Franz Ferdinand are doing some touring in Europe and the UK this summer, but they’ll be without longtime drummer Paul Thompson. According to the band, he was injured when his finger was “crushed by an ugly piece of art” in a hotel lobby in Casablanco, Morocco, resulting in his bone being “splintered into small pieces.” He’ll be replaced at the band’s upcoming shows by Mike Evans.

Get better soon, Paul!
