Frank Iero And The Future Violents Premiere New Song “Sewerwolf”

Frank Iero And The Future Violents have premiered a new song titled “Sewerwolf.” This track is from their new EP “Heaven Is A Place, This Is A Place,” which will be released on January 15.

Iero told Consequence Of Sound the following:

“Originally the song was untitled, it was fun to play and I liked it but I couldn’t find a good name for it. So I asked Miles what he would name it. At that time he had come up with a superhero character he named ‘Super Wolf” so he said you should name it that. A few days later he came into my basement studio and I had songs scribbled out all over this giant whiteboard and he asked, “Hey dad, what’s a Sewerwolf?” The name was so filthy and enigmatic that I knew it was fate naming the song.

Vocally, my direction for this song was “What would Glen and Phil do?” I was definitely doing my best to channel them especially in those choruses.

The bridge to “Sewerwolf” always felt very Shudder To Think to me. Rhythmically hypnotic and spidery. I remember Geoff Rickly was the first person to play me Shudder To Think, he had a copy of Pony Express Record in his car and we listened to it all the way up to upstate NY while recording the first Mychem record. Something about “Hit Liquor” really stuck with me, whenever I hear it I think about that drive.”

Watch GWAR Kill Frank Iero And The Future Violents In New Video

Frank Iero (My Chemical Romance) has premiered a new video for “Medicine Square Garden” from his Frank Iero And The Future Violents project. The clip, which features members of GWAR, can be seen below. The track appears on the band’s latest album “Barriers.”

Iero commented:

“It was apparent to me early on while writing Barriers that ‘Medicine Square Garden‘ was its most important track. It was the cornerstone upon which the rest of the record and band was formed. If we lost the battle on that song, the rest didn’t stand a chance.

‘Medicine Square Garden‘ pushed the most boundaries, scratched the most itches, and terrified me far beyond any other song I had written. So when we crossed off every box in Chicago at Electrical Audio and listened back with smiles knowing we had accomplished our goals, a new objective soon emerged: Get the label to see our favorite song as a single, and let us make the video of my dreams.”

“‘Medicine Square Garden‘ is not your typical single. It’s a five and a half minute attempt at answering the question, ‘What if Prince wrote a Sleep song?’ Oh and if that’s not batshit enough for you, I already had the video in my head.

So armed with crudely drawn set designs and a typed-up description of a witchy calisthenics workout meets a Robert Palmer alien massacre, I submitted my pitch to the label. This was my vision from the beginning and no one told me I was crazy. What a world.”

Frank Iero And The Future Violents Premiere “Basement Eyes” Video

Frank Iero (My Chemical Romance) has premiered a new video for “Basement Eyes” from his Frank Iero And The Future Violents project. The track appears on the band’s latest album “Barriers.”

Iero commented:

“dear phrendz

we are proud to present you with our latest music video. It is for the song basement eyes and was directed by the talented David Brodsky and Allison Woest for My Goodeye Visuals. This song is very much about beginnings and ends. Many incredible feats have begun in a basement or a garage, and I personally have started almost every musical or creative project of my career in a basement somewhere. I have learned to play instruments, started bands, painted, filmed videos, played shows, written and even recorded records there. It is my preferred creative space and the nucleus of where inspiration and ideas get formed into living breathing pieces of art.

The song Basement Eyes was written there, and is about the feeling you get when starting something new and the fire that burns inside the creative mind. that fire pushes us forward, it urges us to continue making things, not for the hope of fame or glory, or the pursuit of monetary reward… but because it is a necessity for survival. the saddest thing about getting older is watching that fire go out or dull in other peoples eyes.

Living a creative life we tend to gravitate toward other like minded people. real recognizes real. sometimes you start bands together or collaborate in some way, sometimes just being around one another is enough, and even though these partnerships may be fleeting, you tend to continue in a strange orbit occasionally meeting again somewhere along the way. Time passes, and life happens, and i have seen people i hung out in basements with neglect their fires. like a body needs vitamins and nutrients, our souls need to create… and when that fire is extinguished, the hunger dies.

Basement Eyes is a song about that experience, now with a video that we filmed in my basement. enjoi.”

Frank Iero And The Future Violents Premiere “Great Party” Video

Frank Iero (My Chemical Romance) has premiered a new video for “Great Party” from his Frank Iero And The Future Violents project. The track is from the band’s latest album “Barriers.”

Iero commented:

“Sometimes when you write songs for an album you have a hard time placing where they should go in the tracklisting, or what would be a good visual representation for them. Other times it’s like the universe opens up its playbook and tells you exactly how every piece fits into this giant puzzle.

I knew immediately when we finished writing ‘Great Party’ that it needed to be a single off the record and that we needed to make a video for that song. When I wrote the treatment for it I could see the whole thing playing out in my head, and I knew that our friends needed to be cast in it! I saw this weird gathering that you couldn’t tell if it was an AA meeting or the worlds bleakest birthday, and I knew our friend Dani from Surfbort had to be the one to light the fuse that would turn everything on it’s head. I really love this video, it may have turned out even better than I first imagined it.”
