    Frightened Rabbit's fourth studio album is a tapestry of carefully crafted verse and gracefully epic instrumentation, stitched with the shortcoming of humankind and laced with the vulnerabilities of love.

Lead vocalist Scott Hutchison has previously taken on the songwriting responsibilities, penning break-up gems and cynical anthems that we've loved for nearly a decade, but chose to write the material for the new record with the rest of the band.
