Franz Ferdinand is a smashing success in the US and abroad. The quartet has been compared to bands like Interpol, and they have a similar Indie rock style. The band's music is greatly influenced by their love of art and they at one time held raucous art parties in their practice space, The Chateau. If you get Franz Ferdinand's concert tickets you will get to experience what an energetic and volatile party they throw when they play live
The band formed in Glasgow, Scotland. Its members are Nick McCarthy (guitarist), Bob Hardy (bassist), Paul Thompson (drummer) and Alex Kapranos (singer/guitarist). When they released the single 'Take Me Out' it became popular all over the world including in the US. Other songs like 'Michael,' 'The Dark of the Matinee,' 'This Fire' and 'Darts of Pleasure' were all top ten hits in the UK.
Franz Ferdinand's self-titled first album opened at number three on the UK charts and won the Mercury Music Prize, a yearly award for the best British or Irish album, in 2004.
Their single 'Take Me Out' finally reached 32 on the Billboard charts after the wide circulation of the critically acclaimed video for the song.
They have toured feverishly and have become very popular with concert-goers for their dark mix of brooding melodies and witty lyrics. Franz Ferdinand's intoxicating guitars are a pleasure to hear live. So if you are an art rock fan or have loved them since their first release, you must buy Franz Ferdinand tickets.
