Franz Ferdinand Expand Summer Schedule with West Coast Tour, Add Vancouver Show
Franz Ferdinand debuted a slew of new live songs earlier this year, but there's still no word as to when the Scottish outfit will drop their next album. While we wait for updates about that long-awaited new LP, the group have fleshed out their summer schedule.

The group's summer plans involve hitting up an array of festivals, mostly in Europe. They will also be making their way over to North America for a couple of weeks in August. In addition to playing a handful of festivals (including Osheaga in Montreal), they will play a few gigs on the West Coast. This run of dates includes an appearance at Vancouver's Commodore Ballroom on August 8.

See the schedule below, and go here to check out some of the live tunes that you might hear at the shows.
