Frightened Rabbit have just taken off on a huge slew of shows that will see them through Australia, Europe and North America.

They're currently playing a few shows (including two with with Echo and the Bunnymen) in Australia, and in March will cruise through a number of England-based shows for Europe as well as a number of North American shows, including stops at SXSW and Coachella.

Frightened Rabbit will release their album The Winter of Mixed Drinks on March 1st in the UK and March 9th in the U.S. It will be their third album and the follow up to 2008's Midnight Organ Fight.

They've also just launched a video competition inviting fans to make a video about their favorite mixed drink. Let the drunken video footage fly!

The Winter of Mixed Drinks was recorded by Stuart Hamilton at Castlesound Studios in Scotland and produced and mixed by Peter Katis at Tarquin Studios in Connecticut. Hauschka did the string arrangements for the album.

They'll release the single "Nothing Like You" as a 7" and download on February 22nd.
