Franz Ferdinand rumoured for All Tomorrow's Parties
Franz Ferdinand are rumoured to be preparing for a live return to the UK in December.
Fans are hoping the band will be surprise guests at the All Tomorrow's Parties (ATP) Bowlie 2 Weekender - curated by their friends, fellow Scottish group Belle and Sebastian - to commemorate 10 Years of the festival.
A source close to the group said: "The Bowlie Weekender was what started off All Tomorrow's Parties, so it is a special show for Belle and Sebastian. And the line-up is a bit of a who's who of Scottish indie from the last 30 years - Edwyn Collins, Camera Obscura, Teenage Fanclub - I mean there's only really one name missing from that list - and it's Franz."
Franz Ferdinand played a set of 'secret' shows earlier this month in Spain, fuelling rumours they are ready to make a full live comeback. The group last played full scale shows in Europe in 2009, and announced in February they had started work on their fourth album.
Other non-Scottish acts which have been confirmed for Bowlie 2 - which takes place between December 10 and 12 at Butlin's Holiday Centre, Minehead, Britain - include Crystal Castles, Isobel Campbell and Mark Lanegan, The Vaselines, The New Pornographers and Best Coast.
