Looking to keep the flow of new music coming and follow up 2016′s Parachutes, Frank Iero and his band The Patience have just announced the release of a brand new EP titled Keep The Coffins Coming.
Produced by the legendary Steve Albini (Nirvana, Iggy & The Stooges, The Breeders), Keep The Coffins Coming will be a four-track release and will hit stores September 22nd via Hassel Records.
“When we were done touring Stomachaches, I talked to my manager Paul about what we should do,” explains Iero about how his new EP came together. “I had my bucket list and one of the things on there was to work with Steve Albini. Paul asked how long I’d wanted to work with Steve and I was like, ‘Since I was like, 11!’ I wanted to make a Steve Albini record! Paul said he’d call him and I was like, ‘You can’t do that… that would be weird. Don’t do it.’ And he was like, ‘That’s my job!’"
Iero continued to add, “He called him, Steve said he could do it and he had three days. Next phone call I made was U-Haul; I fuckin’ packed the U-Haul up and drove the band to Chicago. I got to record an EP with my friends and one of my heroes in this, like, giant firehouse building in Chicago. The EP is this missing link between Stomachaches and Parachutes. It’s everything I wanted it to be. It’s fuckin’ awesome!”
