Golden Robot Signs Frank Carter and the Rattlesnakes
Australia’s Golden Robot Records has struck a licensing deal with Britain’s Frank Carter and the Rattlesnakes covering Australia, the U.S., Canada and New Zealand.
The band is currently working on its album debut for the deal.
Golden Robot Global Entertainment Group CEO and president, Mark Alexander-Erber, said the band has been on its radar for many years.
“To finally have them as part of our international rock n roll family is a real achievement for Golden Robot Records,” he said.
“We are super excited to be involved with the band and their brilliant management team (ATC Management) in the U.K.
“The next few singles are rippers and the album for 2023 will take the band again to another level globally.”
It’s certainly a much-anticipated record, with their last album “Sticky” from 2021 their hardest-hitting to date.
They’ve graduated from tiny clubs throughout the U.K. to major festivals such as Leeds, Download, Hellfest and Reading.
But Frank Carter and the Rattlesnakes are also one of the most non-misogynistic acts around, lashing out at metal bands that in 2022 still write lyrics demeaning to women.
Before one U.K. festival, the band told the audience only women or non-binary individuals could enter the mosh-pit or crowd surf during “Wild Flowers”.
“It’s the most important part of rock ‘n’ roll,” Carter told Far Out magazine.
“Rock ‘n’ roll should never have been exclusive. It’s for the people.
“Going out of our way to make our shows inclusive is our responsibility, and literally, it’s the least we can do.”
In 2015 Frank Carter and the Rattlesnakes released their debut EP “Rotten” and album “Blossom”.
Their second album, “Modern Ruin”, saw the band complete their current lineup with Carter on vocals, Dean Richardson on guitar, Tom ‘Tank’ Barclay on bass, Russell Elliot on guitar and Gareth Grover on drums.
2019 brought their third album “End of Suffering” until covid closed the industry and they made their fourth album “Sticky” in lockdown, featuring a guest appearance from Joe Talbot of Idles on lead track “My Town”, and injecting post-pandemic issues as mental health and anxiety into their music.
