday, February 27. Tickets for the show will go on sale Saturday at 10 a.m. through Live Nation for $29.50 and $39.50.

At the shows, the band will be performing material off their forthcoming fifth album, which the band is currently working on. Flogging Molly spent the last three months in Detroit, Michigan writing songs for the follow up to their acclaimed 2008 release Float, which debuted at #4 on the Billboard Top 200, #1 on the Billboard Independent Albums Chart and #2 on the Billboard Alternative Album Chart. The band is now recording the new songs with producer Ryan Hewitt (Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Avett Brothers) in Asheville, North Carolina.

The Green 17 Tour was born in 2004 as a countdown to St Patrick‚Äôs Day with a performance celebration in each city leading to the holiday. Prior to the band’s show in Boston, Flogging Molly will perform at Lupo’s Heartbreak Hotel in Providence, Rhode Island on Tuesday, February 22 and the State Theatre in Portland, Maine on Saturday, February 26. Special guests for the tour are expected to be announced shortly.
