Since breaking out into the mainstream music industry in 2004 with a smash it called Take Me Out, Franz Ferdinand has become
one of the best known of the so-called post-punk revival bands. Ferdinand lends a modern take to the twitchy energy of classic
post-punk, making their brand of pop music both fun and danceable. If you haven't had the chance to see them live, get concert tickets today to do so!
Named after the archduke whose assassination set off the first World War, Franz Ferdinand developed an appropriately explosive
sound to their own music. Their self-titled debut album was the year's best when it was released in 2004, with many critics
billing it as the arrival of a singular new talent. What makes them especially enjoyable is that they embrace hip-swaying
rhythms tinged with their snarky punk sound. To experience Franz Ferdinand live, ensure you get your tickets in advance right

Hailing from Glasgow, Scotland, Franz Ferdinand eclipsed the U.K. charts with their hit, Take Me Out. Their premiere self-titled
album also made a splash on the U.K. album chart, landing at No. 3. In 2004, the band went on to claim the Mercury Music Prize.
They won two BRIT awards in 2004 for Best British Rock Act and Best British Group. Additionally, NME named their Franz Ferdinand
album, Album of the Year, which had generated three Top 10 singles, The Dark of the Matinee, Take Me Out and This Fire. Their
sophomore album, You Could Have It So Much Better (2005) embraced a platinum-selling status in the U.K. and gold-selling status
in the U.S. The album charted the U.K. album charts and earned a spot on the Top 10 in the Billboard 200 in the U.S. The hit
single, Do You Want To, came off this album as well. Their album, Tonight: Franz Ferdinand, was released globally in 2009,
and also landed on the Top 10 in the U.S. and the U.K.
