Franz Ferdinand release their new single next month.

All eyes will be on ‘Matinee’ to see whether it can match the chart success of 'Take Me Out’ when it’s released on April 19.

Though the specific tracks have yet to be confirmed, the single will come backed with two acoustic versions of tracks from the band’s album.

Many of the dates on the band’s forthcoming UK tour have been upgraded due to demand. The dates now run as follows:
