The tour, which supports Frightened Rabbit’s latest studio album “PAINTING OF A PANIC ATTACK,” follows a run of North American performances that begin later this month with a stop at The Greek Theater in Los Angeles, CA on May 25th, supporting Band Of Horses.  The Scottish indie band also has a number of headlining shows – highlighted by a stop at Brooklyn Steel in Brooklyn, NY on May 30th – and festivals, including BottleRock Napa Valley (May 26th), Boston Calling (May28), and Houston’s Free Press Summer Festival (June 3rd) – see attached itinerary.

*****

Frightened Rabbit’s fifth studio album “PAINTING OF A PANIC ATTACK” – produced by The National’s Aaron Dessner – enjoyed a Top 25 debut on the Soundscan/Billboard 200 chart upon its release last year, peaking at #2 on iTunes’ Alternative chart and #8 overall. The album’s lead single “Get Out” scored Top 10 success on FMQB’s Triple A chart, and garnered the band a pair of national television appearance, performing on CBS’ “Late Show with Stephen Colbert” and “Late Late Show with James Corden.”   The song’s emotionally provocative, companion video made its premiere on NPR’s All Songs Considered and received a raft of praise from influential sites, including Pitchfork, Stereogum, and Consequence of Sound, among others. The video – beautifully shot in Kiev –can be viewed at the band’s official YouTube channel (www.youtube.com/frightenedrabbit).

“PAINTING OF A PANIC ATTACK” follows 2013’s major label debut “PEDESTRIAN VERSE,” which earned a Top 10 debut in the UK as well as critical acclaim from a wide spectrum of American press, with praise coming from mainstream outlets like Rolling Stone and Time as well tastemaker blogs like Pitchfork and Stereogum.  The band’s emotionally charged live shows have earned a devoted fanbase, which includes bands like Death Cab For Cutie and The National – both of whom have handpicked Frightened Rabbit to support them on extensive tours.
