Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes premier new video for ‘Snake Eyes’!

Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes have premiered a mesmerising and jaw dropping new video for their single Snake Eyes. The video, which has surprised fans and friends of the band, was directed by Ross Cairns and has premiered this morning on YouTube.

I wanted the Snake Eyes video to be wild and sexy and I wanted it to have an air of discomfort about it.  It’s a voyeuristic look at what can only be described as an intensely developing relationship between two sides. 

I wanted the video to challenge the viewers ideas of my character, my band, and stereotypes of all kind.

 No one person can be defined as a single line, we are all made up of multiple complex threads.   This video is about cutting the rope and pulling out each thread and celebrating those differences by baring them with confidence and pride.”

It’s been one hell of a week for Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes. They launched Snake Eyes a week ago as Annie Mac’s Hottest Record In The World on Radio 1. A day later they performed at London’s legendary Maida Vale studios for a BBC Radio 1 session where Carter whipped the crowd into a frenzy – view a taster of the performance here.  On Thursday, Carter picked up the Spirit Of Punk award at the Kerrang! Magazine Awards, before flying off to Nova Festival and then returning for a wild, riotous Download Festival on Sunday.

Taking up where they have left off, less than a year since the release of debut album BlossomCarter is not wasting any time keeping the Rattlesnakes juggernaut in motion. Snake Eyes, produced by Thomas Mitchener and mixed by Catherine Marks, is a ferocious signal of what is to come; building on what him and the Rattlesnakes have achieved and expanding on it. Pushing it in a new direction and being careful not to tread the same boards and cover the same ground, Snake Eyes is the sound of something new and a hint to what is to come from Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes in the future.
