To celebrate the release of their self-titled album, FFS – the unique collaboration between Franz Ferdinand and Sparks – have revealed the video to the album track Piss Off.


The video, a fun & anarchic part-illustrated kung-fu inspired caper taking place in a futuristic city landscape, was directed by Rob Chandler (www.spaceagefilms.co.uk).

FFS, out on Monday June 8th 2105 on Domino, was recorded at London’s RAK Studios in London and produced by Grammy-award winner John Congleton (St Vincent, David Byrne, Anna Calvi).

The album is available on CD and download and also as 16 track double vinyl + limited edition double colour vinyl special edition & deluxe CD editions.
