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 mosh pits, 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 – on which Carter declares his love for his daughter – to Crowbar and Love Games.

Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes performed a one-off live gig from London’s O2 Academy Brixton on 13 November 2020 via MelodyVR.

In June 2021, Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes were revealed as one of the headliners for Download's 2021 Pilot Event.
