FRANK IERO and the PATIENCE. announces second album

Months after changing the name of his new group, former My Chemical Romance guitarist Frank Iero has announced plans to release a new album. On Wednesday (Sept. 7), the vocalist/guitarist confirmed not only the group’s new moniker, but also the title of their sophomore album. The new record will be titled Parachutes and is set to be released on Oct. 28 through Hassle Records.

“It’s a team that had been on my mind for a while. I heard stories about Ross that scared me to death, but honestly, nothing could have prepared me for the reality of what it is like to work with him,” explained Iero about working with producer Ross Robinson on the new album earlier this year.

“It was the most heartbreaking yet uplifting, depleting yet inspiring experience I have ever had. I found out things about myself and the songs I was writing that changed me forever. I am so proud of this record, it really took everything I had, and I know I could not have made it with anyone else.”

When he reached the topic about changing the band’s name from Frnkiero and the cellabration to Frank Iero and the Patience, he had the following to say: “When I first started this journey, I brought a band along that filled in the gaps of what I lacked. I was uncomfortable in my position, so I brought a celebration or a ‘cellabration’ to distract from my awkwardness. Now, in my life, I need to learn how to slow down and love where I am. I need the patience to appreciate the now.”

In addition to the official name changes and the new title of the album, Iero and company have also released the lead single from the upcoming album. The new song is titled “I’m a Mess” and can currently be streamed below.

According to Iero’s social media accounts, he advises fans to keep an eye out for more news later this week which will feature some upcoming tour stops. Parachutes is the follow-up to the band’s 2014 release, stomachaches.

Reading and Leeds Unveil Full 2015 Line-Up


If you though Bonnaroo had a cool way if veiling the artists for this year’s line-up, then Reading and Leeds might have a slightly cooler way of unveiling the third and final headliner for this year’s event.

The British festival took to Facebook to post anonymous letter which read: “Yeah, so I just woke up but like, I dunno, I just can’t stop thinking about Reading and Leeds and how much I’m looking forward to playing Reading and Leeds 2015.”

Everyone following were left to guess who the third headlining spot, alongside Metallica and Mumford and Sons, would be given to until Zane Lowe’s BBC Radio 1 show went live. During the show, it was revealed that the third headliner spot was given to The Libertines.

“Reading has always been a special festival to me, it’s where I misspent a lot of my youth. I saw Rage against the Machine there when I was a nipper, which inspired a lot in me. Zack de la Rocha set me on a path, he bridged the gap between my bedroom and Velvet Underground and Jimi Hendrix and the Doors and showed me what it really was to be up on that stage in front of all those people” frontman Carl Barat told NME about their big headlining gig.

“It’s pretty dizzying to be alongside Metallica, I used to love them when I was a kid. They were up there with Michael Jackson and James Dean.”

But while Barat and the rest of the Libertines (including a sober Pete Doherty, we hope) are headlining, a slew of over 50 more acts were also revealed including Kendrick Lamar, American Football, Panic! at the Disco, New Found Glory, Simple Plan, Bring Me The Horizon, Pierce the Veil, Frnkiero and the cellabration, and many more (though there are two special guests still unannounced).

Check out the complete line-up for Reading and Leeds 2015 slated to take place during the weekend of August 28-30. All information about the festival including tickets can be seen on their websites here and here.


Frnkiero andthe cellabration to Headline U.K. Tour


Frankiero andthe cellabration recently revealed they will be heading out on their first ever headlining tour here in North America following a year of playing supporting act for several bands including Taking Back Sunday and The Used.

Now, the band will be taking the show to the United Kingdom for their first ever U.K. headlining tour. Last year, they toured the U.K. as a supporting act for Mallory Knox.

In a statement, Iero said, “I’m really looking forward to taking this full record to the UK in April. When making Stomachaches, I really wanted you to feel like you were listening in on the songs as opposed to listening to them. And I believe the venues chosen for this headline run will support that idea.”

