The Scottish rock band is set to return with their first album in four years. Franz Ferdinand last released new material in 2009 with their acclaimed Tonight. That album has a unique edge for the band, with some colorful songs that let their personality shine a little more. Regardless, Franz Ferdinand has always been entertaining, whether it be with these head scratchers or their immediate, catchy anthems.
The new album is titled Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Actions and will be released August 7th. The band has been performing new material live over the past few years, and as Consequence of Sound has pointed out, the complete album has already been unveiled live. Props to them for gathering the performances; check there for a preview of the new studio material to come.
