Frightened Rabbit will support American Indie rock act The National on their US tour next month, before a return to the UK for a series of gigs.
The Selkirk quintet will release The Woodpile EP on September 2, immediately before setting off for the United States, with shows in Nashville, Seattle and Vancouver in Canada among others.
Speaking about the new release, singer Scott Hutchison said: “The Woodpile is about that night you felt utterly out of place, alone, awkward and cornered.
“All any of us want in those instances is for someone we care about to come and take us away from it all. It’s escapist, but also claustrophobic in places.
“I like the idea of contrasting a big, confident piece of music with lyrics that express uncertainty and vulnerability.”
So far, 2013 has been an action-packed year. Having released their album Pedestrian Verse to positive reviews, a top ten slot and sold out UK and US tours, the band has continued touring across the globe.
They returned to Scotland last month to perform on the main stage at T in the Park for the first time.
They also packed the John Peel stage at Glastonbury in June, played Radio 1’s Big Weekend in Londonderry, and will be appearing on the NME/Radio 1 stage at Reading and Leeds festival later on this month.
Their UK tour in November will kick off in Newcastle on November 5 before visiting Manchester, Bristol, Birmingham and London’s Brixton Academy.
It will close on November 16 at Glasgow’s 02 Academy.
