Franz Ferdinand have announced they will play at seven tiny venues across the UK this month.

The low-key tour will include stops at The Point in Cardiff, Thekla in Bristol and the Hull Adelphi, all venues similar in spirit to the band’s tour of the highlands and islands last year.

The band will be previewing songs from their new album, which they are in the process of recording at their hideaway in Glasgow.

The dates are:
York Fibbers (June 21)
Hull Adelphi (22)
Bristol Thekla (24)
Bath Moles (25)
Yeovil The Orange Box (26)
Cardiff The Point (28)
Leeds Faversham (29)

Tickets for the shows are priced at £15 and will be available from the venues on Friday 6th June 2008 at 9am and will be limited to two per person.
