Fright­ened Rab­bit so Abbey to play Pais­ley

Paisley Daily Express - - The Ticket -

There’s one month to go un­til the chart-top­ping sounds of Scots rock­ers Fright­ened Rab­bit res­onate through Pais­ley Abbey.

The Selkirk five-piece are play­ing an exclusive gig inside the town’s fa­mous land­mark, per­form­ing with the Royal Scot­tish Na­tional Orches­tra (RSNO) in a unique show that will make good use of the abbey’s breath­tak­ing am­bi­ence.

The hotly-an­tic­i­pated show takes place on Tues­day, Oc­to­ber 10 as part of The Spree fes­ti­val.

A spokesper­son for the event told The Ticket: “Be­gin­ning with their 2006 de­but al­bum Sing The Greys, Fright­ened Rock­ers to team up with orches­tra for Spree gig at his­toric church

Rab­bit have be­come one of the UK’s most beloved mu­si­cal ex­ports.

“Per­form­ing in the stun­ning sur­round­ings of Pais­ley Abbey in a unique col­lab­o­ra­tion with the Royal Scot­tish Na­tional Orches­tra con­ducted by John Logan, this show will be a fes­ti­val high­light.”

The Spree per­for­mance marks yet another fes­ti­val slot for the band in 2017.

It’s been an ex­cit­ing year for Fright­ened Rab­bit, who have just played their first head­line slot at a fes­ti­val in Au­gust, per­form­ing to thou­sands at Elec­tric Fields in Dum­fries.

Their sin­gle, Fields of Wheat, which they dropped at the be­gin­ning of the year, has gained them rave re­views and now that the tour for their last al­bum, Paint­ing Of A Panic At­tack, is over their next full-length al­bum is in the works.

Fans at the abbey gig can ex­pect to hear songs from the lat­est al­bum as well as some favourite hits from the band’s younger days, de­liv­ered by vo­cal­ist Scott Hutchi­son.

A spokesper­son added: “Scott Hutchi­son’s emo­tion­ally hon­est and in­ci­sively-worded lyrics have been among the project’s most beloved qual­i­ties.

“Over the course of five al­bums, in­clud­ing their new one, Fright­ened Rab­bit’s front­man has made po­etry of his mis­ery, and still some­how man­ages to make it sound an­themic - like a tri­umphant ral­ly­ing cry rather than a downer.

“In all of those re­spects, Paint­ing of a Panic At­tack - pro­duced by The Na­tional’s Aaron Dess­ner - is the band’s most ac­com­plished col­lec­tion yet.”

Doors open for the Fright­ened Rab­bit per­for­mance at Pais­ley Abbey at 7pm.
