    Glasgow's Frightened Rabbit will release State Hospital, a five-song EP, on September 25.

    "With the exception of 'State Hospital,' this is a collection of songs that for one reason or another did not fit on the full-length record, either thematically or tonally," says lead vocalist/guitarist Scott Hutchinson. "They're still four of our favourites, and they definitely represent the directions we've been pushing ourselves into with new material. We were inspired by fairly dissonant artists during the writing and recording of these songs, from Beck to The Shins via Max Richter and Caribou. I think we've definitely darkened our corners a little with this EP."

    Frightened Rabbit are currently hard at work completing their Canvasback/Atlantic debut LP, slated for release in early 2013. The much-anticipated album was recorded this past May at the famed Monnow Valley Studio in Rockfield, South Wales, with producer Leo Abrahams (Brian Eno & David Byrne, Paolo Nutini, Brett Anderson) behind the board.

    Track Listing:

    1. State Hospital
    2. Boxing Night
    3. Home From War
    4. Off
    5. Wedding Gloves (Feat. Aidan Moffat)
