Frightened Rabbit will be celebrating the 10th anniversary of their seminal album Midnight Organ Fight, by performing it in its entirety at next year’s 15th Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival.

The Scottish indie rockers are touring next year in support of the acclaimed album with a run of dates in North America and the UK.  With the Glasgow and London dates are already sold out, Belladrum will be one of the few opportunities to see the band perform the album in full.

The emotive album, which features the tracks “Heads Roll Off” and “Fast Blood”, was originally released in 2008 via Fat Cat and was met with widespread critical acclaim.
