Franz Ferdinand and Sparks - FFS - announce live shows together

FFS: Franz Ferdinand and Sparks are joining the bill for FIB Benicassim 2015. Ten years after this seemingly unlikely musical idea was first conceived, the two bands have joined forces in a bold new creative endeavour. The mutual admiration between Alex Kapranos, Nick McCarthy, Bob Hardy, Paul Thomson, Ron Mael and Russell Mael has manifested itself in a striking new album produced and mastered by John Congleton (St. Vincent, The Walkmen, Modest Mouse), and Franz Ferdinand and Sparks will perform together live at Benicassim this summer.


FIB Benicassim 2015 takes place from the 16th to the 19th of July 2015. FFS: Franz Ferdinand and Sparks join a bill featuring The Prodigy, Florence and the Machine, Portishead, Noel Gallagfher’s High Flying Birds, Los Planetas, Jamie T, Bastille, Crystal Fighters, Mark Ronson (dj), Kaiser Chiefs, Public Enemy, Stromae, Hinds and many more to be announced soon.
