Frightened Rabbit

Part of Meltdown

We are deeply saddened by the recent loss of Scott Hutchison. Our thoughts are with his family, friends, and the band at this difficult time.

In agreement with their management, we have decided not to replace Frightened Rabbit for the forthcoming show on 19 June as part of Meltdown. All ticket holders will be fully refunded.

In place of this event, the panel discussion Mental Health and the Music Industry will take place in Queen Elizabeth Hall.

Pumarosa, who were due to support Frightened Rabbit, will now perform on our riverside stage during Meltdown on 24 June, free to the public.

Join the rallying cry as Glasgow-based band Frightened Rabbit play their anthemic brand of indie rock for Meltdown, with support from Pumarosa.

Ever since Scott Hutchison started releasing music as Frightened Rabbit more than a decade ago, his honest and incisive lyrics have been among the project’s most beloved qualities.

The latest album, Painting of a Panic Attack, which was produced by The National’s Aaron Dessner, is the band’s most accomplished collection yet.

Since the 2006 debut album Sing The Greys, Frightened Rabbit have become a beloved UK export.

2008’s Midnight Organ Fight and 2010’s The Winter of Mixed Drinks followed, and 2013’s Pedestrian Verse marked their Canvasback/Atlantic Records debut, and was dubbed ‘a triumph’ by The Quietus, while The Guardian described it as ‘a collection of stirring, instant anthems’.
