THE FRANKLYS are back with a killer brand new EP and they're unveiling the first track exclusively with Vive Le Rock!

'Not Guilty' is taken from the EP Framed, which is set for release on 5 April.

The band tell us that, “lyrically, the record takes a look at the current state of the world’s affairs, whether that be on a small scale, such as in ‘Small Town, Small Talk’, or on much wider reaching issues. For example, ‘Mayday’ takes a swipe at the massive mess of the Brexit vote and its subsequent fallout. The songs deal with an increasing obsession with gossip, news and a lack of empathy fuelled by portrayals of unobtainable perfection found on some social media.”

Having completed no fewer than four European tours in 2018, the band return to the road this Spring, kicking off with four UK shows - including a London album launch - before heading to Germany, Austria and The Netherlands. Full dates are...
