Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes have announced a 2017 UK and Ireland tour.

They’ll head out on the road in March in support of upcoming second album Modern Ruin, which is due for release on January 27, via International Death Cult.

The band previously issued Lullaby and Snake Eyes from the follow-up to last year’s debut Blossom.

Frontman Carter says: “Thank you to everyone who came out and lost their minds with us at our sold out tour – here’s a fresh one for you all.

“It’s been a truly amazing feeling playing shows with such a passionate, fun and respectful atmosphere. So I cannot wait to be back again in March – but this time with a brand new album.

“We have also put together a special signed album, photo print and ticket bundle for you. So you can preorder your new favourite album, secure your place in the pit, listen to Modern Ruin every day from January 27 and then roll into the tour for the gig of the year.”

Tickets for the Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes tour go on sale via SeeTickets this Friday (November 18) at 10am GMT.
