After spending time playing accordion and piano with circus-punk-rockers The World/Inferno Friendship Society, founding Anti-Social Music and playing keys for The Hold Steady, Franz Nicolay is finally letting loose on the music world a collection that is entirely his own. His first solo album, Major General, comes out January 13 on Fistolo Records.
Major General is available for pre-order now through Fistolo. Til January, you can listen to our mustachioed friend here, on a track from the album. Check out the full listing and tour dates supporting the album below.
