Frank Carter & the Rattlesnakes
Frank Carter & the Rattlesnakes
In case you didn't know Frank Carter is the former Gallows and Pure Love front man – two bands that couldn't be much further apart if they tried – one that pushed punk and hardcore into the British mainstream, the other are more upbeat expansive sound. His new project Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes is firmly in the camp of angry snarling and fierce. They emerged seemingly out of nowhere earlier this year with the single 'Fangs'.
After eight years, two albums and countless tours, Dinosaur Pile-Up have taken their sound harder, faster and terrifyingly heavier than ever before with third album "ELEVEN ELEVEN", released late last year on So Recordings. Dinosaur Pile-Up are reborn – ravenous for bigger crowds, broader stages and the fresh blood of fans' ears.

To give you an idea of Dinosaur Pile-Up's definition of 'hard and fast' just glance at what they achieved on the live circuit in the last couple of years. The States three times, Japan four times, Europe, India and their native UK (Including tours with Brand New and Weezer). That's a hell of an itinerary for a live show as notoriously savage as theirs.

It's striking that ELEVEN ELEVEN, expertly sculpted by producer Tom Dalgety (Royal Blood), is the first album to be recorded by more members than just Matt. From day one the band has been Matt's vision, filling the roles of songwriter, guitarist, singer, bassist and drummer singlehandedly. But now, in this new era of Dinosaur Pile-Up, he's handed drum duty over to Mike Sheils (a member since 2010) and bass over to Jim Cratchley (who joined in 2014), allowing Matt to focus on crafting bigger, more brutish hooks than their previous two outings.

In case you were sleeping, debut album Growing Pains (2010) rudely introduced a vivid and chaotic band, built on a turbo-charged bedrock of Foo Fighters, Weezer and Nirvana. Second outing Nature Nurture (2013) saw the band's sound develop a near-split personality, with calmer surf-rock riffs lulling listeners into a safe place before revving their menacing motor back up and ramming audiences straight back into the pit.

Now though, with their third album heralding darker, more intense vibes – and invoking comparisons to Deftones, Smashing Pumpkins and Nirvana – there'll be no more sleeping for you.
