Frightened Rabbit has earned a wide range of critical applause and a fervent international fan following with their emotional melodies and frank lyricism. In September, the band released their "STATE HOSPITAL" EP, a collection of five songs that, as Hutchison explained, "for one reason or another did not fit on the full-length record, either thematically or tonally." "Building and surfing crescendos as big as Boeings," raved SPIN, while Stereogum called the EP's title track "a sweeping, cinematic anthem." And Paste Magazine described the collection as "cinematic... tells dramatic tales of war, loneliness and breakdowns."
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, Australia's Splendour in the Grass, and our own Lollapalooza and South By SouthWest (SXSW). Having recently completed a sold out fall tour stateside, Frightened Rabbit will soon announce a spring U.S. trek.
Frightened Rabbit is Scott Hutchison (lead vocals/rhythm guitar), Billy Kennedy (bass), Andy Monaghan (guitar/keys), Grant Hutchison (drums) and Gordon Skene (guitar/keys).
