Scottish indie-rockers Frightened Rabbit will bring their new tunes - and fresh banter back to Australia for a national tour in April/May. Supporting their new album Pedestrian Verse, the indie outfit have announced headline shows in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne around the GTM Festivals.
Frightened Rabbit started out as the solo project of Glasgow School of Art graduate Scott Hutchison. As the albums have gone on the line-up has expanded to include his brother Grant (drums), Billy Kennedy (guitar/bass), Andy Monaghan (guitar) and Gordon Skene (guitar/keyboard). It was Frightened Rabbit's second album The Midnight Organ Fight that found them their fanbase with its portrayal of love and heartbreak as a disease - the record resonated for the way it brutally charted the long, slow death of a relationship, the emptiness it leaves when it ends, and, ultimately, how that loss can be overcome. With its more self-assured follow-up, The Winter Of Mixed Drinks, Frightened Rabbit found fame in America that seemed to far outstrip their success back home.
Now with Pedestrian Verse- a far more intricate set of songs, as thematically abstract as they are powerfully euphoric.
This will be Frightened Rabbit's fourth visit to Australia and audiences have truly embraced the band from their exceptional energetic live performance at Laneway, Splendour In The Grass and Woodford Folk Festivals.
