The Frightened Rabbit boys will be heading back to Ireland for a string of dates this September. Following a sold out show at The Academy in 2010, the band return on Friday 14th September.
Frightened Rabbit are a band who live in Glasgow and have done for some time. They record in bedrooms, cupboards and kitchens. Anyone can be in Frightened Rabbit. They have played some live shows in this city, but want to meet people from other cities, in order that they can come and blow into tubes when they play live. Lets keep pop music alive by getting it out of that dress and into a sweater.
Frightened Rabbit released their debut album Sing the Greys through their own label, Hits the Fan Records, in 2006. The album was well received and the group's reputation enjoyed a considerable boost in America after they played a noted showcase at the 2007 South by Southwest Music Conference in Austin, TX, and the U.S. release of Sings only increased Frightened Rabbit's popularity. The band's sophomore release, Midnight Organ Flight, arrived in April 2008. Keyboard player Andy Monaghan was added to the line-up shortly before the release of the album. The live album Quietly Now!, also known as Liver! Lung! FR!, appeared in 2009; meanwhile the band was working on their third studio album The Winter of Mixed Drinks, which introduced fifth band member Gordon Skene. A lush, uplifting set of songs, The Winter of Mixed Drinks arrived early in 2010.
To further whet your appetite for seeing them live here is a trailer for a short film the FR boys are having made of their time on tour in Scotland’s highland:
