Frightened Rabbit are pleased to announce details of their eagerly-awaited fourth studio album Pedestrian Verse, out February 4th through Atlantic Records. The forthcoming release was recorded at the famed Monnow Valley Studio in Rockfield, South Wales, with producer Leo Abrahams (Brian Eno, David Byrne, Grace Jones) behind the board.

 Commenting on the new album, singer Scott Hutchison says – 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.”

 Last week the band announced a run of UK dates in February. It kicks off at Norwich’s Waterfront on Feb 8, taking in Birmingham, Portsmouth, Brighton, London (Forum), Cambridge, Bristol, Exeter Pheonix, Stoke, Leeds, Nottingham, Manchester, Liverpool, Gateshead, Edinburgh and Aberdeen, before finishing up at Glasgow’s Barrowlands on Feb 28.

Earlier this year, the Glasgow-based band took a break from the sessions to fulfil a lifelong dream of performing in their home country’s historic Highlands.  An accompanying short film was created, capturing life on the road (direct link here).

The band’s most recent album, 2010’s The Winter Of Mixed Drinks (FatCat Records), was well received across both sides of the Atlantic.  The Guardian declared that “(Scott Hutchison’s) songwriting is sharp throughout and most of their songs – with themes of escape, freedom and reinvention – have huge impassioned choruses that are made to be shouted from the nearest available mountain…This is the sound of a band upping their game.”
