Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes Release New Track ‘Parasite’

Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes have also announced that they are taking over London’s iconic Underworld for three nights.

A lot of lovely and cool things incoming from Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes.

First up, they have released a new track.

It’s called ‘Parasite’ and is a caustic punk rager, full of dark sentiment and gristle-covered attitude as they muse on the toxic elements of modern dating.

Frank had this to say about it:

“‘Parasite’ was conceived on a particularly brutal trip to the seaside where both Dean and I were in a difficult time in our lives and feeling low. It rained for a week straight, and I visited Beachy Head every day and I walked the beaches below the cliff and stared at the sea. I spent hours on the phone to various friends around the world and listened to their relationship problems, but I had no words of comfort, no solutions to find. Instead, I just listened and I soaked it up. The collective witnessed horrors of the worldwide dating pool seemed to mirror experiences closer to home. On the last day of the trip at midnight I began writing and by 3am a new Parasite had been discovered.”

Here it is:

It follows on from ‘The Drugs’, which features Jamie T, and sounds like this:

On top of that, the band have announced that they are going to be taking over the Underworld in London for a three-night residency.

Frank had this to say:

“The Underworld is a legendary London venue; I grew up going to shows there as a kid and saw some of my favourite bands play shows there that changed my life and shaped who I was as a performer. From playing there with Gallows in 2005, to playing Pure Love’s final show there in 2014 and then selling it out a year later with Rattlesnakes, it feels fitting to return to one of the greatest punk rock and metal venues not only in London, but the world to close out 2022 and round off a month of gigs with Rattlesnakes.”

Here are the dates, and the bands who will be supporting them:


06 – LONDON Underworld (IDestroy)
07 – LONDON Underworld (Lambrini Girls)
08 – LONDON Underworld (High Vis)
