Our weekly round up of this week's biggest new tours, shows and events.
Ahead of their main stage performances at this weekend’s Reading and Leeds Festivals, Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes have confirmed details of their forthcoming End of Suffering Tour.
The newly announced dates see the band headline shows in Manchester, Glasgow and London in February 2020.
Formed in 2015 by former Gallows and Pure Love frontman Frank Carter, Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes have quickly become one of the biggest punk rock bands to emerge from the UK scene in recent years.
Earlier this year the band released their third studio album End of Suffering, featuring the singles Crowbar, Anxiety and Kitty Sucker.
The record is the band’s most commercially successful release to date, peaking at No.4 on the Official UK Albums Chart.
A hit with critics as well as fans, End of Suffering received rave reviews with DIY describing the album as “a bold, brave effort that’ll continue to see them rise through the rock ranks”.
Produced by Cam Blackwood (George Ezra, Florence + the Machine) the album also features a guest appearance from Rage Against The Machine guitarist Tom Morello.
End of Suffering follows 2017’s Modern Ruin and the band’s 2015 debut album Blossom.
A fixture of the British rock scene for more than 14 years, Frank Carter first came to prominence as the frontman of Watford punk rockers Gallows, who infamously signed a £1 million record deal with Warner Records at the height of their success.
Carter recorded three albums with the band; 2006’s Orchestra of Wolves, 2009’s Grey Britain and 2012’s Gallows before leaving to form Pure Love in 2011.
A departure from the hardcore punk rock of Gallows, Pure Love released the LP Anthems in 2013 before going on indefinite hiatus a year later with Frank Carter going on to form Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes.
Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes have spent most of the past summer on tour supporting rock legends Foo Fighters across Europe and this bank holiday weekend the band will perform on the main stage at Reading and Leeds Festivals.
Here are Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes newly announced UK dates:
12 February 2020 – Manchester Academy
13 February 2020 – Barrowland, Glasgow
15 February 2020 – Alexandra Palace, London
Tickets for the newly announced shows will be available from 10:00 Friday 30 August 2019 through Ticketmaster.co.uk
