The release of Frank Carter and The Rattle Snakes‘ much anticipated second album Modern Ruin is just a day away, but why wait until then?

Here’s their latest single, ‘Vampires’, released earlier today. Consider it a little treat just for being You…


‘Vampires’ perfectly encapsulates precisely what, exactly, make Frank Carter one of the most potent and unique frontmen in British rock today, with Carter’s ferocious, visceral vocals underpinning gloriously massive, anthemic choruses to stunning effect.

In addition Frank is planning a series of exciting events, including a takeover of his own Sang Bleu tattoo shop in East London this weekend, and “12 Days of Ruin”, a series of filmed clips filmed by Frank and Dean Richardson and hosted on the band’s socials which will count down to the release of the album this Friday, January 20th.

The band will also be hitting the road with Biffy Clyro next week for a European tour, before heading out on their own UK headline tour in March. Full dates, below.
