Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes shared their brand new single ‘The Drugs,’ featuring indie legend Jamie T. The song comes with the video and can be heard below.
About the song, Frank Carter shared: “‘The Drugs’ was written after a few long conversations with some beautiful friends of mine who had been struggling with addiction. Life is a difficult journey, it’s easier with good friends around. Jamie and I had been talking about making music for years and when he asked me to sing on his tune ‘British Hell’ I jumped at the chance. When I asked him to sing on ‘The Drugs’ he returned the favour in perfect style.”
“Around 2007, when I met Jamie, was a wild time to be a young punk navigating the music industry,” he continues. “One of the things I learned very early was friends were hard to find, but when you found them you had to hold on tight. Jamie has been my friend since we bumped into each other backstage at a gig in Austin, Texas. Gallows had just finished playing a set, I had been punched in the face and he walked in and I just smiled a bloody smile and we’ve been friends ever since.”
