Frank Carter and the Rattlesnakes Anxious for Long Overdue North American Tour
Frank Carter, who burst on the scene in 2006 with the raucous English hardcore punk outfit Gallows, has resurfaced with a new band that's ready to take on the States. Frank Carter and the Rattlesnakes are ready to leave their mark on North America after seeing their Modern Ruin album enjoy a top 10 debut in their native U.K.
"It's been a long time coming but we are finally pleased to announce we will be playing in the USA," said Carter of the outing. "America is a home away from home for me and we will be doing everything in our power to hit as many states as we can this year. Come out to a show and get hectic with us."
The band has already been added to some of the top rock and metal festivals of the spring, with appearances at Rock on the Range, Northern Invasion, Welcome to Rockville and Carolina Rebellion in the offing. They'll also share stages with Dinosaur Pile-Up and Royal Republic during their spring run. The trek launches April 20 in Los Angeles and wraps a month later at Rock on the Range in Columbus, Ohio, on May 20.
Frank Carter and the Rattlensnakes are already starting to make inroads at rock radio, while also recently unveiling their new video for "Vampires." The clip was directed by Tom Welsh and shot while the band was touring the U.K. with Biffy Clyro. You can check out the video, posted below the tour dates.
