Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes enthüllen neue Single “The Drugs” mit Jamie T

Hi and welcome to Lila's news!


One of the most exciting collaborations reached us yesterday that fans of both acts have been eagerly awaiting: Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes published together with Jamie T their latest single "The Drugs", who bring punk back to life in a raw live setting.


The duo behind Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes has made a name for itself since its formation in 2015 that has long ceased to be an insider tip. With four studio albums and a fan base that transcends genre conventions, the band has established itself in the scene over the past five years, not only with their music, but also with the attitude they are known for: The band is above all against the patriachart, injustice as well as toxic masculinity, which then also quickly results in a "woman only" mosh pit. Their freedom-loving sound, with its mix of rock, punk and hardcore, as well as the image they project, is exactly the combination that gives the band such a strong expressiveness.


Jamie T is an exceptional musician who mainly mixes everyday sounds into his music and combines them with classical instruments. The singer-songwriter with a unique blend of indie, rock and pop has received due recognition for his music this year with his latest album "The Theory of Whatever"was number 1 in the UK. On 30 June 2023, the musician will be headlining at Finsbury Park in front of 45,000 people, and we recommend you go to London for the concert and not to miss this unique experience.


The perhaps initially unequal combination harmonises in their new single "The Drugs" very well, as both stand for an unconventional sound that speaks for itself. The new song strikes both familiar rough tones of the band, which directly invite to party, but also has a little bit of Jamie Twho has let something of his sound flow into it. Frank Carter tells:


“‘The Drugs’ wurde nach einigen langen Gesprächen mit einigen wunderbaren Freunden von mir geschrieben, die mit ihrer Sucht zu kämpfen hatten. Das Leben ist eine schwierige Reise, aber es ist einfacher, wenn man gute Freunde um sich hat. Jamie und ich hatten schon seit Jahren darüber gesprochen, Musik zu machen, und als er mich bat, auf seinem Song ‘British Hell’ zu singen, ergriff ich die Chance.  Als ich ihn bat, auf ‘The Drugs’ zu singen, revanchierte er sich in perfektem Stil. Als ich Jamie 2007 kennenlernte, war das eine wilde Zeit für einen jungen Punk, der sich in der Musikindustrie bewegte. Eines der Dinge, die ich sehr früh gelernt habe, ist, dass Freunde schwer zu finden sind, aber wenn man sie gefunden hat, muss man sie festhalten. Jamie ist mein Freund, seit wir uns bei einem Gig in Austin, Texas, hinter der Bühne begegnet sind. Gallows hatten gerade ihren Auftritt beendet, ich hatte einen Schlag ins Gesicht bekommen, und er kam herein, und ich lächelte ihn blutigen Zähnen an, und seitdem sind wir Freunde.”


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