Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes Cancel Upcoming Dates Due To Car Accident

Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes have been forced to cancel the initial dates of their upcoming North American tour. The cancellation comes after Carter was recently involved in a serious car accident.

Carter commented:

“On Thursday night at 7:20pm I was involved in a serious car accident in Devon, UK. I crawled out of the wreck with some cuts and scrapes, a kneecap in the wrong place, bruised ribs and a headache that won’t go away.

My friend Pete was less fortunate, he was cut from the wreckage by no less than eleven firefighters with a triple fractured pelvis, ruptured spleen, multiple broken ribs and the kind of cuts and bruises you get from being hit by a car.

We were all taken by ambulance to Derriford A&E where I stayed until 7:30am the next morning when I was finally released with a collection of minor injuries and a new appreciation of living.

I have unfortunately been told I am unable to fly while my body recovers. As it stands the first week of our American tour will not proceed as planned. We looked at all the ways I could come and play the shows but once the doctor had seen me it was clear flying to New York this weekend was not an option. We will do everything in our power to make it up to you and are reviewing all the options including rescheduling.

Due to the last minute nature of this situation we are not able to give news on when these might be rescheduled but please trust us in that we are working on it and will have an update soon. We are truly sorry to the fans who bought tickets and to the legends The Beaches who are driving to New York as I write this. Check the venue websites for more information on refunds or new dates.

Currently affected shows are the following:

09/23 – New York, Bowery Ballroom
09/24 – Baltimore, Ottobar
09/25 – Philadelphia, Underground Arts
09/27 – Louisville, Louder Than Life Festival
09/28 – Detroit, El Club
09/29 – Chicago, Cobra Lounge

We are lucky to be alive and I hope to be well enough to play the rest of the tour.

Thank you for your understanding and your support.”

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.”
