If only they had jetpacks…
We Were Promised Jetpacks

A trio of Scottish bands, We Were Promised Jetpacks, The Twilight Sad and Frightened Rabbit, are touring parts of North America this September — they’ll stick to the West Coast and the South, starting out at Monolith Festival in Colorado on September 12th and 13th.

For the tour’s second leg, Frightened Rabbit drops off, and Jetpacks and The Twilight Sad will be joined by Brakesbrakesbrakes (featuring Eamon Hamilton of British Sea Power). The dates and cities for that section are still TBA, but there will be a stop at NYC’s Bowery Ballroom on Tuesday, October 6th. Tickets go on sale Friday, July 10th at noon.

Besides being from Scotland, all of the above-mentioned bands (even Brakes, but they are from England) are on Fat Cat Records. Jetpacks’ debut, These Four Walls, is out now (July 7th) on the label. That album’s “Quiet Little Voices” is posted above. The video for the same song is below.

The Twilight Sad’s Forget the Night Ahead (their follow up to Fourteen Autumns & Fifteen Winters) will be out September 22nd on Fat Cat. “Reflection of the Television” from the new record is posted above. The full track list is below. The Twilight Sad just visited NYC on their spring tour with Mogwai, which included three nights at the Music Hall of Williamsburg.

Frightened Rabbit won’t be at that October 6th Bowery show, but they will be in NYC a bit earlier for their appearance at Siren Festival on July 18th. The night before the band plays a show at Maxwell’s, which will be the first of two final Oxford Collapse gigs. Those shows are all part of the Frightened Rabbit’s July tour.
