Listen To Frank Iero And The Future Violents’ New Single, Young And Doomed

The first single from Frank’s new solo album, Barriers, has arrived!

Following the announcement of his new album Barriers on Tuesday, Frank Iero has now unveiled the record’s lead single, Young And Doomed.

The track was premiered on BBC Radio 1 with Annie Mac last night, and is the first new song from the latest iteration of Frank’s solo era – this time under the name Frank Iero And The Future Violents. The band are completed by longtime collaborator Evan Nestor, Matt Armstrong (ex-Murder by Death), Tucker Rule (Thursday) and Kayleigh Goldsworthy (Golds, Dave Hause, The Mermaid).

Barriers is due out on May 31 via UNFD, and Frank explains of its creation: “I never expected to do one solo record in my lifetime, 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.”

“This is who I am,” he continues “I create in order to survive. And every chance I get I’m going to evolve and change. The ambition is to be for these songs to be perceived without any kind of past notion of what the project is supposed to sound like, to break down any and all boundaries and barriers that we’ve set up or that other people have set up for us. We really did go in and create something brand new for ourselves and that’s been such a challenge and fun undertaking.”
