Franz Ferdinand announce North American summer tour

Scottish rockers embark on their first extended outing in three years

    Franz Ferdinand are confirmed to perform at a trio of US festivals this summer: Hangout Music Festival in Gulf Shores, AL; NYC’s Governors Ball Music Festival; and Firefly Music Festival in Dover, DE. Now, to accompany these festival gigs, the alternative rockers have mapped out their first extended tour in three years. See the full schedule below.

    The tour marks Franz Ferdinand’s first outing as a three-piece following the departure of guitarist Mike McCarthy last summer.

    Prior to hitting the road with Franz Ferdinand, frontman Alex Kapranos will release an album with his new supergroup, BNQT. Entitled Volume 1, it’s due for release on April 28th and is preceded by its opening track/first single, “Restart”.
