Following an incredible headline slot at June's Download Pilot, Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes are keeping the momentum going by announcing a brand-new album and huge UK / European headline tour.

Frank and co. have also dropped the title-track, Sticky, from their upcoming fourth album – the follow-up to 2019's End Of Suffering – with the frontman announcing that the single is "about that moment where you’re drunk at a bus stop at 3am. You know there are no more buses, but you sit there anyway because you’re too fucked to figure out your options. Your kebab is on the floor, there’s a Stella in your pocket, and you’re woken up by a dirty little fox eating your shoes."

Sticky – the album – is due out on October 15, and features guest spots from Lynks, IDLES' Joe Talbot (on My Town), Cassyette and Bobby Gillespie.

Frank says of the LP as a whole: "Someone described it to me as ‘they felt their youth’ when they were listening to the record. When you make albums, those are the ones you want to make. Nostalgic, but classic. Timeless, and also modern."
