This Saturday, Brighton’s Patterns will experience the expertly harnessed wrath of punk’s favourite frontman and his new band, namely Frank Carter and the Rattlesnakes.
After a brief foray into the lighter side of rock music with his project Pure Love, Carter is again unleashing his punk rock fury on unsuspecting crowds, and this time there’s no hiding behind a name. Carter’s newest band is all about him, and for good reason. His ferocious performing style coupled with the stellar songs off their debut full length album Blossom make for an addictive concoction that any lover of heavy music won’t be able to get enough of. Listen out in particular for the truly venomous I Hate You.
If the headliners aren’t enough to get your attention then the supports might. Carter’s brother Richard fronts hardcore outfit Blackhole, and Creeper are one of the most exciting new bands around right now with their blend of AFI-inspired gloomy punk. We recommend you get listening to both of them now in order to make the most out of the night.
If you like your gigs sweaty and your music with a bite, you need to find yourself a ticket to this gig. It’s sold out but we recommend you beg, steal or borrow to get your hands on one (disclaimer: The Verse doesn’t actually endorse theft as a means of acquiring gig tickets).
