Let Us Introduce Frank Iero and The Future Violents

The Tour Starts Now

My Chemical Romance guitarist Frank Iero has toiled in several projects over the years, but he’s ready to reveal his new group. Frank Iero and the Future Violents and they just unleashed their new video for “Young and Doomed,” the lead single from their forthcoming album Barriers.
The clip for the raucous track finds the five-piece outfit performing while often being shot in silhouette or shadowed partially by projected imagery. Joining Iero in the band are Evan Nestor, Matt Armstrong, Tucker Rule and Kayleigh Goldsworthy.

For Iero, this is the continuation of his solo career, having previously released recorded under the monikers Frank Iero and the Cellabration and Frank Iero and Patience. “I never expected to do one solo record in my lifetime, let alone three,” states Iero. “Every time I start a new record, I say to myself ‘This is it. This is the end. This is the last one.’ It got me thinking about how we set up these obstacles around ourselves. 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.”

The Barriers album is on track for a May 31 street date, and fans can now get the “Young and Doomed” single via digital service providers and streaming services. “Barriers is a record that I still can’t believe I made and I’m so incredibly proud of it,” Iero reflects. “I can’t wait for other people to be shocked and appalled and inspired by it. Hopefully it scares the shit out of them.” To check out the artwork and track listing for the new album, take a look below.
