COUNTDOWN: 12 Days to Outside Lands – Franz Ferdinand

July 29. 2012 | By Justine Fields

For any child of the early naughts, Franz Ferdinand is not the archduke of Austria whose death was grounds for World War I. Nope, Franz Ferdinand is a Scottish rock band whose talkie sound infiltrated modern rock. There was a time not many years ago when if it wasn’t The Killers‘ “Mr. Brightside” playing on your local rock station, then it was most certainly Franz Ferdinand’s “Take Me Out.” Since then, these men from Glasgow unleashed a slew of singles that went straight to the top of the UK and American charts and are going to rock your face off at Outside Lands Day 3… plus you can also expect some new tunes from their fourth album which is rumored to be dropping sometime this year!
