Franz Ferdinand parts ways with guitarist Nick McCarthy

Nick McCarthy with FFS, 2015 (more by PSquared)

We’re sad to report that Franz Ferdinand founding guitarist Nick McCarthy is parting ways with the band. Franz Ferdinand posted this on their Facebook this morning:


On the plus side, it all sounds super amicable with an open door for the future. On the negative side, Nick McCarthy was essential to the sound of Franz Ferdinand, bringing a manic energy, and unique guitar/vocal style that will be hard to replicate. Hopefully Nick will continue to make music as Box Codax.
