International Death Cult

Released: 15.10.21






Ever since their debut in 2015, punk rockers Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes have shaken up their music and style with every release. But none have been so fresh as Sticky.

A bullish, boisterous ode to hedonistic nights on the town with anti-establishment sentiment woven throughout, this half-hour explosion of punk attitude is far less lyrically heavy than its precursor, End Of Suffering. Perhaps Sticky’s defining new attribute is the presence of featured artists, including Idles’ Joe Talbot, contributing on the bold new single, My Town.

But overall, Go Get A Tattoo (perhaps an invite to Carter’s very own tattoo studio in London?) personifies the album’s mood: live out your chaotic, spontaneous nightlife while you still can.
