Frightened Rabbit announce details of UK & Ireland dates


Frightened Rabbit have just announced details of a UK and Ireland headline tour in September. The set of dates will kick off in Portrush’s Playhouse on 6th September, taking in Navan, Michelstown, Dundalk, Dublin, Cork and Galway before heading up to Belfast’s Empire on 15th September, followed by London, Manchester and Dumfries, concluding in a homecoming show at Selkirk’s Victoria hall on 25th September.

Tickets for the UK shows will be available from the band’s website
tomorrow, Friday 22nd June – – with the
Ireland shows going on sale next week.

Here is the trailer for the Highlands Tour short film that is coming soon:

The indie-rock quintet have since been holed up in the Monnow Valley
Studio in Wales, writing and recording their as-yet-unnamed upcoming
fourth album. Lead singer, Scott Hutchinson, says of the forthcoming
release – “The new record is taking a slightly more stripped back
direction than the last album. It’s a little darker – we’ve been
writing in the minor key a bit more, and the whole thing is a far more collaborative effort, which has lead to interesting new elements
appearing in the songs.”

You can also catch Frightened Rabbit at this year’s Hop Farm Festival on
Sunday 1st July.
