“This is my best vocal performance ever on an album” – Interview with Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes

Author Arto Mäenpää - 4.1.2024

Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes will be releasing their highly anticipated next album “Dark Rainbow” on January 26th via International Death Cult. Speaking of the creation of the album in a press release, guitarist Dean Richardson said:

“Normally we don’t look backwards when making a record, but this has been looking to reach us for a long time. Some songs are old ideas reworked, fresh eyes on something that didn’t quite fit on their other records. Some of these songs were lost along the way because basically we didn’t really give them the space.”

Frank Carter adds:

“I’m just witnessing the world change so quickly and I’m still trying to come to terms with who I am and what the authentic version of me is. By giving people what I thought they wanted I think I got further and further away from who I actually am, you know? So now, first and foremost, I’m prioritising what I need. Sobriety has been really, really helpful for me.”

The frontman also revealed that this will be the most authentic album he’s ever made, stemming from the band doing the work, and really getting to know themselves and each other:

“We’ve lived a lot of life together. A lot has rested on our shoulders. In a creative sense that’s a beautiful thing.”

The band have also announced a world tour set for 2024. It will be their biggest tour to date. February 2024 will see them make their way though the the UK and Europe. They will then head down under to Australia in April for shows in Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne, Geelong, Brisbane and Sydney. The following month, they will head over to the states for a handful of shows across the US.
