Frank Carter is finally back, but not as the 23-year-old who greeted everyone with a solid right hook back in ’07. This is a man who has faced the blunt force trauma of modern life at its most unforgiving, and no – he’s not fucking happy about it. He has plenty to say and is asking you to sit up, switch on and listen… it’s time for Frank Carter to make punk rock dangerous again and it’s time for Australia to witness his rebirth.

Don’t just take our word for it though as Frank Carter recently exclaimed that

This is the most violently aggressive punk-rock band I’ve ever been in. It’s back to my hardcore roots. I’m back to claim my throne: the king has returned. When I pick a microphone and scream into it, I feel really good. I’ve never felt like I have so much purpose; I’ve never felt so hungry. I feel like I’ve got a licence to kill again. For the last year, I’ve felt like a blade that has been getting blunter and blunter. This band has got me sharp again. I feel like a weapon right now. I’m going to do a serious amount of damage.

The album ‘Blossom‘ was released in 2015, and was led by the single ‘Juggernaut‘. Frank’s intentions were thrown right on the table, and the other nine tracks that made up the album were equally as aggressive.


Most recently though, a new track, ‘Snake Eyes‘ from the forthcoming follow up album was unleashed.

Snake Eyes is an honest attempt at trying to understand my fervent struggle with depression. It’s like a fly on the wall in my hotel room. At midnight, in the middle of a tour while I am sick and drunk and the fly is a giant, bellowing beast of a burden that no matter how I try I just can’t escape. We have all been there and everyone’s problems take different shapes. Mine are the snake eyes looking back at me every time I roll the dice. Challenge yourself. You will prevail.


Frank Carter and The Rattlesnakes will be touring Australia this December and if their European shows are anything to be guided by this will be intense. Just this weekend all reports in from the big Leeds Festival suggest their main stage set was one of the major highlights. Australian fans won’t be 20 metres away from the stage with thousands of people crammed around them. This tour has the band playing three intimate venues along the East Coast. The walls will be sweating.
