After tearing up The Asylum in March, Frank returns to do likewise at the O2 Institute as part of a gruelling world tour that takes in Australia and Europe. After leaving hardcore punk band Gallows in 2011, over those dreaded creative differences, Frank formed the mellower Pure Love before piledriving into the full on rage of The Rattlesnakes. Frank’s cathartic bellowing is complemented perfectly by juggernaut riffs that could’ve come straight from Bleach era Nirvana. Latest album Modern Ruin is a short sharp slab of riotous energy building on the power of debut Blossom. For a taste of Frank’s acid charged lyricism check out I Hate You, and whatever you do don’t upset him.

Support comes from Basement and Ecca Vandal. Full list of tour dates are as follows:


01 – Bristol, O2 Academy
o2 – Birmingham, O2 Institute
03 – Manchester, O2 Ritz
05 – Glasgow, O2 ABC
06 – Nottingham, Rock City
07 – Norwich, UEA
08 – London, O2 Academy Brixton
