Frank Iero is an American musician who is the rhythm guitarist and backup vocalist of the rock band My Chemical Romance and post-hardcore band Leathermouth. He has a solo project titled Frank Iero and the Future Violents. And this project has a brand new EP out. “Heaven is a Place, This is a Place” is a four-track EP that will definitely catch your attention.
The first two songs almost sound erratic and insane. Somehow they reflect the crazy times we live in, which strangely make them sound more normal than they might otherwise. Frank Iero is mainly shouting or speaking the vocals on these two songs. “Violence” and “Sewer Wolf” sound straight out of the Arkham Asylum. And once the second one is over, the insanity suddenly stops and ceases. As if it never existed, with only tiny remains of fog dissolving in the air, the EP continues with the REM cover “Losing My Religion”. Perfectly normal and beautiful. Clean vocals and sorted arrangements. “Record Ender” is just as calm – or even calmer – and sorted. A slightly melancholic song, that will make you sad that the EP is over already. But, not to worry. Just hit that play button again!
These four songs could not be any stranger and yet they fit perfectly well. To the current times we live in, to Frank Iero and the Future Violents and onto your playlist. So press pause on your daily life and press play on “Heaven is a Place, This is a Place”. The brand new EP by Frank Iero and the Future Violents. Out now!
