Since their formation in 2002 Glaswegians Alex, Bob, Nick and Paul have been one of the stand out live acts of their generation. Franz Ferdinand’s self titled debut album, containing the hit singles Take Me Out, The Dark of the Matinée and This Fire, won the 2004 Mercury Music Prize. The band followed this up with two BRIT awards and an NME award for Album of the Year. The following year the bands sophomore album You Could Have it So Much Better topped the UK album charts and was a top ten hit on the Billboard 200 in the US. Franz Ferdinand’s third record Tonight: Franz Ferdinand had even more success in the US reaching #9 on the Billboard charts.
