Frightened Rabbit get ‘pretty fucking dirty’ on new album

Frightened Rabbit make a welcome return in March with their brand new single “Heads Roll Off”. Released on 3rd March on 7″ and Download only the single will be backed with “Set You Free” – surely not a cover of the N-Trance ‘classic’? No, I doubt it.

“Heads Roll Off” is lifted off the Rabbits’ sophomore album which is entitled Midnight Organ Fight. A release date for this has yet to reach us but for now, heres the official press release:

Recorded by Peter Katis (Mercury Rev, Interpol) over the space of two weeks, and mixed over the ensuing fortnight, ‘Midnight Organ Fight’ was conceived and realised in a much shorter time span than its predecessor, with the intention of creating a more coherent, ‘pop’ sounding album. Yet although musically more immediate, vitally, the band have not forsaken the personality or passion of any of their earlier recordings. Scott Rabbit expands: ‘I feel the general FR weirdness is still apparent in the lyrics and this makes for an interesting sort of juxtaposition. It sounds kind of clean, but its actually pretty fucking dirty once you get listening. Saying that, i hope all the reasons why people loved Frightened Rabbit in the first place are still there, only they may have been amplified somewhat’.

Certainly sounds promising. Though they’ll be hard pushed to better their classic debut Sing The Greys but if anyone can, Frightened Rabbit can! Expect more news as we get it.

If that isn’t enough Frightened Rabbit action for one day, then you can take a step into our ever expanding archives and view our 20 Questions with the band and a very special ‘seasonal’ interview from the end of last year.

    Likewise – I’m really hoping they can build on the promise of their debut which was great.

    I wonder if they ever got thier kiss from Kate Nash…

    the b-side is a cover of the N-Trance song. And, the album is definately a step above Sing The Greys. We’re all very excited at Fatcat.
