It's been almost a year since Franz Ferdinand's founding member and guitarist Nick McCarthy announced that he was leaving the band.

Since then, the Scottish rockers have been reasonably quiet - but it seems that they're gearing up for a re-launch of-sorts with two new members and a couple of new haircuts thrown into the mix.

Frontman Alex Kapranos and drummer Paul Thomson have grown their luscious locks, and a new picture posted to their Facebook page announced two new members: guitarist Dino Bardot, formerly of Glasgow indie-rockers The 1990s, and keyboardist Julian Corrie.

With their last album 'Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action' released in 2013, they're due a new album - and it looks like we may be hearing it sooner, rather than later...
