Flogging Molly frontman Dave King spoke with Australia’s Time Off magazine about the comparisons people make to fellow Celtic-punk band The Dropkick Murphys. “You’re always going to get that, but that’s people being lazy, being complacent,” King insisted. “You’ve got to take what you listen to and you’ve got to discover the source, and the source to us is just passion. That’s all we’re concerned with. Every band gets comparisons.” The article at timeoff.com.au has since been removed.
