Frank Carter and the Rattlesnakes Unleash Colorful ‘Spray Paint Love’ Video
Frank Carter & the Rattlesnakes have been out of the spotlight for a good portion of the fall, but the band is blasting back with a brand new video for their song "Spray Paint Love."
The track is a brand new one for Carter and his band, who spent a good portion of early 2017 touring in support of their Modern Ruin album. With sharp guitar parts, a steady jutting drum beat and a little bit of a bluesy feel with attitude, Carter and his band deliver a song that should only continue the momentum they started earlier this year.
The group penned the track in the early hours of the morning in the back lounge of their tour bus driving through the U.S. "Mesmerized by the neon streets and glowing skies and the rolling landscape of unending road that we were constantly rolling along, it's an obituary of a love song, and a reminder to live in the now ... because that's all we have," says Carter.
As for the clip, "Spray Paint Love" has a rather simplistic, but eye-catching idea. The video finds Carter singing inside Samsung's innovative mirror-filled Hypercube, as the cube continually changes colors, giving Carter's colorful wardrobe that evolving black light poster feel to some extent.
Back in September, Carter bowed out of his European dates with Papa Roach citing mental health issues. But after spending some time off the road, Carter and his crew are ready to resume their touring and have December dates in their native U.K.
It's been a breakout year for the band musically, winning over many festival audiences and garnering praise for the Modern Ruin album. The group was recently nominated for Breakthrough Band and Best Live Band at the 2017 Loudwire Music Awards.
