Frightened Rabbit are set to release their new album 'Pedestrian Verse' through Atlantic on February 4th.
Really, it's been too long... Frightened Rabbit released their third album 'Winter Of Mixed Drinks' back in 2010, and since then the group have toured the world (several times) and leaped on board a new label. Signing to Atlantic, the band released their new EP 'State Hospital' earlier this year, demonstrating their although the support around them may have changed their artistry surely had not.
Now the band have confirmed plans for a new album. 'Pedestrian Verse' is set to be released through Atlantic on February 4th, following sessions at Monnow Valley Studio in Rockfield, South Wales, with producer Leo Abrahams at the helm.
Speaking about the album, Scott Hutchison was typically ebullient: “The title is taken from a lyric in “State Hospital”. I felt it was a nicely faceted title, with enough layered meaning to remain open to interpretation. Above all though, it was a gauntlet I threw down for myself. If you call your album 'Pedestrian Verse', you can't settle for any old lyric. It forced me to better myself".
"In fact, I think we all stepped up on this album and I believe that our producer Leo Abrahams had a major role in that step. He threw our music into areas we had not previously imagined. More than any other record we've done this has been a genuine journey of discovery into new ways of working in order to develop and fully realise each of the songs. As a result, I think Pedestrian Verse the strongest and most interesting record we've made to date.”
'Pedestrian Verse' is set to be released on February 4th.
