Frightened Rabbit @ Terminal 5
First the Record Store Day news:
Canvasback/Atlantic recording artists Grouplove and Frightened Rabbit have both teamed up with Manchester Orchestra to release a very special 12-inch single for Record Store Day. The release, which features the Manchester Orchestra/Grouplove collaboration "Make It To Me" and the Manchester Orchestra/Frightened Rabbit collaboration "Architect," will be available Saturday, April 20th at participating independent record stores. Listen to both tracks now [BELOW]. For a list of participating stores, visit http://www.recordstoreday.com.Sidenote: did you know the Grouplove guy was in Aloke?
"We wanted to release some sort of 12-inch for Record Store Day, but we had no idea how it would come about, or with whom we could trick into doing it with us," said Manchester Orchestra's Andy Hull. "I sent a text to the first two bands we wanted to work with and they said yes. Being friends with both Grouplove and Frightened Rabbit, we decided instead of doing a split, we'd make it a full on collaboration."
"This is our way of putting some Manchester Love on some Group Orchestra," added Grouplove's Hannah Hooper, who helped design the release's artwork. Manchester Orchestra's Chris Freeman also contributed to the artwork.
"Andy Hull's solo album 'Church Of The Great Thief' was pretty much my favourite record of 2012, so when the opportunity arose for us to write a song together I jumped at the chance," said Frightened Rabbit's Scott Hutchison. "Strangely, we've never met, but via a string of emails and texts we managed to complete 'Architect.' I'm really proud of it."
For "Make It To Me," Manchester Orchestra sent Grouplove a "bare bones rock-ditty, which Grouplove transformed into an electronic explosion of funky grooves," explained Hull. For "Architect," both Hull and Frightened Rabbit lead singer/guitarist Scott Hutchison began talking about the song, and over time, sent voice memos back and forth before landing on its final version.
"I couldn't be happier with the end result and it certainly won't be the last time we collaborate with either band," said Hull.
And... Scotland's Frightened Rabbit, who recently announced they'll be back this summer to play Lollapalooza and Osheaga, have been out touring across America since early March. That trek has already brought the band to Austin for SXSW where they played played a few shows including one with Alt-J, and to NYC where they headlined Terminal 5 on Thursday night (4/4). We have some pictures from that one, and they continue, along with their latest set of tour dates and the Record Store Day collab, below...

Frightened Rabbit at Williamsburg Waterfront in 2011 (more by Dominick Mastrangelo)
As mentioned, Frightened Rabbit are releasing a new full length in 2013 and since we last spoke, details have been revealed about that album. It's called Pedestrian Verse and it will be out on February 5 via Atlantic, their first full length for their new major label home. It was produced by Leo Abrahams. You can watch the video for the album's lead single, "Dead Now," and check out the cover art and tracklist below.
Frightened Rabbit will be supporting the new album with a North American tour in the spring which brings the band to NYC on April 4 at Terminal 5. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (12/14) at noon with an AmEx presale starting Wednesday (12/12) at noon.
A list of all dates, video, cover art, and tracklist are below.
Frightened Rabbit in Brooklyn in 2011 (more by Dominick Mastrangelo)
Frightened Rabbit are still getting around to following 2010's The Winter of Mixed Drinks with what will be their first album for Atlantic Records. That album is tentatively scheduled for an early 2013 release, but in the meantime, they'll release a second EP (following 2011's free A Frightened Rabbit EP) on September 25.
They'll support that EP with an international tour which brings the band to NYC for a show at Bowery Ballroom on October 8. Tickets go on sale Friday (7/13) at noon with an AmEx presale starting Wednesday (7/11) at noon. Act quick, because Bowery Ballroom is a small show for the Scottish band at this point and last year's similarly sized show at Music Hall of Williamsburg sold out pretty quickly.
A list of all tour dates and a video are below.

