‘Self Love’ follows previous singles ‘Man Of The Hour’ and ‘Brambles’, which both paved the way for an album of evident reflection and introspection.

Discussing what the latest single means and the life philosophy it puts forward, Frank Carter has explained:

“‘Self Love’ is a mantra to live by in honour of the relationship that truly matters, the relationship you have with yourself. 

“It can be easy to neglect yourself while spending energy fighting to win love from other people. 

“If you really care for yourself you realise you don’t need anyone else to be happy, and quite often when you stop looking for what you want the universe gives you exactly what you need.”

Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes are of course set to embark on shows throughout the UK, Europe, Australia and USA in support of the new album.
