Following the release of the band’s highly anticipated third record ‘End Of Suffering’, UK punks Frank Carter & the Rattlesnakes are today thrilled to announce their return to Australia in January 2020.
The national run is the band’s fourth Aussie stint in just over two years, and after selling out dates across the country previously, will see the band hit their largest Australian headline venues yet, and perform to fans in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth.
Frank Carter & the Rattlesnakes were last in Australia in April this year, supporting fellow UK heavyweights Bring Me The Horizon, also joined by You Me At Six and Trophy Eyes.
The punk outfit were met with widespread praise from national media for their trademark high energy, unpredictable live performances, with JB HI FI’s STACK Magazine musing they “damn near stole the show”, Music Junkee praising Frank Carter as “the kind of frontman who says jump and you say how high”, and Tonedeaf reflecting on how they “brought serious punk rebellion to the corporate arena.”
Frank Carter & the Rattlesnakes’ 2020 Australian tour will see the band perform tracks from their recent record ‘End Of Suffering’ to Aussie audiences for the first time.
‘End Of Suffering’ – named after the Buddhist term for enlightenment – is the sound of Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes entering an entirely new realm of the senses, a forty minute rock’n’rollercoaster of molten-hot bangers, scorched-soul ballads and grunge lullabies laced through with a lacerating lyrical honesty. The album was recorded with Cam Blackwood (George Ezra / Jack Savoretti) at the helm and legendary mixer Alan Moulder (Nine Inch Nails / Queens Of The Stone Age) sprinkling sonic stardust. Indeed. In an age of say-nothing pop and codified corporate rock, ‘End Of Suffering’ does what all great music should- lift the spirits and stir the soul.
The album also features Tom Morello as a guest guitarist on Tyrant Lizard King. The two re-connected after many years at Resurrection Festival in Spain last summer, where Frank infamously sung Rage classic Killing In The Name to a 40,000 strong crowd, finishing the track with a stage dive worthy of the rock’n’roll hall of fame.
Outside of Australia, the band have been busy over the festival season performing high profile slots at the likes of The Great Escape, Primavera, Lollapalooza and Reading & Leeds.
