Frightened Rabbit release new album ‘Pedestrian Verse’

February headline UK tour includes London’s Forum

Critically-acclaimed Scottish quintet Frightened Rabbit have announced details of their eagerly-awaited fourth studio album Pedestrian Verse, out February 4th. The forthcoming release was recorded at the famed Monnow Valley Studio in Rockfield, South Wales, with producer Leo Abrahams (Brian Eno, David Byrne, Grace Jones).
 
Commenting on the new album, singer Scott Hutchison says – “The title is taken from a lyric in “State Hospital”. I felt it was a nicely faceted title, with enough layered meaning to remain open to interpretation.  Above all though, it was a gauntlet I threw down for myself.  If you call your album 'Pedestrian Verse', you can't settle for any old lyric.  It forced me to better myself.  In fact, I think we all stepped up on this album and I believe that our producer Leo Abrahams had a major role in that step.  He threw our music into areas we had not previously imagined. More than any other record we've done this has been a genuine journey of discovery into new ways of working in order to develop and fully realise each of the songs. As a result, I think Pedestrian Verse the strongest and most interesting record we've made to date.”
 
Last week the band announced of a run of headline UK dates in February. This is their biggest UK tour to date. It kicks off at Norwich’s Waterfront on Feb 8, taking in Birmingham, Portsmouth, Brighton, London (Forum), Cambridge, Bristol, Exeter, Stoke, Leeds, Nottingham, Manchester, Liverpool, Gateshead, Edinburgh and Aberdeen, before finishing up at Glasgow’s Barrowlands on Feb 28.
 
Frightened Rabbit released the ‘State Hospital’ EP in September, which was met with rapturous applause - as was the band’s last album, 2010’s The Winter Of Mixed Drinks (FatCat Records).  The Guardian declared that “(Scott Hutchison’s) songwriting is sharp throughout and most of their songs – with themes of escape, freedom and reinvention – have huge impassioned choruses that are made to be shouted from the nearest available mountain…This is the sound of a band upping their game.”
