Just over two weeks out from the release of new album, Modern Ruin, Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes have dropped a brand new video for the track ‘Wild Flowers’.

Directed by Jake Chapman, one half of the acclaimed Turner Prize nominated duo The Chapman Brothers, the clip features a rapid fire mashup of images, bringing a vivid life to Carters lyrics.

Watch the video, below.

Talking about working with Chapman, Carter says; “Jake Chapman is one of my favourite artists of all time.  Somehow in this mad world we also became quite good friends.  Foolishly I jeoardised all of that by asking him to make us a music video for our song Wild Flowers. Luckily for me, Jake Is further into the abyss of madness than I am and he has made something completely captivating and utterly insane… but best of all, we are still friends!”

The pair also come together for the limited edition, highly sought after Modern Ruin book, which accompanies the forthcoming album – featuring expanded lyrics, photography, poetry from Carter, as well as a 5 page epilogue by Chapman.

Modern Ruin is out on January 20th via International Death Cult / Kobalt Label Services.
