Glasgow, Scotland's Franz Ferdinand are back this fall with a new album, Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action, which guitarist Nick McCarthy recorded with a very cool Epiphone 1966 Worn Wilshire
. "Sonically, it’s a return to why we started the band in the first place, really," McCarthy told Vita.mn. "Have fun and make girls dance." It's been four years since the last album ("We just took some time off — that was all, really") and the long break seems to have given the band a fresh spirit. Franz Ferdinand are doing a few dates in the US this month (including Austin City Limits) before heading to Australia and Tokyo. Look for a world tour in 2014.
