History[edit]

The band is a combination of two earlier Charlotte acts: Campbell the Band and Margolnick's solo work.[1] In late 2011, the band signed to Bright Antenna Records.[2]

The band toured with The Wombats in spring 2012. Reviewers noted the band's "power and emotion," coupled with their songs' "dreamlike quality."[3]

On May 8th, 2012 the band released their debut EP entitled blackbush available on iTunes and as a physical CD available at shows.[4]

Flagship's self-titled debut album was released on October 8th, 2013. The first song off the new album "Are You Calling" was premiered in a lyric video on the website Metrolyrics on July 12th, 2013.[5]
