Check out all of their upcoming tour dates below, followed by the video for the album’s lead single and title track, “Always Ascending.”

Pick up Under the Radar’s current Spring 2018 print issue to read our interview with Franz Ferdinand.

Read our review of Franz Ferdinand’s Always Ascending.

Previously they shared its fun and dance-y title track, “Always Ascending,” as well as a video for the song, plus the album’s second single, “Feel the Love Go,” as well as its third single “Lazy Boy.” They also stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to perform “Always Ascending.” Then they did a session for SiriusXM where they covered Angel Olsen‘s “Shut Up Kiss Me,” from her fantastic 2016 album, MY WOMAN.

Always Ascending was recorded at RAK Studios in London and Motorbass in Paris, with French producer Philippe Zdar (Cassius, Phoenix, The Beastie Boys). The current lineup of the band is Alex Kapranos (vocals, guitar), Bob Hardy (bass), Paul Thomson (drums), Julian Corrie (keyboards, guitar), and Dino Bardot (guitar). Kapranos refers to the sound of the album as “simultaneously futuristic and naturalistic.”
