Wasting no time, the band threw themselves into relentless touring, extending their reach across the UK, Europe and America. After performances at Isle of Wight and Download festivals, they completed the circuit of O2 venues in the UK opening up for Airbourne. The Franklys went on to feature in an Apple Music advert, exclusively aired during The Brit Awards 2017, and released their debut album 'Are You Listening?' later that same year. The release of their single 'Castaway' from the album was described as 'the best thing they've done to date' by Steve Lamacq of BBC 6 Music.
The band have built a reputation in London and beyond as a 'must see' live band, combining dark and heavy riffs with frenetic and dynamic on stage performances.
2018 saw The Franklys complete four European tours alongside various UK dates, and record a new EP due for release in early 2019.
