Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes collaborate with Idles, Joe Talbot on New Single

The English punk rockers have returned after a more than 12-month hiatus with the new single My Town.

Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes have joined forces with Idles frontman Joe Talbot releasing their first new music since 2019. The long hiatus from the band occurred because frontman, Carter, was involved in a serious car accident in the autumn of that year.

Carter explains that the new single My Town is a collaboration between the two artists, born from their “collective mental health falling apart.”

“It’s easy to dissociate when it’s someone else’s problem, but we are each responsible for keeping the streets clean, looking out for our fellow neighbours and acting with kindness and respect as we walk through life,” says Carter.

“We can look into this town and see the seedy underbelly, the dirt, the disdain, the undercurrent of hate and despair. And then we are reminded that My Town looks just like yours, and no one gives a fuck at all, and if we don’t start looking after ourselves soon, then we are all going to be in big trouble.”

Carter and Talbot became friends after they met at an IDLES gig. Carter claims the meeting had a tremendous effect on him. It was a natural progression for the two to work together on new music.

Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes will debut My Town’ live on Amazon Music Sessions Rock Scene takeover on Twitch on Thursday (29.04.21), 6PM GMT+1, for which they will be supported by WARGASM.
