The UK’s Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes have released their third album, End Of Suffering, on May 3rd. Created in just six months, Frank and Dean (Richardson) have put together a 40-minute album that is jam-packed with honest lyricism that is delivered alongside a combination of grunge, soul, and a healthy dose of rock ‘n’ roll.
Named after the Buddhist term for Enlightenment, End of Suffering is the most honest album to date from the duo. Having had just come off a tour and dealing with personal issues, there was a lot going on, which served as inspiration. The album’s title is appropriate, as it is a reminder that even though we all go through some rough times, there’s always that light at the end of the tunnel.
I really dig the album. The musical style somewhat reminds me of The Neighbourhood and Muse; the former in the way that Frank sings, and the latter in much of the electronic sound (which is totally cool with me, because I freaking love both of those bands). Frank does have a little punk rock in his voice that most definitely sets him apart. This unique-sounding trifecta, in tandem with heavy electric riffs and slower tempos, creates that sound that is uniquely and unequivocally Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes.
End Of Suffering is available now, so be sure to check it out and grab your copy on all major platforms. Also, be sure to check out their video for “Anxiety” below!
