About Flatfoot 56

Formed in 2000 by siblings Tobin (vocals/guitar), Justin (drums), and Kyle Bawinkel (bass), Chicago-based Celtic punk outfit Flatfoot 56 grew from a straight-up punk trio to a hard-hitting, Flogging Molly/Dropkick Murphys-inspired Oi! rock outfit with the additions of Highland piper Eric McMahon and mandolin/guitar player Brandon Good. The band released its debut album, Rumble of 56, in 2002, with Waves of War arriving the following year. Released in 2004, Knuckles Up became Flatfoot 56's biggest seller yet, while 2007’s Jungle of the Midwest Sea and 2010’s Black Thorn helped to further cement their reputation as one of the genre’s most spirited and electrifying champions. ~ James Christopher Monger
