Surprise! Frank Iero And The Future Violents have just announced a new EP, Heaven Is A Place, This Is A Place.

The band’s four-track effort is due out on January 15, 2021 via UNFD, with their cover of R.E.M’s classic Losing My Religion from the release available to stream now. 

The title of the EP actually comes from the night before we started recording [2019 album] Barriers at Electrical Audio in Chicago,” reveals Frank. The band went out to eat and get drinks at a local Tiki bar called, Lost Lake. On the menu that night there was a drink called Heaven is a place/This is the place. I love when the universe gives you gifts like that. You just have to be in tune to your surroundings.

The name struck me as clever and I started to think about how changing one word in that title meant something way more profound to me. Heaven is a place, if you believe in that sort of thing… It is the reward at the end of a long hard journey of fighting the good fight and living your life to whatever standards you hold dear. But it’s just a place. And so is this… This is a place, the earthly realm, miraculous on so many levels but also just a place. The difference is you and your perception.” 

Of the EP – which also features Evan Nestor (guitar/backing vocals), Matt Armstrong (bass), Tucker Rule (drums) and Kayleigh Goldsworthy (keys/mandolin/violin) – Frank reveals that it was tracked by Steve Albini at the same time as Barriers, and then finished/mixed by Steve Evetts late this year. 

The Future Violents was the perfect band at the perfect time for me,” says Frank. The creativity flowed through us like rapids and we didn’t stop writing because we ran out of inspiration… it was just time to go to the studio. In fact I was still writing at the studio, but I allowed myself the luxury of 14 songs on the record leaving three to survive in the shadows. Lying in wait. I knew I wanted them to see the light, it was just a matter of how and when.
