Following the release of their 2015 debut album Blossom, Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes have returned with a brand new single, Snake Eyes. The track is slightly different to previous tracks and shows clear evolution in the band’s sound. It’s a little slower paced than previous tracks, but still has Frank Carter’s trademark great lyrics.
When the band released the video I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect. I knew that The Rattlesnakes had some sort of trick up their sleeve, considering previews of the video shared on their Facebook and Instagram looked pretty normal to me. However the last minute or so of the video heralded a plot twist I certainly couldn’t have predicted.
You can watch the video here. Let me know what you think: did you predict the plot twist?
Plus, the release of the new track leads to some interesting questions about future Rattlesnakes releases. Does Snake Eyes mean there’s a new album on the horizon? I certainly hope so, because Blossom was one of my favourite albums of 2015 and a follow-up would be fantastic.
Either way, the Rattlesnakes are a busy band. They’ll be touring Europe in October, plus they just played Download Festival and will be performing at Reading and Leeds this August. All in all, it’s clear to me that these guys are leading a punk revival, and I’ll be closely watching where the band goes next.
