Frank Carter announces UK tour
He'll play run of dates in the country during European tour with the Rattlesnakes
Frank Carter And The Rattlesnakes have announced a UK and European tour in support of their debut album Blossom, due August 14 via International Death Cult.
The Rattlesnakes delivered their debut live performance at London's Sang Bleu in May before playing a run of shows in the UK last month.
The band will launch Blossom with a pair of acoustic sets at record stores in Kingston and St. Albans before playing an official album release show at London’s Borderline on August 18 and appearances at the Reading and Leeds festivals.
Carter will introduce the album at two European festivals in August and a series of shows in Germany in September before launching a proper UK run.
Carter says: “If you are a member of the Rattlesnakes mailing list then you can get access to pre-sale tickets from 9am on Wednesday! If you aren't on the mailing list then tickets will be on general sale from Friday at 9am.
“Let's just take a minute to remind ourselves that the last show we had tickets for sold out in three hours. And our first tour sold out half the shows with only three songs. Don’t be a sucker – get a ticket for this tour or be forever disappointed. You have been warned.”
He adds: “Things are getting exciting now – and I haven't even mentioned support acts yet.”
