It was dawn and the kitchen light was still on
I stepped in, found the suicide asleep on the floor
An open mouth screams and makes no sound
Apart from the ring of the tinnitus of silence
You had your ear to the ground
White noise
I don't know if there's breathing or not
Butterflied arms tell me that this one has flown
Blood seems black against the skin of your porcelain back
A still life is the last I will see of you
A painting of a panic attack
He died in his sleep last night
He died in his sleep last night
He died in his sleep last night
He died in his sleep last night
You died in his sleep last night
You died in his sleep last night
You died in his sleep last night
You died in his sleep last night
You died in his sleep last night
You died in his sleep last night
Death dreams you don't forget
It's been a while since I dreamed this but
Even now, when asleep, I'll tread with care
Death dreams you don't forget
It's been a while since I dreamed this but
Even now, when asleep, I'll tread with care
Death dreams I don't forget
It's been a while since I dreamed this but
Even now, when asleep, I'll tread with care
Death dreams I don't forget
It's been a while since I dreamed this but
Even now, when asleep, I'll tread with care

Frightened Rabbit and I both come from the small town of Selkirk in the Scottish Borders. The locals will tell you that "a day out of Selkirk is a wasted day". Personally not so sure about that one?
So pleased that RP has discovered Frightened Rabbit, been waiting for years for this.
RIP Scott. 
Frightened Rabbit, opening act for Dancing Stoat.
Holy God, this is a beautiful ode to death.
Bill - thanks for continuing to play FR.
A good friend of mine told me about these guys. I was living in beautiful Scotland and they not surprisingly had a big following there. He had tickets to see them in 2018.... Then the singer went missing not long before the show. So sad 😔
I just listened to the whole album:  Painting of a Panic Attack.  Wow!  Every.Single.Song.IS.Excellent.  For me, anyway.   It is eerie and sad, each song is incredibly down, what, I can only guess is the reflection of Scott Hutchinson's state of mind, which sadly now, we know that he was incredibly depressed, taking his life two years after its release.  Every song seems to be coming from the depths of pain, and yet so touchingly beautiful.  I hear a Snow Patrol influence, or maybe it works the other way.  They are Scottish so its the regional Celtic sound I hear.  

Bill and Rebecca, I hope you play more from this amazing, moving album.
I really like these guys. been listening to their whole catalog on Spotify.

Look up the "Don't go Breakin' my Heart" cover they do with Craig Finn (from The Hold Steady)... it's awsome

 Why don't you ask Boy & Bear or maybe Gorillaz?

Amen, amen. RIP.

I tried to introduce FR to a number of people but they are an acquired taste.... so glad RP is that kind of taste.

Yeah once. They had a gig together in the Cat Empire.
RIP Scott Hutchison. I will miss your thoughtful lyrics.
