Frightened Rabbit Makes National Television Debut on “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon” Last Night

Fresh from ending their wildly successful North American tour, Frightened Rabbit capped it all off with their national television debut on “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon” last night, May 25. Scott Hutchison and co. delivered a rousing rendition of their feverish kiss-off anthem “Nothing Like You” from this year’s The Winter of Mixed Drinks. The band are back across the pond at home readying for a show with Snow Patrol as well as several UK and European festival dates. They will return to the states for their Lollapalooza debut in August. Check out the lads in action on Fallon below.

Everest Perform Acoustic Version of “Let Go” on WNRN

Everest is currently on tour with Minus the Bear and playing their new album, On Approach, for packed house. While on the road in Charlottesville, the guys stopped by WNRN and performed a great acoustic version of lead track, “Let Go.” Check it out below.

Everest Premieres Video for New Single, “Let Go” On Spinner Today

At the heart of it, Everest is composed of five singer-songwriters, which may explain why bands like Wilco, My Morning Jacket and Neil Young have all enjoyed taking them out on the road with them. When it comes to Everest’s actual songbook, having too many cooks in the kitchen doesn’t hurt, either — it just adds flavor.

Frontman Russell Pollard tells Spinner that, of the batch of songs that form their new album ‘On Approach,’ the lead track ‘Let Go’ was originally the odd man out. “It started off as a riff Jason [Soda] came up with and over time we kept tweaking it and it kept morphing,” he says. “We then added a second drum kit and the song developed into what it is now. It’s become our favorite to play live … for me especially, since I get to return to my roots as a drummer and play alongside Davey [Latter], while singing.”

As for the video, like Everest themselves, there’s a lot going on all at once. But the end result is a feast for the eyes as well as ears. Check it out below.

Dangerbird signs UK’s alternative dance band Delphic; debut LP to be released stateside June 29

Hailed as “A New Order for the 21st century” by England’s Q magazine, the Manchester trio known as Delphic has become the newest member of the Dangerbird Records family. The band’s highly lauded debut album, Acolyte, released earlier this year overseas, will now receive a domestic release on June 29.

Whether on the explosively percussive “Clarion Call,” the lost longing of “Submission,” the sheer contagiousness of ‘Halcyon’ or the epic scope of the title track, Delphic consistently demonstrate that their ability to write massive songs is equal to their ability to build bangin’ beats.  “With a lot of dance albums, you search out the singles but the rest is all a bit samey and boring,” says Cocksedge, “We wrote the album as a whole and weren’t afraid to lower the tempos and concentrate on the songs.” Delphic will debut these songs to American audiences this spring at the Coachella Music & Arts Festival when they perform on Sunday, April 18.

Head on over to their OFFICIAL WEBSITE to keep up to date with more exciting news.

Following, Devine will head east for The Bamboozle, joining the likes of Weezer, MGMT, OK Go and dozens more, to close out the two-day festival on May 2 in East Rutherford, N.J.

Devine has been on a incessant year-long tour since the release of last year’s acclaimed LP, Brother’s Blood (Favorite Gentlemen), and is currently touring throughout Australia with friends Brand New.
