Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes team up with Cassyette for powerful new single, Off With His Head

Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes and Cassyette address the plague” of a patriarchal society on new collab Off With His Head.

After performing the song live together at Download Pilot in June, the official studio version of Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes’ unsurprisingly killer collab with Cassyette has been released.

The pair have joined forces for powerful single Off With His Head, taken from upcoming album Sticky (which is due out on October 15 and also features guest spots from Lynks, IDLES’ Joe Talbot on My Town, and Bobby Gillespie).

Frank says of the meaning of the track: Patriarchal society is a plague; it’s a pyramid scheme. It has strict regulations regarding who and how it benefits and is unique in its ability to oppress people at the exact same time it benefits them.

Off With His Head is a scathing generalised attack on trolls whose only joy in life is flexing their sixth-form grammar and Proud Boy mentality with the same smug tact as both sides of the fence in Good Will Hunting.

The patriarchy is the worst because it enables all men to exist in a greater quality of life than all women and children, and while doing so, it also organises the men into an untenable hierarchy that excludes a high percentage of men. Patriarchal society is designed to support apex predators.”

The frontman also says of Sticky 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.”
