“I’d also urge Scott to get in touch with family, friends or with police, to let us know he is alright.”

Scott formed Frightened Rabbit in 2003, after initially planning to start it as a solo project.

His brother, Grant, joined on drums in 2004 and they were soon joined by Billy Kennedy.  Over the years their popularity has continued to grow and their 2016 album, ‘Painting Of A Panic Attack’, entered the UK chart at number 14.
