We're coming up on the 10th anniversary of Franz Ferdinand's first single, "Darts of Pleasure," and the band have just announced details of their fourth studio album. Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action will be out on Domino on August 27. What can we expect? "The Intellect Vs The Soul, played out by some dumb band," says frontman Alex Kapranos.

The band's last LP was 2009's Tonight: Franz Ferdinand. While no tracks have been released from the new record, you can check out a teaser trailer, cover art and tracklist below.

Franz Ferdinand recently played Coachella and will hit October's ACL Fest in Austin. All upcoming tour dates are listed below.
