Frank Iero and The Future Violents destroys dark barriers in newest single “Young and Doomed”



Along with the wild, punk-inspired rock track “Young and Doomed” released by Frank Iero and The Future Violents today, the band also announced a summer headliner.

I have to admit, when I even see the name “Frank Iero”, I kind of lose my mind. This is what life as a music blogger in 2019 as a post-emo kid is like. With Gerard Way’s solo project and The Umbrella Academy now on Netflix, I am always ready for the next mind-blowing project to come out of this group of insanely talented guys. Thankfully, I didn’t have to wait long. Frank Iero’s punk-rock influence mixes with energy that wraps its arms around me and drags me in in “Young and Doomed” and shots of the band as youths, off upcoming record Barriers (out May 31, 2019), via UNFD.


“I never expected to do one solo record in my lifetime,” he chuckles, “let alone three. Every time I start a new record, I say to myself ‘This is it. This is the end. This is the last one.’ 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.” – Frank Iero

Barriers is a record that I still can’t believe I made and I’m so incredibly proud of it,” Iero reflects. “I can’t wait for other people to be shocked and appalled and inspired by it. Hopefully it scares the shit out of them.” The new record is up for pre-order now!
