Frightened Rabbit is currently hard at work completing their Canvasback/Atlantic debut LP, slated for release in early 2013. The much-anticipated album was recorded this past May at the famed Monnow Valley Studio in Rockfield, South Wales, with producer Leo Abrahams (Brian Eno & David Byrne, Paolo Nutini, Brett Anderson) behind the board.
The Glasgow-based band recently took a break from the sessions to fulfill a lifelong dream of performing in their home countryâ€™s historic Highlands. The trek â€“ which saw gigs in such far-flung locales as Ullapool, Stornoway, and the Isle of Mull â€“ was captured by fraternal filmmakers Hand Held Cine Club (David Lynch, Band of Skulls) for an upcoming short film. A trailer for <u>The Highlands</u> Tour is screening now at Frightened Rabbitâ€™s official YouTube channel, located at <a href = 'http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qO99exJyjO8&feature=youtu.be'>http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qO99exJyjO8&feature=youtu.be</a>.
Frightened Rabbit is among the most acclaimed bands of the past decade, earning wide-ranging critical applause and a fervent international fan following with their emotionally exhilarating melodies and scathingly frank lyricism. The bandâ€™s most recent full-length, 2010â€™s â€œTHE WINTER OF MIXED DRINKSâ€ (FatCat Records), was met with unanimous acclaim both here and at home. The Guardianâ€™s Dave Simpson declared that â€œ(Scott Hutchisonâ€™s) songwriting is sharp throughout and most of their songs â€“ with themes of escape, freedom and reinvention â€“ have huge impassioned choruses that are made to be shouted from the nearest available mountainâ€¦This is the sound of a band upping their game.â€ Whatâ€™s more, â€œTHE WINTER OF MIXED DRINKSâ€ was selected by NPR listeners as one of their â€œ50 Favorite Albums of 2010.â€
As moving and triumphant on stage as they are on record, Frightened Rabbit has performed countless headline shows, as well as sharing stages with such like-minded artists as Modest Mouse and Atlantic labelmates Death Cab for Cutie. The band has also won over audiences at a scope of international festivals, including Glastonbury, T In The Park, Oxegen Festival, and Latitude in the UK, Australiaâ€™s Splendour in the Grass, and our own Lollapalooza and South By SouthWest (SXSW).
