Horse masks, starfish people, leather tassels, oh my. Director Tim Saccenti lends an occult hand to Franz Ferdinand’s new video for “Love Illumination,” off their upcoming studio album no. 4, Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action.
“Love Illumination” is the suspiciously catchy second video single released in anticipation of RTRWRA, joining the textbook-stylized “Right Action” on the band’s wave of resurgence as it crests toward an August 27th album release. The classic Franz Ferdinand sound which pervades Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action comes as a refreshing salve to fans who have anxiously awaited a followup to 2009’s Tonight: Franz Ferdinand. To top it all off, in October, the band embarks on a limited month-long tour across North America.
