Trending Now

Franz Ferdinand closed the main stage at Latitude festival tonight (July 18).

Thousands of fans turned out in the rain to see the Scottish band play a set of hit songs from their first two albums, Franz Ferdinand and You Could Have It So Much Better including “Jacqueline”, “The Dark of the Matinee”, “Do You Want To” and “Take Me Out”, which got the biggest reaction and prompted the first sing along of the night.

The band also premiered new tracks from their forthcoming record, “Kathryn Kiss Me”, “Ulysses”, “Turn It On” and “What She Came For”, which included lead singer Alex Kapranos playing the keyboards and synths.

They have recently completed a mini tour of the UK premiering the new material at intimate venues.
