FRIGHTENED RABBIT UNABLE TO APPEAR AT SCHEDULED PERFORMANCE AT

COACHELLA MUSIC & ARTS FESTIVAL DUE TO UK AIRSPACE CLOSURE

LOS ANGELES, April 16, 2010 - Due to unforeseen circumstances, Frightened Rabbit will not be appearing at the Coachella Music & Arts Festival on Saturday, April 17 as planned. As of Thursday, April 15, airspace in the UK has been shut down due to the recently erupted Icelandic volcano, which clouded the sky with volcanic ash. As a direct result, the UK has issued a no-fly deadline and all flights are reportedly shut down until 7 am GMT tomorrow, which ensures the band will miss their 2:45 pm scheduled set.

Eurocontrol, the European air traffic agency, said the delays will continue into Saturday as the ash cloud moves south and east. The ash has closed the three busiest airports in Europe: Heathrow in London, Frankfurt in Germany and Charles de Gaulle in Paris.

Having just released their new album, "The Winter Of Mixed Drinks," Coachella was to serve as Frightened Rabbit's kick off to their North American tour. The tour is expected to begin Monday, April 19 in Tempe.

Womp womp woooooomp.
