More Info:

Franz Ferdinand frontman Alex Kapranos announced that the band had completed its third album, titled Tonight, at an intimate show at the Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn. The record has been meticulously road tested in intimate venues and finds the band evolving its post-punk sound to encompass funk and R&B influences.


2009 release, the third album from Glasgow-based modern rockers. Tonight: Franz Ferdinand sees them taking a step back from the Post-Punk revival sounds that gave them their breakthrough. With Tonight: Franz Ferdinand, the band are seen to incorporate more disparate influences such as Jamaican Dub and elements of Electronica. What remains of the old Franz Ferdinand is their knack for locating a danceable rhythm and their gentle, deadpan humour. The choice of Dan Carey as producer is in keeping with this new direction, the past credits of whose include CSS and Hot Chip.
