Glasgow rockers Franz Ferdinand make a welcome comeback with their new album Always Ascending.

Glasgow band Franz Ferdinand made their name in the early noughties when they hit the charts with a string of a dazzling post-punk singles. The most notable of these was their 2004 classic, Take Me Out, which cemented their place in indie disco playlists forever.

After working with glam-rock veterans Sparks on a project under the name of FFS, Alex Kapronos and his band are returning with Always Ascending, their first album of Franz Ferdinand material since 2013.

Made in collaboration with French producer, Philippe Zdar, Always Ascending expands the band’s sonic palette without losing their signature melodic hooks.

Experience this riveting comeback at Dublin's historic Olympia Theatre with Franz Ferdinand - very much a band back on the up.
