Frightened Rabbit Spring Tour Plans

.
Frightened Rabbit will make their Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival debut when they perform alongside Muse, MGMT, the Dead Weather, Hot Chip, Devo and many others on day two of the three-day desert fest taking place April 16-18 in Indio, Calif.

SXSW in March will launch their first set of U.S. appearances in support of forthcoming third LP, The Winter Of Mixed Drinks, due March 9 on FatCat Records, and offer an opportunity to warm up for the Festival and six-week North American tour to follow. The extensive run will commence April 19 in Tempe, Ariz., hit NYC's Webster Hall on April 28 and conclude on the West Coast in May. The band is currently warming up in Australia where they have traded in a frigid UK winter for a sunny summer tour in the down under.

Two years ago, a foursome from Glasgow named Frightened Rabbit, crashed onto U.S. shores and quickly impressed audiences with their cathartic and fiercely passionate performances. The band unveiled their jangly, anthemic songs from their sophomore LP, The Midnight Organ Fight. Now, they return a markedly different band - one equipped with an eagerly awaited new album, a fifth member, an ever-growing fanbase and hundreds of shows under their belts.

The Winter Of Mixed Drinks is a collection of ambitious, moving, and gloriously accomplished songs that fully underscores the band's progression both sonically and artistically. Musically, the album is expansive, airy, gorgeously tarnished; grand like a ballroom in a sunken ocean liner, tipped with blood and rust, gold-flecked and salt-scarred. Early feedback of singles "Swim Until You Can't See Land" and "Nothing Like You" have been nothing short of glowing with Stereogum calling the latter: "a kinetic dose of the band's increasingly refined brand of upbeat and hooky, doe-eyed melodrama." The song, a fast-paced kiss-off complete with driving guitar and propulsive drums, was recently unveiled by the band and can be heard on their MySpace
