FRANZ FERDINAND'S EVIL EYE PLUS UK TOUR
Franz Ferdinand | 09/09/13
Franz Ferdinand release a new single, Evil Eye, on Monday the 28th of October 2013.
Evil Eye was co-produced by Alex from Franz Ferdinand & Todd Terje and recorded in Scotland, London and Oslo .
The single is available as a one-track download and is accompanied by a video very much inspired the ‘horror theme’ of the song title, or in Alex’s words – “The video is a gruesome blood orgy eye stab death romp wide-oh creep necro fest, play this on the telly if you dare you fuckers.”
Directed by acclaimed U.S. film-maker Diane Martel (www.dianemartel.me), who said – “This is a creepy nasty video for my dear friends and my favourite band. I’m proud to be part of this brilliant album’s visuals!”
