Frightened Rabbit Announce Headlining Australian Tour This May
Written by Marc Zanotti on 15th February, 2013
Indie rock colony Frightened Rabbit are crossing whichever ocean separates Scotland from Australia for Groovin’ The Moo and while they’re here they’ll be putting on a few headlining gigs of their own.
The band will be showcasing material from their recently released fourth studio album, Pedestrian Verse. It’s a record that earned the praise of reviewer Max Quinn who described the album as “pretty special…and unyieldingly self-assured” while still self-deprecating behind the unguarded lyrics of singer Scott Hutchison.
Originally a solo project of Hutchison, Frightened Rabbit has evolved into a solid quintet that has long since endeared itself to Australian audiences, while recent singles State Hospital and The Woodpile have only added to the band’s fanfare.
