Frank Carter and The Rattlesnakes are back with the newly announced album ‘Sticky’

Dropping October 15th and available for pre-order right now, Frank Carter and The Rattlesnakes are back in full force with ‘Sticky’.

Today (July 5th), the album’s title track was shown to the world in the form of a lyrics video on the band’s official youtube account.

The suggestive single is a tour de force of the band’s stylistic choices, carrying a level of grit they have become known for whilst displaying a level of self-awareness that makes them instantly relatable. If this is a sign of what’s to come album wise, fans should get excited. Watch the video below:

“You know there are no more buses, but you sit there anyway because you’re too fucked to figure out your options. Your kebab is on the floor, there’s a Stella in your pocket, and you’re woken up by a dirty little fox eating your shoes.” – Frank Carter on the feel of released song ‘Sticky’

Alongside the newest addition to the band’s impressive discography, details of a UK, Irish and European tour were also released. Anyone who preorders the upcoming drop from the band’s official store will receive early access to tickets on July 14th at 10 am local time. General sales will then follow on July 16th at 10 am local time, as reported by NME.
