2010 has proved to be a pivotal year for Frightened Rabbit, their hugely acclaimed ‘The Winter Of Mixed Drinks’ album - proving more than a match for its hallowed predecessor ‘The Midnight Organ Fight’ – has seen them cement their reputation both at home and in the USA & Europe. Their biggest UK tour to date includes two Barrowlands shows (3rd & 5th Dec) and a night at Shepherds Bush Empire (1st Dec).
The band release a final single from the album, 'The Loneliness & The Scream' through FatCat on 22nd November. Explains singer Scott Hutchison, “The single itself is really about the same things that most of TWOMD focused on: a sense of isolation and the hints of madness and odd behaviour that can arise as a result of that. Like a lot of the record, I also wanted to be fairly sparse with the imagery. I hoped the listener would try fill in the blanks and walk into the song, tying bits of it together along the way. But it's a simple premise really. A person gets a bit lost and cries for help, or cries just to be heard at all. I suppose it was also relating to what I do most days as a singer in a touring band - shout to make people listen.”
'Things' (alternate version) is a reworking of the track that Frightened Rabbit did in the same studio the album was recorded in. They also reworked some other TWOMD tracks, which might be released in 2011.