"Amazing performances last night by Death Cab for Cutie and Frightened Rabbitat Williamsburg waterfront in BKLN. Thank you." - JW Byer
Death Cab for Cutie played Williamsburg Waterfront last night (8/20 with Frightened Rabbit as part of their tour together. Like they did at their Bowery Ballroom show in June, Death Cab played a lot of older stuff in their set, only touching on about half of the new album Codes and Keys.
The Death Cab/Frightened Rabbit tour continues through the end of this month, but tonight (8/3) Frightened Rabbit play their own headlining show at MHOW with Right On Dynamite while Death Cab tape an episode of Live From The Artists Den. Tickets are sold out.
Pictures, videos and setlist from last night's show below...

Death Cab For Cutie at Radio City Music Hall (more by Eric M. Townsend)
In addition to the previously-announced "limited 13 date run" of small venues in support of Codes & Keys, Death Cab For Cutie have announced a larger set of North American dates taking place later in the summer. Those include an NYC show at a venue a little bit bigger than (the way sold-out) Bowery Ballroom. Tickets go on fan presale on 4/29 and general sale Friday May 6th for DCFC at Williamsburg Waterfront on August 2nd with Frightened Rabbit who open a bunch of shows on the tour (as you can see in the list of dates below).

Craig Finn & Frightened Rabbit
Just hours before Saturday night's Frightened Rabbit show, I wrote "The Craig Finn duet audio is still not available." That is no longer true, though the audio now available is the live audio from the part of the Terminal 5 show where The Hold Steady's Craig Finn came on stage and sang "Don't Go Breaking My Heart" live on stage with the headlining band during their encore (video below). The excitement continued after that when Frightened Rabbit invited up costumed crowd members, of which there were many in attendance since the show's date was October 30th.
Plants & Animals and a very stylish looking Phantom Band (who recently played our Friday CMJ day party) opened the show. More pictures with Frightened Rabbits' setlist and the videos, below....
Frightened Rabbit @ Lollapalooz 2010 (more by Josh Darr)
"Having [recently] kicked off their headlining tour, [Frightened Rabbit] is simultaneously ramping up for their fourth single, "The Loneliness and the Scream" (FatCat Records), due December 8. For the b-side, frontman Scott Hutchison teamed up with The Hold Steady's Craig Finn for an all-male duet of the Elton John and Kiki Dee classic, "Don't Go Breaking My Heart." Dressed in Hutchison's individually hand made artwork, the physical single will be included in a limited 500-edition box set that will house all four 7-inch singles from the album.The Craig Finn duet audio is still not available, but you can check out the "The Loneliness and the Scream" video below.
The unique choice of a cover was actually planned well ahead and Hutchison turned to a respected peer to see it through. "The b-side has been an idea of mine for a couple of years actually, two guys singing the Elton John/Kiki Dee duet. When I was making a list of the ideal Kiki's, Craig Finn was at the top," reveals Hutchison. "I couldn't believe it when he agreed to do the part. Craig is quite simply one of my favorite lyricists and his voice works brilliantly in the role." Frightened Rabbit's part was recorded at Glasgow's CaVa Studios while Finn recorded his vocal in The Hold Steady's studio, Wild Arctic Recording in New York.
Ahead of the single's release, a video for "The Loneliness and the Scream" [was released]
Frightened Rabbit's tour with Plants & Animals and The Phantom Band hits Terminal 5 in NYC tonight (10/30). Looking for last minute plans? I have a few pairs of tickets to give away to the show. Details on how to win them, with all dates and the video, below...

