FRANZ FERDINAND RELEASE TWO SINGLES FROM UPCOMING ALBUM

FRANZ FERDINAND RELEASE TWO SINGLES FROM UPCOMING ALBUM

Joe GransingerMonday,1 July 2013

The Snap:

Franz Ferdinand recently announced their fourth studio album – Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action – which is due out August 27th of this year.  The band recently released the first two singles, Right Action and Love Illumination, which thankfully sound just like Franz Ferdinand should. The Scotland-based group will also kick off their international tour in August.

The Download:

The first single and title track, Right Action, picks up where their previous albums had left off.  With a fun vibe, catchy lyrics, and an occasional set of “doo doo dooo’s,” it presents Franz Ferdinand in their purest and most enjoyable form.

The second single, Love Illumination, features a fuzzy electric guitar riff and fast paced vocals that carry throughout the song. It offers a good change of speed, and the variation between the two tracks could be an indicator that Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action will be quite diverse with it’s song structure.

Current fans will love the new music, as the groups style and sound hasn’t changed very much over the years. And that’s not a bad thing, especially when so many new bands lack any definitive characteristics to separate themselves from each other.  I’m glad that Franz Ferdinand has been unaffected by what is “trendy” and “popular”, and they continue to produce the music that they have built their career upon.

It’s shaping up to be an exciting second half of 2013, with Franz Ferdinand joining Modest Mouse, Nine Inch Nails, and Arctic Monkeys with scheduled album releases.

Take Action!
