Frank Carter and The Rattlesnakes unveil video ahead of Pompey gig
2017 has started with an enormous bang for Frank Carter. The brand new album “Modern Ruin”, racked up critical acclaim everywhere from The Sun to Kerrang and, apart from rocketing to number 7 in the charts upon release, also confirmed Frank’s place as one of the most iconic rock frontmen in British music today. Carter has been far from idle too, with January seeing him joining Biffy Clyro on tour and playing some of the biggest European venues around with the Rattlesnakes, as a prelude to their own, sold out headline tour in March. They play Portsmouth Wedgewood Rooms on 29th March.
The beautifully rough and ready video for “Vampires”, shot by Tom Welsh while the band were on tour with Biffy Clyro, captures the bristling energy and glorious exhilaration of a band at the very peak of their powers. Alternately filmed onstage and in corridors, in dressing rooms and from tour buses, it’s a thrilling document of life on the road.
You can see some of the raw excitement of Carter’s live shows for yourself as well when he hits the UK next month for a string of hugely anticipated headline shows, including sold out venues in London, Dublin and Glasgow.
