Franz Ferdinand recently announced the release of their new album Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action (Domino) on August 27th Following a string of truly triumphant performances in California in April, the much loved Scottish four-piece will be returning to the U.S. this fall for multiple live dates throughout the country.  In addition to this year’s Austin City Limits Festival, the band will be making stops at Chicago’s Vic Theatre on October 10th, Boston’s Orpheum Theatre on October 20th and at the Hammerstein Ballroom on October 22nd in New York City and more! Tickets go on sale in most markets on Friday at 10AM EST. Fans who purchase tickets for any of the North American headlining shows will receive a digital copy of the album on release day.

The band has also released a new behind the scenes video titled “A Weekend In Glasgow” featuring footage of the band in-studio recording the album track “Bullet”, as well as rehearsals, and clips from an intimate show at Mono, a café / record shop at the center of Glasgow’s music scene. PRESS HERE to watch.

This exuberant, unencumbered record is the first from the Glasgow band since 2009’s Tonight. In their time away, they’ve rediscovered the imagination, vitality and fun found on their classic, era-encapsulating debut Franz Ferdinand, an album that unequivocally conquered the planet with relentless charm and exquisite bravado. The ten songs that make up Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action take what propelled Franz Ferdinand from the incestuous Glasgow Art School world to, well, the entire world - painterly lyrical detail, heavyweight hooks, precise aesthetic vision and that uncanny ability to marry arch artistic sensibility with pop punch – and push it even further.
