Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes Premieres New Song “Go Get A Tattoo” featuring Lynks on BBC Radio 1
- British punk-rock band Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes, consisting of Frank Carter, Dean Richardson, Tom 'Tank' Barclay and Gareth Grover, premiered a new song “Go Get A Tattoo” on BBC Radio 1's Future Sounds.
This time, the band teamed up with British electro-punk artist Lynks on the track.
The accompanying music video was directed by Thomas Davis, starring Sean Hart.
The song will appear on their upcoming fourth studio album “Sticky”, which is set to be released on October 15, 2021.
“This song is a love letter to tattooing and how it's made me feel over the years,” Frank Carter said of the song. “Without tattooing, I wouldn't be the person I am. It gives me a way to get closer to friends, family and fans, and provides intimate connections with people to create memories that can last lifetimes. I signed the lease for my first ever tattoo shop Rose of Mercy on March 1, 2020. Within 3 weeks, we were closed and I had no idea when we were going to open. I'm not sure if I ever truly took tattooing for granted (I'd like to think I've always had respect for it), but I do know that I won't ever take it for granted in the future, and when this global pandemic is over, I will be traveling more and tattooing constantly as it's a gift and should be shared. So, if you are stuck in a rut, or you need to mark a big moment, or you fancy a permanent change, or you just want to look cooler, look for the rose.”
- “It is bloody irreverent, actually,” Lynks said. “I mean, I'm literally here singing about tattoos with not a single one on my body. Am I a poser? Probably. But the song still bangs. I'm so used to singing over bleeps and bloops and shit, so when Frank coerced me into becoming a rock and roll star I was initially hesitant. But now I'm fully converted. I think I'm gonna burn the synths and invest in a Stratocaster or two.”
The new album comprises of 10-track, featuring guest appearances from Lynks, Joe Talbot, Cassyette and Bobby Gillespie.
It is their first album in two years.
