Frank Iero has announced his brand new album ‘Barriers’, under the new moniker of Frank Iero and the Future Violents.
The ex-backup vocalist for My Chemical Romance has just signed a brand new record deal with UNFD, and he’s pretty bloody stoked about it.
“Super excited to be joining the UNFD family,” said Iero in a statement. “We’ve known each other for a long time and the opportunity to be finally working together with people who really understand the project and believe in it is the greatest thing you could ever ask for.”
Iero also released a statement about the album’s premise and the process of creating it.
“It got me thinking about how we set up these obstacles around ourselves,” he said.
“Sometimes they’re for protection and sometimes they’re to keep people out, and sometimes we even set them up so that we fail and we find solace in that failure. But whenever I find something that scares the shit out of me, that’s when I know I have to do it! And so these songs are about experiences that were either walls I wanted to break down or walls that I’d built up around myself in order to protect myself. But these songs were also things that I’d never attempted before but had always wanted to try.”
Along with the announcement, Iero has teased the release of lead single ‘Young and Doomed’, which will be out tomorrow.
Barriers is out Friday, 31st May.
