Franz Ferdinand star goes solo

Franz Ferdinand guitarist Nick McCarthy has announced details of his side project's album.

Box Codax, which features the star and bandmate Alexander Ragnew, are set to release their debut LP, 'Only An Orchard Away', on September 4.

The duo also promise to release a new EP every six months.

The pair first met when they were introduced to each other as teenagers in a club in Munich run by McCarthy's brother, however shortly afterwards Ragnew moved to Toulouse and McCarthy to Glasgow.

Their collaborations continued at distance, and were eventually paused when Franz Ferdinand took off.

It's understood Box Codax are currently planning live dates for later this year.
