Franz Ferdinand, Perhaps the Most Innovative Band of All-Time, Start Their North American Tour Today

Avant-garde noise act Franz Ferdinand are back with their cutting-edge music -- that is, if you can call it "music." Innovative, radical, revolutionary, experimental, spearheading, trailblazing, trendsetting -- these are just some of the words that immediately spring to mind when I think of the group's forward-thinking sounds. When all is said and done, Franz Ferdinand is a singularity in the music universe.

Don't have a way to play their non-categorizable "music" at home? You's in luck: Franz Ferdinand are touring North America starting today and, by the end of the year, will find themselves on the festival circuit before ending with a couple UK shows in January 2009. Expect to see lead Ferdinand-er Alex Kapranos consume narcotics, self-mutilate, verbally abuse the audience, expose himself, and leap off the stage. Their shows are so exciting.
