MISTLE­TOE & WHINE

FIVE THINGS WE LEARNED FROM GO­ING TO WIN­TER WON­DER­LAND WITH FRANK CARTER

Kerrang! (UK) - - Frank Carter -

1 FRANK IS A CRACKSHOT AT THE RI­FLE RANGE

It’s no co­in­ci­dence Frank man­ages to hit the mark with his first shot at the ri­fle stall. “I own a ri­fle and oc­ca­sion­ally go to this small-ish range not far from my house.” So that’s why no-one tries to bur­gle him…

2 …BUT HE’S NOT AS GOOD WITH A BOW AND AR­ROW

Frank’s begin­ner’s luck on the ri­fle range didn’t last, as he strug­gled to pop any of the bal­loons on the board in front of him. “That was im­pos­si­ble,” he moans. “Best stick to guns…”

3 HE’S TAKEN UP BOX­ING

Af­ter eye­ing up a cou­ple of Strong­man Chal­lenges, Frank re­veals how he found a new way to keep up fit­ness over the course of a drain­ing year. “I started box­ing this sum­mer – on tour, I have this cathar­tic and vi­o­lent out­let from play­ing. When I come off, that en­ergy gets con­tained… Box­ing gives me fo­cus.”

4 HE DOESN’T LIKE SUBDEGREE TEM­PER­A­TURES

Frank is not im­pressed with the -10° arc­tic chill of the Ice Bar, and even less so with the Game Of Thrones-style ther­mals given to pro­tect us. “Let’s get out of here,” he grunts, be­fore any­one starts eye­ing up the bar menu.

5 HE SPENT LOADS OF MONEY ON A CHIROPRACTOR

Though ex­cited by the prospect of fair­ground rides and a spot of dodgems, Frank de­cides against it as he’d re­cently “blown a wad of cash on a chiropractor” and it’s not worth un­do­ing any of the ex­pen­sive work done. Bah, hum­bug!
