Franz Nicolay to Release New Album in October

After leaving the Hold Steady, Franz has been touring solo, released a book of short stories and joined Against Me! as a touring member of the band. He’ll be touring with a backing band in support of the release forthcoming record and he already has the below dates scheduled in New York (which includes a show of him doing Talking Heads covers with puppets accompanying). His new album, “Luck & Courage” (out Oct 12 on Team Science/Sabot) follows two characters, “Felix & Adelita” (Spanish for Luck & Courage), and sonically was inspired by Lyle Lovett’s “I Love Everybody” and 16 Horsepower’s “Low Estate.”
