TOM MORELLO (RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE/PROPHETS OF RAGE) GUESTS ON “TYRANT LIZARD KING”
Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes have announced the release of their third album, End Of Suffering, on May 3 via International Death Cult.
News of the release arrives with the debut of a video for new single “Crowbar” (https://fcatr.lnk.to/EndOfSufferingPR) as well as the announcement of an intimate UK and European tour (dates below). North American tour dates will be announced soon.
Recorded in just six months over the heatwave that engulfed London last year, End Of Suffering – named after the Buddhist term for enlightenment – is the sound of a band entering an entirely new realm of the senses, a 40-minute rock’n’roller coaster of molten-hot bangers, scorched-soul ballads and grunge lullabies laced through with a lacerating lyrical honesty.
Opener “Why A Butterfly Can’t Love A Spider” finds Frank at full stretch, singing: “When I’m high I’m in heaven/When I’m low I’m in hell,” while the first single “Crowbar” is tauter than a highwire and relentlessly sharpened to a razor’s edge, a sonic Molotov cocktail of a track delivered with the anarchic zel of the gilets-jaunes rioters. “I saw an amazing bit of graffiti during the Paris riots which said: ‘We’ve cut off heads for less than this,” enthuses Frank. “I loved that attitude. People are sick of being force fed doom and gloom.” It also comes complete with a video directed by longtime collaborator Ross Cairns (Biffy Clyro/Queens Of The Stone Age) and acts as a blistering clarion call to arms.
