Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes have released new single ‘The Drugs’ featuring Jamie T.

“‘The Drugs’ was written after a few long conversations with some beautiful friends of mine who had been struggling with addiction”, says Carter. “Life is a difficult journey, it’s easier with good friends around. Jamie and I had been talking about making music for years and when he asked me to sing on his tune ‘British Hell’ I jumped at the chance. When I asked him to sing on ‘The Drugs’ he returned the favour in perfect style”.

“Around 2007, when I met Jamie, was a wild time to be a young punk navigating the music industry”, he goes on. “One of the things I learned very early was friends were hard to find, but when you found them you had to hold on tight. Jamie has been my friend since we bumped into each other backstage at a gig in Austin, Texas. Gallows had just finished playing a set, I had been punched in the face and he walked in and I just smiled a bloody smile and we’ve been friends ever since”.

“Two sides of the same coin, Frank and I”, Jamie T adds.

Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes will be heading out on a European tour in November and December. Watch the video for ‘The Drugs’ here:
