Molly Hatchet firmly cemented their place in music history in the late seventies. They stood alongside other iconic Southern rock bands out of Jacksonville, Florida, such as Lynyrd Skynyrd and the Allman Brothers. A perfect mixture of English invasion rock, blues, country, and gospel remains the unique sound of Molly Hatchet.
They were the hardest hitting of the Southern rock bands at the time when, in 1978, Epic Records released Molly Hatchet’s self-titled debut album. It reached multi-platinum status, and the band established their reputation of working hard, playing tough and living fast through intense touring. During this time, they were on the road with Aerosmith, Bob Seger, The Rolling Stones, and many others.
In 1979, Molly Hatchet’s second album Flirtin’ with Disaster was released, and it also quickly achieved multi-platinum status. It skyrocketed the band into the stratosphere and performing an average of two hundred and fifty shows per year kept them busy
Molly Hatchet celebrated their 40th anniversary with a world tour and the release of the double CD and triple vinyl live album titled Battleground. Recorded in both Germany and Switzerland on the SPV/Steamhammer label and featuring cover art by famed artist Paul Raymond Gregory (Dio, Uriah Heep, Saxon), Battleground has garnered rave reviews by their loyal fans, as well as the national and international press.
According to Bobby Ingram, “In recording this album, we compiled a four-decade long catalog of songs that our friends wanted to hear. They would tell us what songs they wanted on the album, and we would record them. Some of these songs have never been recorded on a live stage before, and we were honored and proud to be able to perform them for many generations of past, present, and future Southern rock fans.”
After forty plus years Molly Hatchet is still workin’ hard, playin’ tough, livin’ fast, and Flirtin’ with Disaster!!!
