With their brand new album ‘Sticky’ arriving on 15th October, Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes are giving us the latest taste of what to expect, teaming up with DIY fave Lynks for new track ‘Go Get A Tattoo’.
Inspired by Frank’s experience of having to shut his first tattoo parlour, Rose of Mercy, due to lockdown, he says, “Irreverent is a good word for that song. I’d worked my entire life to get to the point of getting a shop, and I’d finally achieved it, and I couldn’t even open the doors. So yes, when this is over, I need everyone to come and get a tattoo.
Lynks adds, “It is bloody irreverent actually. 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 2.”
