It feels good to be back at it again, like an old lover who fucked you better than anyone before or after” said Zane during a decadent signing party at the DSN Music complex in Malibu, CA. “Everyone has those moments when you resurrect and reinvent. This album Rise From The Dead is one of those moments.”

The comeback for Zane follows a hiatus during which he established a successful Hollywood career as a music video director, working on projects with such acts as Zakk Wylde, John 5, DMC, Wayne Static, and Orgy.

For me this isn’t so much of a return for the band but more a return of
my understanding of how necessary musical exploration is to my existence,” said Zane.

Society 1 gained a name for itself nationally for their wild stage antics,
including the Download Festival in 2005, where Zane broke several records by performing the entire set suspended from 4 meat hooks through his back.

Lord Zane is one of the most talented individuals you will ever come in
contact in our industry these days” said DSN President Guy Giuliano. “He has conquered every media platform, with a level of true professionalism, and he’s only really just getting started!

Rise From The Dead goes on sale worldwide March7, 2017 online and through all mobile outlets.

About the band:

Society 1 captures the essence of abuse, overkill and ultimate inspiration…”

One of the many quotes that describe what Society 1 has become since their inception. Love or hate what Society 1 stand for, no one can argue with the controversial recognition of this band. They have pushed limits that didn’t even exist prior to their existence.

LA Weekly described Lord Zane as an embodiment of “Morrisonesque shamanics and Satanic self-determination.”

“…as front man for the world-touring metal band Society 1, Zane took live performing to new heights by setting a world record as the first person to sing live before 40,000 people while suspended 30ft. off the stage by a series of steel hooks pierced through his back.” –The Metal Forge

“Few performers have offered up flesh and blood for their art like Matt Zane has.” – Dr. Abner Mality, Wormwood Chronicles

“… every show is so full of energy that I equate it to catching lighting in a bottle. Not only is it high energy, it drips with the sexiness of dirty Rock ‘n Roll mixed with the sound of grinding industrial metal.” –
