Frank Carter & the Rattlesnakes have today premiered a brand new track titled ‘Snake Eyes‘ which you can listen to above!
“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
Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes have returned! Carter premiered his brand new killer track, Snake Eyes, last night on Annie Mac’s Radio 1 show, where she picked it as her Hottest Record In The World. Snake Eyes is out now on all streaming and digital retail platforms.
Taking up where they have left off, less than a year since the release of debut album Blossom, Carter 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.
The release of Snake Eyes comes ahead of Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes playing Download Festival on 12th June. The same week, Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes are set to attend the Kerrang! Awards where they are nominated for Best Live Act. Later in the Summer, the band make their debut on the main stage at Reading & Leeds Festival in August.
This recording has been supported by the Momentum Music Fund. Momentum is managed by PRS for Music Foundation, supported using public funding from Arts Council England.
