Franz Ferdinand Biography
Scottish indie rockers Franz Ferdinand formed in 2002, with Alex Kapranos as lead vocalist / guitarist, Bob Hardy on bass, Nick McCarthy on guitar and Paul Thomson on drums.
Their second single 'Take Me Out' was a huge hit, as was their eponymous debut album. They won the 2004 Mercury Music Prize and two BRIT Awards. Second album 'You Could Have It So Much Better' reached the top of the UK Album Charts, and 2013 saw the release of their fourth studio album 'Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action'.
Alex Kapranos has told Radio X he is surprised by how young their audience can be considering their début celebrates ten years in 2014.
