Scottish rockers Frightened Rabbit are streaming a new song from the band's upcoming Late March, Death March EP. "Radio Silence" details the orbiting thoughts that go through one's mind when in relationship limbo, and the maddening white noise of awaiting a breakthrough. 

Behind the Scenes: Frightened Rabbit

"'Radio Silence' was written earlier this summer, and is essentially about that torturous time you spend waiting for someone in particular to call you," says Frightened Rabbit frontman Scott Hutchison. "Of course, they never do. More often than not, this is for the best, even though it doesn't feel that way at the time."

Frightened Rabbit will head out on a fall headlining tour after playing a series of supporting dates with the National. The Late March, Death March EP is due September 10th.

Song Stories

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
