Initially around between 1994 and 1997, Mineral were an incredibly influential band despite the fact they weren't together very long at first. Although he didn't get into them until he was already in My Chemical Romance, Frank says their sound has heavily influenced the way he plays guitar. And he was incredibly excited when they reformed and he finally got to see them live.
"I didn't think I was ever going to get to see them," he said, "so to finally get to witness that and hear those songs was unreal. It felt like they were playing just for me! And I got to watch it with my brother-in-law, who's a little bit younger than me and wasn't as familiar with their stuff, so I was just like, 'Oh my God, you don't understand what this meant to me and what it means to me and how much it affected my playing. You have to listen to this song, and this song! And this part!' So to see it, not only for myself but through his eyes and to see how excited he got about it, that was really special."
