Frank Carter wants to work with Miguel.
The 32-year-old frontman of hardcore punk band Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes has expressed a wish to collaborate with the R 'n' B artist in the future, but said he would wait until his band have gained more of a following.
Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz, the ex-Gallows frontman said: "I'd love to work with Miguel. We've got a new album that we've been working on and I think it's a bit late for that, but definitely. I think album three, once we've established ourselves. We've only been a band for a year. But I think once people see what we're capable of and that we can't really be put in one pigeon hole, then we'll see what happens. We'll try and branch out. But I'd love to; he's got an amazing voice."
Frank - who is also a respected tattoo artist - met the 30-year-old singer when he came in to his shop for a tattoo.
Frank said: "He's a lovely guy. We talked about stage diving and pop music for ages. And tattoos, he's got a great collection of tattoos. He's a really nice guy."
The 'Devil Inside Me' singer also revealed that whilst he still keeps up his tattoo business, he is trying to do less of it in order to focus on spending time with his daughter.
He said: "I'm still tattooing, but I'm trying to do less of it. I'm trying to get some more time with my daughter at the minute, family time is really important and for a little while I was working two full time jobs which is just a bit much, so we just signed a new deal and that's given me a bit more freedom so focus on the music and raising a polite daughter."
Although he picked up the award for Spirit of Punk at the recent Kerrang! Awards, Frank said he wouldn't be getting a tattoo in commemoration of the occasion.
He said: "I don't get any more tattoos; I'm over that, I've got enough. Yeah, I've got enough f***ing tattoos."
