Having known the label for some time Frank Iero says he’s excited to finally have the opportunity to work alongside those who understand the nature of the project which and states “ the greatest thing you could ever ask for”.

Barriers which was recorded and mixed by Steve Albini; has been described as not only an existential journey but also said to be a triumph for Frank Ireo in overcoming some of the barriers and obstacles which have occurred during his career. On creating Barriers Ireo explains about some of the ‘walls’ we put around ourselves whether they are for protection, keeping people out or even out of fear and states:

“…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.”

With the success of Frank Iero’s previous albums frnkiero and the cellabration‘s (2014’s Stomachaches) and Frank Iero and the Patience‘s (2016’s Parachutes) Iero’s music career, and talents, are nothing short of incredible; best known as guitarist for My Chemical Romance and front man of Leatherface to industrial duo Death Spells you would be forgiven for having particularly high expectations.

The first single release ‘Young and Doomed’ from Barriers premieres Thursday, 21st March on BBC’s Radio 1’s Future Sounds with Annie Mac.