Iero’s North American headlining tour will begin on Feb. 18 at The Studio at Webster Hall in New York and wrap up on Apr. 2 in Iero’s home state of New Jersey at The Stone Pony in Asbury Park.

After that, the band will pack up their stuff and head across the pond for a nine-day trek beginning at The Deaf Institute in Manchester and then wrap up at the Wedgewod Rooms in Portsmouth.

Time to Go “Joyriding” with Frnkiero andthe Cellabration


Last week, former My Chemical Romance guitarist Frank Iero and his new project premiered their music video for the creepy, but cool “Weighted.”

Yesterday, Frnkiero andthe Cellabration premiered another new track from their upcoming debut record, Stomachaches. If the new song, “Joyriding,” sounds oddly familiar to some of you, it’s the song that Iero posted last year when word first go around that he would be pursuing a side project after the official end of My Chem.

Check out the official studio version of the track below.

Stomachaches comes out on August 26 through Staple Records. If you currently pre-order the album, you can receive an instant download of both “Weighted” and “Joyriding.”

The newly formed band will be heading out on tour with Taking Back Sunday and The Used beginning in early September and wrapping up in early October.

Stream Frnkiero and the Celllabration’s New Song


Frank Iero recently announced his new project, Frnkiero and the Cellabration and it looks like the guitarist’s new project is showing no signs of slowing down.

After announcing the band, Iero went on to reveal that they would be releasing their debut album soon. Then, news came that Iero and company would be hitting the road with former tour mates and My Chemical Romance buddy bands, Taking Back Sunday and The Used. Iero told fans that the music he had created under the new moniker, would be performed for the first time ever in front of a crowd during this tour.

Yesterday during the day, Iero revealed he would be releasing one of the songs from the upcoming debut album at night. Sticking to his word, “Weighted” was unveiled.

Frnkiero and the Cellabration’s album stomachaches is set to be released on August 26 via Staple Records.

Frnkiero and the Cellabration to Join Taking Back Sunday and The Used on Tour


Taking Back Sunday and The Used recently announced that they will be joining forces once again to travel around the country for the second time in 2014. After a successful tour at in support of both their new albums, Taking Back Sunday for Happiness Is… and The Used for Imaginary Enemy, the two bands decided to hit the road together one more time.

Today, it was announced that former My Chemical Romance guitarist, Frank Iero and his new band, Frnkiero and the Cellabration are set to be opening up for Taking Back Sunday and The Used on the upcoming new dates.

“I’m really looking forward to getting on the road and finally playing these songs live,” Iero said.

“It’s strange, while making ‘Stomachaches’ I never got to really play the songs before recording them, because for the most part, it was just me, making them all by myself late at night in my basement. So it’s kind of a scary and exciting experience for me right now to finally hear these songs come to life in a live setting. And I’m glad to be able to be doing it with old friends like Taking Back Sunday and The Used.”

Frnkiero and the Cellabrations’ debut album is set to be released on August 26.

Frank Iero Announces New Project


If any My Chemical Romance fans were hoping that the tenth anniversary of Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge would bring the band back together, it looks like most of our hopes and dreams were squashed when the anniversary came and went and not even a single peep was heard about it.

At this point, we have already seen how most members of the now-defuct band have moved on. Frontman Gerard Way announced he would be doing some solo stuff, even releasing his first track, “Action Cat” last week. Former bassist Mikey Way’s new project Electric Century is one of Alternative Press’ up-and-coming acts of 2014 while former guitarist Ray Toro is just floating around. Other former guitarist, Frank Iero has been keeping himself busy since the break-up announcement and now, he’s revealed another new project titled, frnkiero and the cellabration.

The new project will be releasing their debut album, stomachaches on August 26 through Staple Records. Aside from the band name and the debut album’s titled, we have also gotten the full track list for the upcoming record, which can be seen below.
