The popular Scottish rock act first rose to prominence with their excellent 2004 eponymous debut. The album spawned five singles and helped the band capture the 2004 Mercury Prize, and the Best Group and Best British Rock Act at the 2005 Brit Awards. The disc was also included on Pitchfork’s “The Top 200 Albums of the 2000s” list and in The Guardian’s “1000 Albums to Hear before You Die” feature. The quartet showcased the infectious, punchy post-punk anthems from their first album and 2005’s equally praised “You Could Have It So Much Better” when they appeared as a headliner in 2006 at Korea’s inaugural Incheon Pentaport Rock Festival. Here’s some live footage from that gig:
This past summer, the group issued their fourth full-length, “Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action.” NME gave the disc an 8/10 ranking and said the album “might be their best ever.” November has the band playing throughout Australia and Asia in support of their latest offering, which means more than seven years after playing at Pentaport, Franz Ferdinand will finally be performing in Korea again. Here’s “Right Action,” the lead single from “Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action.”
Franz Ferdinand play at Uniqlo-AX (near Gwangnaru Station) on Thursday, November 28. The show starts at 8 pm and tickets cost from 88,000 won. Advanced tickets can be purchased in English here and in Korean here.
