Frightened Rabbit have taken a moment out of their European tour to announce that they’ve signed a new deal with Warner/Atlantic, having previously been with indie FatCat. The band will release their fourth album through the label next year.

In a statement, the band said: “So here we are in Germany nearing the end of an extremely gruelling but exciting year for FR. We have some exciting news to share with you all. This week we signed a deal with Atlantic Records and after some time off next year to write new material we will be releasing record number four with this great label. It feels very special to be part of a label with such a great history and we’re really looking forward to working with everybody we have met to this point”.

They added: “We also feel it’s important to mention how great the past four years have been with FatCat and although it is time to move on we are greatly appreciative of the amazing job they’ve done. Our last single from ‘Winter Of Mixed Drinks’ will be released next week and of course we still have a tour to complete so we best be off now”.

In its own statement, FatCat said: “FatCat is honoured to have released three brilliant Frightened Rabbit records and to have had a hand in the evolution of such a phenomenally talented and hardworking band. As their fans, we look forward to hearing their future efforts, and as their friends, we look forward to celebrating future successes along with them. Meanwhile, FatCat and Frightened Rabbit will continue to work together to support this year’s ‘The Winter Of Mixed Drinks’, as the band continue to tour it”.

As the band said, Frightened Rabbit’s final single for FatCat, ‘The Loneliness & The Scream’ will be released next Monday, 22 Nov. Their UK tour commences on Saturday.
