The trio of gigs will kick off December 6 and run until December 8 with support coming from IDestroy, Lambrini Girls and High Vis.
A presale will take place on Wednesday November 2 to members of Frank Carter And The Rattlesnakes’ mailing list before a general sale goes live at 10am GMT, Friday November 4.
Announcing the shows on Twitter, the band wrote: “We’re taking over the legendary venue The Underworld in Camden for three intimate and sweaty nights in December. We grew up going to shows at The Underworld as kids, shows by some of our favourite bands, shows that changed our lives and shaped who we are as performers.”

Speaking about the track, Carter said: “‘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,” he added.
