The Franklys play rock 'n' roll the way it’s meant to be - loud, raw, dirty, fast and furious, and they open up for the Australian rockers Airbourne on five of their UK dates this week. “We can’t think of a single thing coming out of Australia that we don’t like, including this band, so pretty sure we’re gonna get on just fine. Might have a bit of competition with the hair though as they sure have some healthy looking locks!”
To celebrate the tour, The Franklys release the first single from their forthcoming debut album; the frantic and blistering ‘Castaway’ on December 2nd. The full-on video supporting the single “was a no-brainer, as ‘Castaway’ is a live song. We have mixed clips from different shows we’ve done over the year, also introducing our newest member Lexi Clark.”
“We have finally managed to transfer how we sound live on to a record. We have worked with plenty of different engineers and producers in the past, but no one has really been able to capture the rawness from our live show.” Recorded and mixed with producer Sean Douglas, the result is thrillingly clear and direct.
The Franklys play a mixture of garage, heavy rock and punk and provide their audience with an action packed live show full of energy, frenetic guitar riffs and a swarm of blurred hair. Their debut album will hit stores in spring 2017, and until then they are going out to do what they do best, with the promise to those attending the Airbourne dates to “expect some bad neck-pains the day after from waaaay too much head banging”.
