Franz Ferdinand: Right Direction

After seemingly vanishing from the radar, Scottish alternative rock band Franz Ferdinand are back with a fourth album. Titled Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action, this release is the first since 2009’s Tonight: Franz Ferdinand, and while it’s more mature, it has the same indie/dance rock sound as their previous LPs. They will be promoting their new record with a world tour, stopping locally at the Tower Theater in Philadelphia on Oct. 19 and the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City on Oct. 22.
