A day or so after announcing the release of his third solo studio album, Frank Iero is back with the official music video for the record’s lead single. On Thursday (March 21), the former My Chemical Romance guitarist shared the music video for “Young and Doomed.”
The four-minute clip primarily features the group on a soundstage with a white sheet behind them. As the music video progresses, we see the band performing the new song as footage of cells are projected on them and the white backdrop. Halfway through the clip, childhood photos of Iero and his bandmates (Evan Nestor, Matt Armstrong, Tucker Rule, and Kayleigh Goldsworthy) are superimposed on the adult versions of themselves as they sing the lyrics to the new tune.
The track, which has been described as a “dark rock n’ roll anthem,” made its world premiere on BBC Radio 1’s Future Sounds with Annie Mac. Watch the music video for “Young and Doomed” above.
“Young and Doomed” is the first single off Frank Iero and the Future Violents upcoming album. Barriers is due out May 31 through the act’s new home of UNFD. Pre-orders for the new record can be found here. Barriers was recorded and mixed by Steve Albini at Electrical Audio in Chicago and is the follow-up to Iero’s 2016 release, Parachutes.
In support of the album’s release, Iero and company will embark on a headlining summer jaunt. The trek begins on May 29 at the Foundry in Philadelphia and concludes a month later on June 22 at Rock Off Cruise in New York.
Before heading out on their own tour, Iero and the Future Violents will hit the road alongside Taking Back Sunday for the latter’s North American 20th-anniversary tour.
