Franz Ferdinand Announce details of exclusive London Scala show.

Franz Ferdinand have announced details of a special one off London Scala show on Monday 12th September 2005. This will be an exclusive gig for Radio 1 competition winners. Competition details will be announced on Radio 1 throughout the week of September 5th.

Alternatively, the show will be broadcast live on September 12th on Lamacq Live at 9pm.

Radio 1 DJ Steve Lamacq says. “It’s great to have Franz back on the show. They recorded their first live radio session for us back in September 2003 and it will be pretty interesting to hear some of their new songs in a pretty intimate setting. Having seen them in a tiny dive a couple of years ago, and then at last year’s festivals, you can tell ho their confidence has grown. – and from what I hear from the new album, I think they’ll be unstoppable in the run up to Christmas.”

The band will be releasing their second album, You Could Have It So Much Better, through Domino Records on October 3rd. This will be preceded by the single, Do You Want To, on September 19th.

The band have also just announced a full UK tour in November. The dates are as follows:
