Frightened Rabbit Retuning With New Single And Tour

September 16, 2009 by  


Frightened Rabbit return with a brand new single ?Swim Until You Can?t See Land? released through FatCat on 16th November, a primer for the band?s forthcoming and as yet untitled abum, expected in Spring 2010.

Featuring label mate Teutonic ivory-botherer Hauschka on strings ?Swim Until You Can?t See Land? is said to be a hugely anthemic song that is perfect as a first indiacator of the new album ?The Midnight Organ Fight? album.

Scott from the band explains, ??Swim Until You Can?t See Land? was the title I had in my mind before I even started writing the album; I was becoming more and more interested in the idea of a rejection of the habits and behaviour most people see as normal, and in turn embracing a certain madness. It?s about losing your mind in order to reset the mind and the body. Forget what?s gone before and wash it out. This is not necessarily a geographical journey, as the ?swim? can involve any activity in which you can lose yourself. It?s a good introduction to the record as the theme unravels therein.?

The band premiered three new songs – including ?Swim Until You Can See Land? ? in August at the Edinburgh Festival.

The band head to the USA once again on 14th September, renewing their touring relationship with labelmates The Twilight Sad, returning to the UK to play a special show for the Scottish Mental Health Arts and Film Festival on Wednesday 21st Edinburgh at the HMV Picturehouse, before hitting the road in the UK during November as follows (*supporting Gomez):
