Frightened Rabbit Emerge For U.S. Shows

Frightened Rabbit will emerge from their Scottish burrow for a handful of shows this summer, including Village Voice’s Siren Festival in New York, July 18 and the Pitchfork Music Festival in Chicago, July 19. The band is currently back home writing the follow-up to their highly lauded sophomore LP, The Midnight Organ Fight, but will take time out to perform alongside the Flaming Lips, Built to Spill, The Raveonettes, Grizzly Bear and many others at the back-to-back festivals. Their return to the U.S. will be rounded out with a run of headline gigs throughout the East Coast and Midwest as well as Canada.

The foursome, who honed their explosive live show with extensive touring in the States last year, has remained mum about whether they will be road testing any new material. However, Rainn Wilson from NBC’s "The Office" has not been silent about his love for the lads’ anthemic indie pop. "Dwight Schrute" tweeted his adoration for the Rabbits on his Twitter last week to his more than 635,000 followers, proclaiming: "Best album of last year? Easy. Frightened Rabbit. (Thanks, Krasinski!)." It’s good to see that Dwight and Jim’s rivalry doesn’t carry over to real life after all… or maybe it was Frightened Rabbit that brought them together.
