Scottish rockers Franz Ferdinand have been relatively quietly these past two years, though it’s been an intentional silence. Frontman Alex Kapranos has said in interviews that he wanted to keep the publicity to a minimum while his band worked on their fourth album. But it looks like that could change soon as NME reports that the band’s guitarist, Nick McCarthy, has promised a comeback in 2012. Now whether or not that means we’ll be hearing a new record or seeing a tour announcement isn’t clear just yet. But given the fact it’s already November, I’m willing to bet more news from the Franz Ferdinand camp will be leaking soon.
