Singer reveals what gives him the shivers…

Gallows’ frontman Frank Carter has revealed that he is petrified of whales.

The singer explained to NME.COM that his comparative size next to a whale was what first made him scared of the sea mammals.

“I first realised how big they were when I went to the Natural History Museum as a kid,” he said. “I’m not a big fella so that fucker could have swallowed me whole and not even noticed.

“I still get freaked out watching them on TV. I don’t even think I could ever be in a boat near one.”
