New amazing album "Work Is The Curse Of The Drinking Class" out now!
Finnegan's Hell has spawned a new subgenre within Celtic punk and folk rock by adding influences from hard rock, hillbilly country and Swedish folk. What the press has labeled "The New Wave Of Swedish Celtic Punk", takes no prisoners. With the focus on great melodies and sing-alongs, Finnegan's Hell has outdone themselves on their third full-lenght album. "Work Is The Curse Of The Drinking Class" has all the features of a classic album - this is a contemporary alternative to "If I Should Fall From Grace With God" by The Pogues.
Finnegan's Hell is the most exiting Celtic punk and folk rock band to emerge on the European scene in recent years. Mixing Ramones flavored Celtic drinking anthems with hillbilly country, folk rock and metal, Finnegan's Hell offers a diverse listening experience. The band's patented sound along with the intense and entertaining live shows of these sharp-dressed gentlemen, makes Finnegan's Hell a real crowd pleaser. It is no surprise that the group was voted "best foreign band" by the audience at massive Woodstock Festival in Poland in 2015.
The band's career started with the release of the EP "The Molly Maguires" in 2011, the title track of which became a Youtube hit and put the band on the European Celtic punk and folk rock map. Shortly thereafter Finnegan's hell caught the attention of the media when releasing the song "Drunken Christmas", which in 2013 was voted "Christmas song of the year" by the readers of Sweden's biggest music magazine; GAFFA. The band followed up on the success by signing to Heptown Records, releasing their first full-length album, "Drunk, Sick And Blue", in 2014. Internationally the album was well-received and Paddy Rock Radio rated "Drunk, Sick And Blue" as one of the best folk rock releases of the year.
After releasing critically acclaimed "Life And Death" in 2018, Finnegan's Hell was signed by Wild Kingdom Records and the result of this new co-operation is the band's strongest album to date. "Work Is The Curse Of The Drinking Class" is fast and furious with many a drinking anthem to sing along to, but it is also an album with some of the heaviest songs Finnegan's Hell has ever recorded. The influence of classic rock and heavy metal will not pass you by. Finnegan's Hell has a sound which is uniquely the band's own.