DOWNLOAD: The Phantom Band - Walls (MP3)
The just-announced list of CMJ performing artist is a little light on foreign acts, at least ones I haven't seen before, but one inclusion just made my day: Glasgow's The Phantom Band. While there are surely more shows to be announced, they are playing Knitting Factory on Friday, October 22 with Title Tracks and COOLRUNNINGS. After CMJ, The Phantom Band will go on tour with Frightened Rabbit, including the October 30 show at Terminal 5 that Plants & Animals are also playing (tickets still on sale).
Last year's debut made my Best LPs of 2009 list, so allow me to quote myself:
Semi-mysterious Glaswegian sextet The Phantom Band sound like a combination of the best moody Scottish groups of the last 10 years: the angst of Arab Strap and Malcolm Middleton's solo work, the sweep of the Delagos, the atmospherics of Mogwai. So it makes sense they're signed to Chemikal Underground, home of all the aforementioned.The same week as CMJ, The Phantom band will release their second album, The Wants. You can download "Walls" from it at the top of this post. A little more tightly-reigned than their debut, The Wants is no less compelling. The band also seem to have lost the masks they wore last year, as well as a member if their press photos are anything to go on.
Their debut, Checkmate Savage is epic and awesome, nine tracks, nearly an hour long, and not a wasted minute. It's easy to type out a litany of influences (Krautrock, Lee Perry dub, Joy Division, Fairport Convention) but, really, they don't sound like anyone else. At times it's singer-songwritery but then they'll lock into a motorik groove that can only really come from playing together live.
All upcoming Phantom Band shows, plus a video from their first album, are after the jump.

"There were no special effects during Soundgarden's performance on the last night of Lollapalooza -- no lasers, no costume changes, no props or hydraulics. Even the video screens switched over to black and white. But the band didn't need any added visuals: Soundgarden delivered an explosive set of classic '90s songs in front of their biggest audience since their breakup 13 years ago. Chris Cornell underplayed the band's return, suggesting their decade-plus break was more like a few years. "It's good to be back!" said Cornell, who's grown his hair back out to its late-'80s length. "We just took a little break, but now we're back."" [Rolling Stone]Soundgarden's Sunday night setlist (they played against Arcade Fire), a bunch of of videos and the rest of our 2010 Lollapalooza pictures, below...
Frightened Rabbit @ Bowery Ballroom in 2009 (more by Natasha Ryan)
Frightened Rabbit will be spending their summer touring the UK, Europe and Australia (with a stop at Lollapalooza in August). This November and December they'll double over the UK again, but will manage another trip stateside. They play NYC's Terminal 5 on Saturday, October 30th (mischief night) along with Plants And Animals. Tickets go on sale Friday at noon.
Frightened Rabbit put out a single for their song "Living in Colour" on June 14th through Fat Cat. The video for that, plus their recent performance on Fallon, an interview, a Plants And Animals video and all tour dates are below...

