Record of the Day – “Bad News” by The Franklys


Solid new release off of the upcoming EP, out April 27th. We did a Meet The Band with The Franklys a little over a year ago, since then , I’ve been checking their soundcloud for something new and here it is. Has a real rock beat throughout, pounding with cool riffs. Look forward to posting the whole EP…

The Franklys are a four piece rock ‘n’ roll band hailing from Sweden, the UK and the US. Following on from the brilliant ‘Puppet’ earlier in the year, this new track sees the band developing a recognised ‘sound’.

The release of Bad News will be followed by heavily touring around the UK and Europe, with festival shows at Tramlines Festival, Tannerfest and Stortford Music Festivals supporting The Undertones among others.
