Society 1 Announces New Guitarist, Eric Franklin

After trying out guitarists for several months, Society 1 has just announced they have found a new guitarist. Los Angeles native Eric Franklin will be joining Matt "The Lord" Zane, Dirt, and Sic Rik on guitars. You can view video of Eric Franklin in action at Ultimate-Guitar.com.

Raised by his parents on Beethoven, Bach and the Star Wars Soundtrack, guitarist Eric Franklin started his musical journey on the piano at age six. Taught by Juilliard graduate Emilia Guastella, Eric studied classical music for 6 years. By the age of 12 however, hearing the sounds of Black Sabbath, Van Halen, Guns N’ Roses and Led Zeppelin blast from his sister’s stereo, Eric eventually craved to learn music of a louder persuasion and his longing to play the guitar could not be stopped.

Eric’s first public show will be on Dave Navarro’s Spread Entertainment which will air Aug 8 on maniatv.com. Society 1 recently released “Live and Raw” exclusively through iTunes.

As previously reported, Society 1 has been in the studio this summer recording its fifth studio album due out in 2009 at NRG Studio's with producer Wade Norton.

This band sucks, seriously.
The only cool thing about them is the singer hangs himself from meat hooks
