Franz For The Olympia
Franz Ferdinand are back with a new album, Always Ascending, which drops through Domino on February 8.
The title-track is a Scott Walker goes disco stomper, which makes us realise just how much we’ve missed the Glaswegian scamps.
It’s their first studio outing with new boys Julian Corrie and Dino Bardot in the ranks, and takes them to Leisureland, Galway (February 10) and Olympia Theatre, Dublin (11). The full track-listing is: ‘Always Ascending’, ‘Lazy Boy’, ‘Paper Cages’, ‘Finally’, ‘The Academy Award’, ‘Lois Lane’, ‘Huck And Jim’, ‘Glimpse Of Love’, ‘Feel The Love Go’ and ‘Slow Don’t Kill Me Slow’.
Needless to say, we’ll be talking to them early in the New Year.
