Franz Ferdinand are the little band that could. Their album has cracked the top 40 on the Billboard 200, and has sold 350,000 copies in the US so far. “Take Me Out” is #5 on the Modern Rock chart. Take that Seether Featuring Amy Lee!
Karen1+1=1 reports that the Delays will be opening for Franz Ferdinand on the forthcoming stateside gigs! The Delays are awesome and I hear they are great live.
Should we expect an impending FF backlash? I’m sure you’re as happy as I am about Franz’s success, but do they really have to sell their t-shirts at Urban Outfitters? (They’re even $4 cheaper than they are at the shows!)
Anyway “Michael” will be the next U.K. single. It’ll have two non-album B-sides “Love and Destroy” and “Missing You.”
