It’s hard to believe that this year is the 10th anniversary of Scottish rockers Frightened Rabbit’s breakthrough album The Midnight Organ Fight. I distinctly remember that album accompanying me during my first few months in college at Binghamton when I was experiencing a few rough moments in my own personal life due to the loss of my grandfather and a particularly rough breakup all in the span of a couple weeks. The weather was cold up there but life was even colder, but this album and the words of frontman Scott Hutchison provided some much-needed warmth.

It’s been great to see just how well the guys have done in the ten years that have since passed, including singing to major label Atlantic Records and releasing three more albums along the way. They clearly realize the importance of The Midnight Organ Fight and announced that they’d be touring in select cities in celebration of the album’s tenth anniversary. This tour included two intimate performances at the venues that they once started out at, Bowery Ballroom and Music Hall of Williamsburg. Both were very much sold out and we caught their performance at Music Hall of Williamsburg on a fittingly brisk night on February 24.

Frightened Rabbit at Terminal 5 (May 5, 2016)

Whenever I think of Scottish band Frightened Rabbit, I think of the early days of both this blog, and them as a band, just releasing their breakthrough album The Midnight Organ Fight in 2008. Here we are eight years later and the band sit nice and snug on the Atlantic Records roster, and able to play a place such as Terminal 5.

The show came in support of their new album Painting Of A Panic Attack, a huge sounded record from the group, but one that still maintains that raw sense of emotion that the band made their name from. They were able to fill out the room no problem with their sounds, not always the easiest feat at Terminal 5.

The show also featured an opening set from local New York band Caveman, who recently released their new album Otero War via Cinematic Music Group

By Will Oliver, August 16th 2012 — with 2 comments

Frightened Rabbit are releasing a new EP titled State Hospital on September 25. The title track from the EP was shared on Zane Lowe’s BBC Radio 1 show last night.

If you’re a fan of the Scottish bands work in the past, you will have no problem with this new track. It’s more warm, uplifting rock from the band. Not many do rock with a dramatic flair quite like these guys.
