Frightened Rabbit had been busy as of late for a band with no new release news. The Scottish band released the State Hospital EP back in September and engaged in a month of U.S. dates (that didn't include Portland, yet did include Eugene, as well as a tweet from VooDoo Donuts) all before the recent announcement that their new full-length Pedestrian Verse will be released in February. It marks the fourth album overall for the band but first with their new major label Atlantic.
Very good, then. But even better, the band today released the first we've heard from that upcoming record (not counting the aforementioned "State Hospital"), and if that major label bit had you worried the new song "Dead Now" suggests you needn't be.
If you'll recall, the affable Scots stopped by our studios back in May of 2010 for a great-sounding session that found them playing mostly from that year's The Winter of Mixed Drinks release. Revisit it here.
