Rock Band Signs Asia Deal

The new album will be released in August.

Franz Ferdinand has teamed up with Tokyo-based music firm Hostess Entertainment, according to a press release issued on 22 May.

The British band’s label, Domino Records, will release their fourth album, Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action, on 21 August in Japan through its long-running arrangement with Hostess.

The band previously had an agreement with Sony for its releases in the region, where it has sold almost 1mn albums and headlined at most of the biggest festivals in Asia.
