Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes are today sharing new single ‘Brambles’, the second song to be taken from their forthcoming album Dark Rainbow, out 26th January 2024. It follows recent new album cut ‘Man of the Hour’, which saw support across BBC Radio 1 from Clara Amfo, Dan P Carter and Jack Saunders, as well as at Clash, DIY, Dork, Evening Standard, Guitar World, Kerrang!, The Line of Best Fit, Louder, NME, Rock Sound and Rolling Stone UK.

‘Brambles’ comes on with a palpable sense of foreboding and menace, and arrives as something of a plea for a perfect love. It’s a song that probes for an answer to why we give ourselves over to the pain that can come from relationships, Carter singing “Why does our love feel like brambles?”

It’s another song that leans into Dark Rainbow’s path of self-evaluation and reflection. ‘Brambles’ claustrophobic atmosphere is ripped apart as Carter’s roaring vocal bursts the chorus wide open. Frank Carter explains further:

“Brambles is a melancholic bop born from the bramble thorns of love we let grow around us until we are tangled with no method of escaping unscathed. Like our neural pathways become stronger and deeper with each unconscious action, the thorns of love hook deeper and the brambles wrap tighter until we are barely recogniseable and even our loved ones can no longer comfort us or lead us to safety for fear of being cut and torn themselves. An ode to the passion of love and a warning not to get lost in it when you go looking.”

In the wake of Dark Rainbow‘s release in January, the band will also be embarking on their biggest tour to date as they announce details of headline shows through the UK, Europe, Australia and USA for 2024.
