Franz Ferdinand to hit the road for the first time in three years

Scottish indie-rockers Franz Ferdinand are to tour to again for the the first time since 2014. The band have announced a 19-date North American tour, despite not having released any new music since 2013’s ‘Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action‘. The group collaborated with Sparks under the FFS name in 2015 and toured the US, but this will be the first time that the group have toured under their own name since founding member Nick McCarthy left the band last year. The tour runs throughout May and June, with a few Canadian dates among the US ones. Franz Ferdinand are booked for a handful of European shows and festivals later this year, but there’s no news on an EU tour of this scale yet.
