Frightened Rabbit Announce Sept UK & Ireland Tour 2012

Hop Farm Festival Appearance - 1st July

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.

This tour follows a string of intimate shows the band embarked on in the Scottish Highlands earlier this year, including far flung places such as Ullapool and Stornoway. 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."
