Having just played two low-key shows at Glasgow's QMU and The Electric in Brixton, London, Franz Ferdinand have announced details of a full UK tour in 2014.
The band are set to drop a Halloween themed new single, 'Evil Eye', on Monday the 28th of October 2013 from their fourth studio album 'Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action released last month.
The single is available as a one-track download and is accompanied by a video very much inspired the 'horror theme' of the song title, or in frontman Alex's words, "The video is a gruesome blood orgy eye stab death romp wide-oh creep necro fest, play this on the telly if you dare you fuckers."
The band will play the following dates:
