Due to continued COVID restrictions in Europe, the second half of the ‘Hits To The Head’ tour has now been rescheduled for later this year. Some dates are still set to go ahead as planned in April.
“We’re sorry to announce that due to ongoing covid restrictions across Europe and the logistics involved with putting on a tour at this time, we have had to reschedule the first half of our upcoming tour,” the band wrote on Instagram.
“We’ve kept in all the dates we are logistically able to do but for all others we have had to re-schedule for later in the year. Sadly, this has also meant we have had to cancel the shows in Padova, Brest and Prague. Venues have also been changed in Brussels, Warsaw, Milan, Munich, Cologne and Stockholm.”

Franz Ferdinand announced their upcoming ‘best of’ collection by sharing a new single, ‘Billy Goodbye’, last November. The album will also include another unheard track called ‘Curious’.
Speaking to NME in a recent interview, Alex Kapranos described the latter as “quite a different-sounding song” for the group. “Sonically, it’s more at the silky dance floor end of what the band is about,” he added.
Kapranos also spoke about the process of deciding on a tracklist for ‘Hits To The Head’, explaining that it was “like how you would choose the setlist at a festival”, mixing “bangers” with more “retrospective” moments.
News of Franz Ferdinand’s new compilation and the accompanying tour comes after the band parted ways with their original drummer, Paul Thomson.
