Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes have teamed up with Jamie T on their new single "The Drugs".

"The Drugs", teamed with a Nick Suchak-directed video, marks Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes' first new material of 2022, and follows Jamie T's The Theory of Whatever album.

Carter says of the single, ""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," Carter 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."

Jamie T adds, "Two sides of the same coin, Frank and I."

Last year Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes released their latest album Sticky.

"The Drugs" featuring Jamie T is out now.
