NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 05/06/13 -- Having recently completed their stellar North American headline tour, Scottish quintet Frightened Rabbit has announced plans to join The National on the road later this summer. Dates kick off September 8th at Nashville's famed Ryman Auditorium and continue through the end of the month. In addition, the band will appear at this year's Lollapalooza and Osheaga festivals.

The collection, Frightened Rabbit's fourth studio album, was recorded at the famed Monnow Valley Studio in Rockfield, South Wales with producer Leo Abrahams (Brian Eno, David Byrne, Grace Jones) and mixed by Craig Silvey (Arcade Fire).

Frightened Rabbit is - Scott Hutchison (lead vocals/rhythm guitar), Billy Kennedy (bass), Andy Monaghan (guitar/keys), Grant Hutchison (drums) and Gordon Skene (guitar/keys).
