Frightened Rabbit jumps to spring tour with new album

on February 01, 2010, 9:45am

If you’ve been checking out our festival coverage of SXSW and Coachella, then you already know that Frightened Rabbit will be appearing at both of them. Now it looks like those two events are just a jumping-off point for the band’s spring tour, in support of their soon-to-be-released album, The Winter of Mixed Drinks.

The Scottish quintet’s latest record will manage to come out at the tail-end of winter, with a release date of March 9th through Fat Cat Records. Musically described as airy and expansive, the album’s  forthcoming single “Nothing Like You,” is due for a February release and is propelled forward by its strong drumming and driving guitar. It can be heard at the band’s MySpace along with their November single, “Swim Until You Can’t See Land”.

After playing the first four dates of SXSW, Frightened Rabbit will take a month for themselves before heading out to Coachella on April 17th. Following the festival appearances, the group will embark on a headlining tour throughout North America, which will wrap up on May 22nd in San Diego.
