[Watch] Franz Ferdinand Debut New Tracks Live in Ireland

It's been a while since we've heard anything from Franz Ferdinand but they're back and performed a gig in Ireland after an 18 month dry spell of gigs. While playing the show in Limerick they debuted four new tracks, as Stereogum points out they played "Right Thoughts", "Brief Encounters", "Trees & Animals" and "Fresh Strawberries" all of which can be seen after the jump via some fan shot footage. It's nice to hear some new material from the band and no doubt we'll hear more as they continue playing shows over the summer months.

As well as debuting new material the band also performed a cover of Donna Summer's "I Feel Love". A fine tribute indeed.
