Preview: Frank Carter & the Rattlesnakes @ The Haunt, 20/2/16

Frank Carter has become a name to fear in local gig venues. Since his first days thrashing with his hard-core punk band ‘Gallows’, to his consequent rock outfit ‘Pure Love’, he has always been one for putting on an energetic show. And now with his latest punk project ‘The Rattlesnakes’, it’s clear that nothing has changed, as the one thing that transcends his various projects is Frank’s ability to give a truly raw live performance.

This is especially true of late; since releasing debut album ‘Blossoms’ in August 2015, the Prince of Punk and his venomous new band members have been touring relentlessly, perfecting an already brutal live show. Whether he’s diving into the crowd for a particularly intimate sing-a-long or creating a whirlwind of mosh pits, it’d be foolish to expect anything but a lively performance at The Haunt on the 20th.

Expect to sing at the top of your lungs for the unruly anthem ‘I Hate You’, expect to get punched in the face during the riot inducing ‘fangs’ and expect to go home covered in a culmination of your own and others sweat. However if there’s one thing you should expect most of all, it’s that you definitely won’t go home disappointed.


Tickets priced at £12, available here.
