Canvasback Music/Atlantic recording group Frightened Rabbit has announced today’s release of Painting of a Panic Attack. The band’s fifth studio album, produced by Aaron Dessner of The National, is available now in stores, DSPS & streaming partners. Watch Scott Hutchison give an in-depth look into the making and meaning of Painting of a Panic Attack, filmed in an abandoned German military hospital just outside Berlin here: https://youtu.be/fikZCeTqUP4. Frightened Rabbit will be performing lead single “Get Out” on CBS’ “The Late Late Show with James Corden” on May 23 (check local listings).

 

Frightened Rabbit celebrate the release of Painting of a Panic Attack with an extensive North American headline tour; their first stateside tour in nearly three years. The cross-country trek kicks off on April 21st at the Wonder Ballroom in Portland, OR.  Highlights include stops at New York City’s Terminal 5 on May 5th and Los Angeles’ Fonda Theatre on May 24th as well as a performance at Atlanta’s Shaky Knees Music Festival on May 15th and Sasquatch! on May 29th (full itinerary below).  For more information, please visit: http://frightenedrabbit.com/shows/.

 

The band made their U.S. television debut of “Get Out” on CBS’ “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” last month.  From their performance, Stereogum hails “Get Out” as “the kind of song that transcends all that, that practically begs for an arena to echo around in, and they played it with fire and conviction,” while Consequence of Sound notes the Scottish natives “truly did touch a nerve, delivering a compelling performance.” Following Colbertthe band held an intimate preview concert at New York’s Rough Trade in Brooklyn, NY. Brooklyn Vegan noted the highlight of the evening was album closer “Die Like A Rich Boy.” “It was just Scott and his acoustic guitar for that one, and it was the kind of sad, honest song that had you paying attention to every word he sang — all the things that made us fall in love with Frightened Rabbit in the first place.”

 

“Get Out,” which already has over half a million streams on Spotify, is garnering generous support from tastemaker stations across the country as the #2 most added song at Triple A radio with 34 stations on board. The song is currently Top 30, which is the band’s highest radio chart position to date. The song’s emotionally provocative, companion video recently made its premiere on NPR’s All Songs Considered and received a raft of praise from influential blogs, including PitchforkStereogum, and Consequence of Soundamong others.  The video – beautifully shot in Kiev, the capital city of Ukraine –can be viewed at the band’s official YouTube channel (www.youtube.com/frightenedrabbit).

 

Painting of a Panic Attack follows Frightened Rabbit’s 2013 major label debut Pedestrian Verse which saw the band land their highest ever charting, hitting the Top 10 in the UK.  The band also received 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.  National television appearances include performances on NBC’s “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,” TBS’ “Conan,” and CBS’ “The Late Show with David Letterman.”
