Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes Announce North American Tour & Release "Vampires" Video

Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes, the British punk outfit helmed by former Gallows’ singer Frank Carter have announced their first North American tour.

“It's been a long time coming but we are finally pleased to announce we will be playing in the USA,” said Carter of the outing. “America is a home away from home for me and we will be doing everything in our power to hit as many states as we can this year. Come out to a show and get hectic with us.”

The band has also unveiled the beautifully rough and ready video for “Vampires,” which was shot by Tom Welsh while the band was on a European tour with Biffy Clyro, capturing the bristling energy and glorious exhilaration of a band at the very peak of their powers. Alternately filmed onstage and in corridors, in dressing rooms and from tour buses, it’s a thrilling document of life on the road.  The news of the North American tour and “Vampires” video arrive as the band prepare to head out on their third consecutive sold out tour of the U.K.

Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes has already been confirmed for several U.S. festivals including Rock on the Range, Shaky Knees, Northern Invasion, Welcome to Rockville, and Carolina Rebellion. Tickets for all club dates are on-sale now. Dinosaur Pile-Up and Royal Republic perform where noted below.
