In anticipation of their new album, Hoist the Colors – the seven-piece Irish- and American-folk influenced punk band from Los Angeles – is streaming “Shackles and Chains,” a track off their new record Miles To Go Before We Sleep. The hard-hitting song is an ode to breaking free from the things that hold us down, and its uplifting chorus and soaring gang vocals show off the band’s punk rock roots.

About Hoist the Colors:
Hailing from the urban sprawl of Los Angeles, Hoist the Colors plays a blend of punk rock, traditional Irish music, Americana, and bluegrass that is as eclectic and original as the city they call home. Their signature sound features a mix of traditional (mandolin, banjo, and fiddle) and rock instruments (drums, guitar, bass) that appeals to fans of punk rock, folk music, and everything in between. The seven-piece band is set to release their second studio album, entitled Miles to go Before We Sleep. Hoist the Colors’ debut album, Second City, is currently available for purchase on iTunes and available for streaming on Rhapsody and Spotify. For fans of The Pogues, Chuck Ragan, and Flogging Molly.