Frightened Rabbit @ Siren Fest 2009 (more by Tim Griffin)
FRIGHTENED RABBIT UNABLE TO APPEAR AT SCHEDULED PERFORMANCE AT COACHELLA MUSIC & ARTS FESTIVAL DUE TO UK AIRSPACE CLOSUREThey're dropping like rabbits, I mean flies. Frightened Rabbit join the Cribs in the Coachella Volcano club.
LOS ANGELES, April 16, 2010 - Due to unforeseen circumstances, Frightened Rabbit will not be appearing at the Coachella Music & Arts Festival on Saturday, April 17 as planned. As of Thursday, April 15, airspace in the UK has been shut down due to the recently erupted Icelandic volcano, which clouded the sky with volcanic ash. As a direct result, the UK has issued a no-fly deadline and all flights are reportedly shut down until 7 am GMT tomorrow, which ensures the band will miss their 2:45 pm scheduled set.
Eurocontrol, the European air traffic agency, said the delays will continue into Saturday as the ash cloud moves south and east. The ash has closed the three busiest airports in Europe: Heathrow in London, Frankfurt in Germany and Charles de Gaulle in Paris.
Having just released their new album, "The Winter Of Mixed Drinks," Coachella was to serve as Frightened Rabbit's kick off to their North American tour. The tour is expected to begin Monday, April 19 in Tempe.
Frightened Rabbit's NYC show at Webster Hall on April 28th is sold out, but, assuming they make it here by then, you can still attempt to catch them at Sound Fix earlier that day. The post-Record Store day show is one of five U.S. in-stores the Scottish band will play over the course of their previously announced, spring, post-Coachella-cancellation tour. All of those dates are below...
Frightened Rabbit, whose North American tour stops at Webster Hall on April 28th, will be doing an in-store at Sound Fix earlier that night. Note that the Webster Hall show (with Bad Veins and Maps & Atlases who are at Maxwell's tonight/Thursday) is sold out.
Also coming up at Sound Fix are Fol Chen on April 18th (whose current tour with Liars hits Bowery Ballroom tonight and Music Hall of Williamburg the same day as the in-store) and Golden Triangle (who have plenty of other shows, listed below) on May 4th.
For Record Store Day, Sound Fix doesn't have any live music, but will be opening at 10:30am to sell the RSD exclusive records from this list. Some discs they should have copies of (according to the clerk there) are Black Moth Super Rainbow's limited double-LP version of 2009's Eating Us, a super-exclusive Rodriguez 7" with "Inner City Blues (recorded live in the streets of Paris) paired with "I'm Gonna Live Til I Die" (live cover of Frank Sinatra song), and a Fela Kuti 10" EP (4 songs, recorded in LA in 1969; cover is replica of first Nigerian Fela Kuti record).
The full schedules for Sound Fix and Golden Triange are below...
"The 2010 Lollapalooza line-up is official: Soundgarden, Green Day, Lady Gaga, Arcade Fire, The Strokes, and Phoenix will headline, joined by Social Distortion, MGMT, Jimmy Cliff, Hot Chip, and The Black Keys. With 130 bands on this year's bill, its sure to be a weekend long feast for the ears.After extremely accurate early leaks and then much teasing, Lollapalooza oficially announces this year's lineup. Check it out below...
It's a monumental year for Lollapalooza, filled with homecomings, reunions, and first-times. Soundgarden, 1992 and 1996 Lollapalooza alumni, return to the Lollapalooza stage for their first performance since 1997. Green Day will rock Grant Park sixteen years after their first Lollapalooza appearance. While Lady Gaga will headline the festival only three short years after playing the BMI stage at Lollapalooza 2007.
Arcade Fire returns to Grant Park, having played the reincarnated Lollapalooza in 2005. This is the first Lollapalooza for The Strokes - and also their first show in four years. And making their Lollapalooza debut: Phoenix." - Lollapalooza

Frightened Rabbit @ Pitchfork Festival 2009 (more by Joseph Xu)
Spin: Why Frightened Rabbit? "When I first started playing," says singer-guitarist Scott Hutchison, "I was a solo act and, unfortunately, Scott Hutchison is not a catchy band name at all. I thought of Frightened Rabbit because it was a nickname given to me by my mum when I was younger. I was incredibly shy as a child, almost chronically so. My parents would take me to their friends' houses and I'd be expected to play with their kids -- I guess the idea was to socialize me -- but I had no interest. These kids weren't my friends. Why did I have to play with them? I'd end up just sitting silently by myself.Frightened Rabbit' third LP, The Winter Of Mixed Drinks, is scheduled for a March 9th release on FatCat Records. The first single off that, "Nothing Like You," comes out February 23rd. The song is streaming at Fat Cat, and a video of the guys playing it on top of a movie theater in London is posted below. The new record is their first full-length release since 2008's The Midnight Organ Fight - Winter was recorded by the band and "mixed by Peter Katis (The Twilight Sad, The National, We Were Promised Jetpacks etc) in Connecticut."
So out of that, my mum called me her frightened rabbit. When I started to play with the other guys in the band, we didn't other finding a new name.
Frightened Rabbit come to the US for SXSW in March. Then they'll be back for post-Coachella shows in April and May. The trip, which runs across North America, stops at NYC's Webster Hall on April 28th. tickets are on sale Friday at noon.
