Frightened Rabbit- New Live disc out, X-mas song in the works

Frightened Rabbit released The Midnight Organ Fight earlier in the year to overwhelming critical praise. Since the albums release the band have been on a near non-stop tour in support of the LP. For anyone new to the band or old, they know Frightened Rabbit has a heavy reputation for their intense live shows. The band captured one such occasion on a new live LP, Liver! Lung! FR!, which was recorded at a hometown show in Glasgow this past July. It is an acoustic set, that features nearly all the songs off of 'Midnight Organ Fight'. Offering a different look into the LP's tracks, that are highlighted by Scott Hutchinson's personal lyrics, the disc also includes guest appearances from fellow Scottish mate James Graham from The Twilight Sad , who contributes vocals to “Keep Yourself Warm”. The album is currently available only in the US and Canada, with the UK and Europe seeing a release date in early '09. In other FR news, the bands 2007 Christmas single is seeing new life, as "It's Christmas So We'll Stop" is being re-worked & re-released. The track was originally released last year as a stripped-down version, but a recent re-recording of the track featuring David Karsten Daniels, along with new brass, strings, piano and a full choir will arrive sometime this December.
