Frightened Rabbit announce UK & Ireland tour
Indie rock group Frightened Rabbit have announced an upcoming Ireland and UK tour along with intimate details regarding the group's upcoming yet-to-be-named fifth LP.
The band has been recording at the Monnow Valley Studio in Wales and lead singer Scott Hutchinson had the following to say about 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."
