Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes Announce New Live Album “23 – Live At Brixton”

Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes will be recording their December 8 show at the O2 Brixton Academy in London, England for a new live album titled “23 – Live At Brixton.” It will be released on December 15, except the vinyl, which will be available early next year. Preorders can be found HERE.

The band commented:

“Brixton Academy was always going to be a special show for us, it’s where we all grew up seeing our favourite bands, our favourite shows – and to be headlining it so soon is incredible. To thank all of you that made this happen, we have decided to take it to another level.

Introducing “23 – Live At Brixton”. We are going to play every single song we have released to date, the 10 tracks of Blossom, the 12 tracks of Modern Ruin and our new single Spray Paint Love. Maybe not in that order, maybe not as you’ve heard them before – but all 23 of them will make up the biggest celebration of the past nearly 3 years of this band.

You can pre-order the limited edition CD and vinyl now. This is our first ever physical live release and the perfect way to mark the moment. If you have tickets, see you there. If you haven’t – the last remaining are available now.”

Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes Drop Off Papa Roach’s European Tour

Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes will no longer be opening for Papa Roach on their European tour. The band dropped off the trek so Carter can take some time off to deal with his mental health issues.

Carter said the following:

“The past two years have been a whirlwind of intensity and high emotion for myself and my family. It has been both a wonderfully fulfilling and exciting place to be and at times a brutally bleak landscape that I have found myself walking in, alone and terrified.

While visible wounds are easily sympathised, the insidious nature of internal pain means that talking about it can be not only a difficult situation but also one that is incredibly embarrassing and wrapped in guilt and shame.

When life gets dark inside there is no outside light that is bright enough to show you a safe passage. When you cannot find the light in yourself, that is when the real fight begins. Recently I have found myself fighting harder and much more frequently than I think is either healthy or acceptable.

No person should ever have to constantly fight through demons.

So instead, I am taking some time away from touring to focus on finding the light within myself to be able to always find a safe passage through any situation that the dark labyrinthine confines of my mind can throw at me. I will therefore not be able to perform on our upcoming European tour with Papa Roach.

I am incredibly lucky to have the life that I have, I want to be able to enjoy it for a long time and the only way I can do that is to be brutally honest with myself and stand up and say “I am not ok…”

But I will be.

Thank you for your patience and understanding while I work this out. I have a lot more to offer the world, and I look forward to sharing it with you all when I am a stronger, happier and healthier person.

If you are struggling with the weight of the world around you, please talk to someone. Embarrassment breeds Shame, shame breeds loneliness and loneliness will kill you if you let it.

You are not alone.

Frank Carter”
