Franz Ferdinand's third album, Tonight: Franz Ferdinand, just came out in January, but the Glasgow foursome has already planned a follow-up: A dub version of the same record, entitled Blood, stated to hit stores June 1 via Domino Records.
The tracks were mixed by producer Dan Carey (Hot Chip, CSS, Lily Allen), and were earlier available in deluxe, box-set editions of Tonight. Perhaps our own Nick Marino will find these more danceable versions slightly less insufferable than the originals.
In the meantime, the band is out on the road. Dates below:
24 - Dallas, Texas @ House of Blues
25 - Austin, Texas @ La Zona Rosa
27 - Kansas City, Mo. @ The Beaumont Club
28 - Minneapolis, Minn. @ First Avenue
29 - Milwaukee, Wisc. @ Eagles Ballroom
30 - Chicago, Ill. @ Riviera Theatre
2 - Columbus, Ohio @ Newport Music Hall
3 - Pontiac, Mich. @ Clutch Cargo’s
4 - Toronto, Ontario @ Kool Haus
6 - Philadelphia, Pa. @ Electric Factory
7 - New York, N.Y. @ Roseland Ballroom
