The video is a gruesome blood orgy eye stab death romp wide-oh creep necro fest, play this on the telly if you dare you fuckers.
– Alex Kapranos

Following the release of Franz Ferdinand‘s latest album Right Thoughts, Right Words Right Action two weeks ago, the Glaswegian quartet return with their most gruesome video to date. ‘Evil Eye’ is directed by that woman who did that sexist Robin Thicke thing (Diane Martel) a bit ago, and it seems like her 2013 is all about pushing boundaries. Who else would have come up with giving Alex Kapranos a 70’s porn moustache and having his face sing the lyrics from an obese fella’s naked stomach. There’s also copious amounts of dismembered body parts, fake blood, and vomit.

Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action came out August 26th on Domino Records, and you can read our review here.
