While we may not be getting the My Chemical Romance reunion we had all be hoping for (sigh), there will be new music coming from one particular My Chem member.
After already giving fans a new album as a member of the electronic duo Death Spells featuring James Dewees of The Get Up Kids and Reggie And The Full Effect, Frank Iero is back with a new-ish band to release a brand new full-length dubbed Parachutes.
Offically named Frank Iero and The Patience, in place of the former moniker frnkiero andthe cellabration, Iero touched on the updated name saying, "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 regards to the new record, which was produced by Ross Robinson and Steve Evetts and will be released October 28 via Hassle Records, Iero states that the title Parachutes has a very precise meaning to him.
"Parachutes are life saving devices. We rely on them to bring us back from the brink of death. Whether we fall or jump, they are the only things keeping us alive. Such as with life, we are all just falling or plunging to an eventual end, but the love of my family and my ability to create art and music has always been my parachute.”
Iero continued to add, “The act of living can be random and strange, beautiful and ugly at the same time and the only thing that is undeniably certain is eventually we are all gonna hit the ground. Some of us plummet at an incredible rate and it’s over in a flash, but some of us get saved and are able to enjoy the view for a little while….This album is one of my parachutes.”
