Franz Ferdinand team up with Sparks to form FFS
New supergroup FFS, comprising Franz Ferdinand and Sparks, announce a European tour and tease new music
The two groups are heading off on a European tour in June, taking in France, Spain, Germany and Croatia as well as UK dates in Glasgow and London.
Brothers Ron and Russell Mael of 'This Town Ain't Big Enough for the Both of Us' fame are renowned for their quirky blend of different musical elements, including glam rock, electronica and new wave. Rocking on up to the scene in the early 70s, they've developed a distinctive performing style over the years, combining Russell's hyperactivity with Ron's unmoving sullenness.
Franz Ferdinand surged into our consciousness in 2004 with their self titled first album and went on to crank out hit after hit such as 'Take Me Out', 'The Dark of the Matinée' and 'Do You Want To'. Mixing indie rock, dance pop and post punk, they also make use of art school roots and throw a bit of Russian avant garde symbolism into their mix as well.
FFS have teased potential new music with a short video entitled 'The Domino Effect'. Watch it unfold below.
FFS play The Art School in Glasgow on Tue 16 Jun.
