Frightened Rabbit have this afternoon released an emotional statement following the death of lead singer Scott Hutchison.
Scott’s body was found in Port Edgar, South Queensferry, late yesterday evening after he had been reported missing on Wednesday.
In the statement released online, bandmates Grant, Billy Andy and Simon said: “There are no words to describe the overwhelming sadness and pain that comes with the death of our beloved Scott but to know he is no longer suffering brings us some comfort.
“Reading messages of support and hope from those he has helped through his art has helped immensely and we encourage you to continue doing this.
“He will be missed by all of us and his absence will always be felt but he leaves a legacy of hope, kindness and colour that will be forever remembered and shared.
“Rest peacefully Scott.”
