Hot on the heels of their latest release, Sticky, Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes return to Newcastle’s O2 Academy on Saturday 20th November.

Since the early 00s, Carter has dominated, terrified and enthused audiences with his powerful and dynamic performances, gaining a reputation as one of punk’s most explosive live presences. Famed for encouraging a chaotic yet inclusive and respectful live environment, Frank Carter’s performances are quickly etching their way into Britain’s punk mythology.

Their debut album Blossom is still solidifying a reputation as one of the country’s most venomous and uncompromising punk rock records of its time, winning them an immediate fanbase among critics and punk lovers alike. With every subsequent release, the band’s sound changes and develops, from broad and progressive arrangements to more traditional and simplistic songwriting; the band always seems eager to take a myriad of influences and toss them into the melting pot. Sticky is no exception, and yet even by their standards, the sound is unpredictable and unpolished.

Pitched as a celebration of freedom and liberation, Sticky plays as an advertisement to turn feral and unleashed, which should entice any fan to experience the unchained atmosphere first hand.
