Frank Iero Signs With UNFD & Announces New Album ‘Barriers’

UPDATE: The new single is now live and there’s a sweet My Chemical Romance reference. See if you can spot it.

Frank Iero (yes THAT Frank Iero) has officially signed with UNFD and announced the imminent release of his forthcoming new album Barriers set for release on May 31st, 2019.

The album will be a followup to the absolutely amazing Parachutes and comes once again with a name change for the band with Frank Iero rebranding his band as Frank Iero and the Future Violents.

Frank Iero had this to say in a press release about the signing with UNFD:

We’ve known each other for a long time and the opportunity to be finally working together with people who really understand the project and believe in it is the greatest thing you could ever ask for.”

Frank Iero also detailed the creation of Barriers, which was produced by none other than the legend Steve Albini:

“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 first single entitled ‘Young And Doomed‘ will be dropping on March 21st. We will definitely be updating this post once it hits the internet so it can be injected straight into your ear holes. Pre-order information will no doubt be imminent. So we’ll get that straight to you guys as soon as possible.
