Frightened Rabbit will be giving fans in the U.S. some new music next week when they release a brand new EP, entitled "Late March, Death March," next Tuesday, September 10th, which coincides with the kick off of their North American tour.
The six-track EP features the title track along with several songs that have not up until now been released in the U.S. including studio tracks and live version of "Oil Slick" which was recorded during a sold out concert at the Barrowland Ballroom in Glasgow.
Three of the songs "Radio Silence," "Candlelit," and "Default Blues" were recorded during the sessions for the band's current full length album, "Pedestrian Verse."
Frontman Scott Hutchinson had this to say about "Late March, Death March": "This song takes a fairly commonplace, mundane event (an argument on the way home from a night of drinking) and adds a fair bit of melodrama, mimicking the gasoline effect of pouring drink on an argument, I suppose.
"I've always loved elevating 'the everyday' into something larger and louder than it actually is. These small things can seem so serious and earth shattering at the time, then you wake up and you can see how daft you both were."
The band will be launching a North American tour this weekend. The run includes their own headline dates that will feature support Augustines, as well as two weeks of dates where they will be supporting The National.
The band's headline tour will be kicking off on September 24 at Union Hall in Edmonton and concluding on October 29th in Washington, D.C.
