The shows follow their recent gig at The Victoria pub in Dalston, London.
Announced the evening before, well over 500 people were unable to get into the packed pub-backroom show which saw the band play through a number of tracks from their forthcoming album, Right Words, Right Thoughts, Right Action which is released through Domino on August 26th.
The exuberant, unencumbered record is the first from the Glasgow band since 2009's Tonight. They seem to have rediscovered the imagination, vitality and fun found on their classic, era-encapsulating debut Franz Ferdinand.
Recorded over the last year at Kapranos's Scottish studio, McCarthy's Sausage Studios in London, Club Ralph and a couple of trips to Stockholm and Oslo, the LP cements their status as a unique and adventurous British band: emboldened by a decade's undreamt-of worldwide success, but still daring and defiant.
Franz Ferdinand are still Alex Kapranos, Nick McCarthy, Bob Hardy and Paul Thomson. There's still no one like them.
Details of the intimate shows are as follows:
20th London Brixton Electric
21st Glasgow QMU
