Franz Ferdinand’s Right Thoughts, Right Tour Dates

With two weekends of Austin City Limits appearances already booked, it would have been a shame if Franz Ferdinand didn’t add any extra North American gigs. Fortunately, the Scottish indie rockers made the right choice and announced more than a dozen October headline dates.    

Franz Ferdinand’s fourth studio album – Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action – is due out Aug. 27. Tickets for the North American headline dates come with a digital copy of the LP, available on release day.
