Why See Franz Ferdinand?
UK Indie Heroes
While the rock boom of the early 00s was led by The Strokes in the States, over in the UK it was spearheaded by swarthy Scottish four piece Franz Ferdinand. Arriving with a lightning bolt of jagged, post-punk riffs, and come-hither lyrics, their 2004 debut record was an instant classic, gifting the world tracks like 'Michael', 'Tell Her Tonight' and the indie-disco standard 'Take Me Out'.
Following their more experimental third record Tonight, which was met with a rather muted reception by fans and critics, Franz made a triumphant return with 2013's Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action, and are currently hard at work on their follow-up. Catch Alex Kapranos and the boys one tour, where you might just hear some new material, when they hit in , , .
