Bio

Performing Both Weekends

Franz Ferdinand are Robert Hardy, Nick McCarthy, Paul Thomson, and Alex Kapranos.

Converging in 2001 they played some shows in friend's flats, art openings... They moved from a Deco warehouse building into practicing in an old jail cell to touring the world, picking up all sorts of awards(Ivor Novello, Mercury Music, Brits, MTV awards etc). In 2008 they went back to Glasgow, Scotland and set up a studio in an old town hall to record thier latest album.

Franz Ferdinand have successfully stuck to the original idea for the band which was to 'make girls dance' over the 3 albums and 8 years.

After signing with Domino in 2004, the band released their first record , self titled, Franz Ferdiannd, and then after long year of touring , their second record You Could Have It So Much Better(2006), they had some more time of touring and then a much needed break. At the start of 2009 the band released their third albium to date- Tonight: FranzFerdinand.
