Formidable Gallows and Pure Love frontman Frank Carter and guitarist Dean Richardson got together with bassist Tom “Tank” Barclay and drummer Gareth Grover to form Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes in early 2015. That summer they released their debut album, the visceral and chaotic Blossom, which climbed to No.18 on the UK albums chart.

The punk rockers followed that up with the No.7 chart-topping record, Modern Ruin, in 2017. While hitting the road to promote it, they not only garnered a reputation for delivering ferocious live gigs full of raucous energy, crowd surfers and moshing heads, but the foursome were also nominated as Best UK Band at that year’s Heavy Music Awards.

In 2018, Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes released the live album 23 Live At Brixton Academy, recorded at their sold-out headline show in 2017 where they had played every song from their first two albums.

Named after the Buddhist term for enlightenment, their third full-length End Of Suffering arrived in 2019 and peaked at No.4 on the UK albums chart with its critically acclaimed collection of emotionally charged grunge ballads, from the title track – a song on which Carter declares his love for his daughter – to Crowbar and Love Games.

Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes were revealed in Download 2021’s opening day line-up and as support for Biffy Clyro at their huge homecoming show at Glasgow’s Bellahouston Park in June 2021.

On 12 October 2020, Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes announced a one-off live gig from London’s O2 Academy Brixton on 13 November 2020 via MelodyVR. Called Brixton By Request, the show was designed to feature interactive elements never done before while bringing the band’s electrifying performance along with tracks from their Blossom deluxe edition, out on 23 October 2020, to life.

“There are few places like O2 Academy Brixton, a venue where you feel the history every time you walk out onto the stage. Our sold-out Brixton show a few years back was wild and we had to create a live album from it,” said Carter. “This time around we’re gonna give even more energy to you at home – and can’t wait to get energy back – with our exclusive interactive live show on MelodyVR.”


Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes are doing a live show on 13 November 2020 from O2 Academy Brixton in London that will be streamed on MelodyVR.

The band are also set to appear at Download Festival on 4 June 2021 and to provide support for Biffy Clyro during their Glasgow show at Bellahouston Park on 25 June 2021.

The immersive Brixton By Request show will feature the live debut of tracks from Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes’ forthcoming Blossom deluxe album. Streamed via MelodyVR, the rockers will invite fans onto the stage with them (virtually... and with a chance to invade it), pick the setlist and chat to the band via interactive screens.

Through MelodyVR’s live stream virtual reality technology, at-home audiences can join the action and be transported onto the state-of-the-art stage at the O2 Academy Brixton to experience Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes’ one-off performance, choosing from multiple camera angles to make the show their own.

No, Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes’ one-off show can be watched via the MelodyVR app on smartphones or with VR headsets.

Tickets for Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes’ live-stream gig Brixton By Request go on sale at 10:00 on Wednesday 14 October 2020.

Tickets to see the band at Download Festival and supporting Biffy Clyro in 2021 are on sale now.
