Franz Ferdinand – new album out, 2009 tour dates (Roseland)

Franz Ferdinand @ October Diesel Party (more by Kyle Dean Reinford)
Franz Ferdinand

Franz Ferdinand‘s third album has had a difficult gestation. Before Kylie collaborator Dan Carey took the production helm, there were abortive sessions with the eclectic DJ and producer Erol Alkan, talk of African influences and, most intriguing, an attempt to work with Girls Aloud‘s visionary production team Xenomania. Alas, the latter collapsed owing to the kind of musical differences you suspect may have involved Franz Ferdinand recognising their own limitations. You might talk a good fight about wanting to make music that makes girls dance, but you don’t know how indie you really are until you get in the studio with someone who actually makes girls dance for a living.

This is unmistakably the behaviour of musicians who know a sonic overhaul is needed.” [Guardian]

Franz Ferdinand‘s new album Tonight: Franz Ferdinand was released on January 27th. On April 17th the band will be playing Coachella. On May 7th they’ll play Roseland Ballroom in NYC. Tickets for the large venue show go on Ticket Rush presale on Friday at 10am and then regular sale 24 hours later.
