In one of his most honest and open interviews ever, Frank Carter sits down with Don’t Fret Club to talk about success, insecurities and making mistakes.
For episode 11, we catch Hertfordshire’s very own hardcore hero, Frank Carter, during a headline tour with The Rattlesnakes in Australia.
Frank discusses the overwhelming world that is the music industry, talking us through his highs and lows of being a frontman in Gallows, Pure Love and now with Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes.
We’re blown away by the singer’s honesty as we chat, and can’t thank him enough for opening up about his own insecurities and struggles.
“I used to be very nihilistic, or at least that’s what people thought but actually the reality is [that] I’m massively insecure. I have been my whole life.” Frank tells Don’t Fret Club.
“I’m a bit more confident now because I’m owning who I am a bit more, I have just taken on more ownership of myself and my actions. I’m a human being; I read stuff that strangers have written about me and it’s f**king hurtful, it’s pretty damaging stuff.”
But what’s even more inspiring is Frank’s positivity and encouragement as we continue our conversation about growing up and making mistakes.
“I’m truly embracing who I am on stage and I have a confidence with that that I never had before.” Frank adds. “I feel like I’ve successfully made the transition from what people expected from me at my shows to what I’m happy to give them.”
Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes release Modern Ruin on 20 January 2017.
