Franz Ferdinand released their fifth album ‘‘Always Ascending’ in February.

After a selection of festival appearances this summer, Franz Ferdinand will hit London’s Roundhouse on September 26 in support of their latest record.


“We wanted to take the sounds that are available to us now and make the sound that you haven’t heard before – the sound of the future,” frontman Alex Kapranos told NME of their approach to their latest album.

“When you’re recording in 2017 you need to be looking ahead to the next thing. What haven’t people even heard in 2018? In terms of ‘naturalistic’, it’s not retrogressive but it’s about trying to make something that feels like it’s being played by humans.”
