Speed Of Darkness, the follow-up to 2008's Float, is Celtic punk ensemble Flogging Molly's fifth and arguably most important album. Produced by Ryan Hewitt (RHCP, The Avett Brothers) the album was written in Detroit, MI, and takes a hard-nosed look at the economic collapse in the US along with the causes and direct effect it has had on everyday people. The Motor City serves as the album's muse and a painful example of what has gone wrong. While Speed Of Darkness attacks much of the greed and ignorance responsible for where we are, the album also delivers a message of hope, humanity, and resilience of mankind.
