New Jersey rock band Frank Iero and the Patience are adding to their discography. The quartet, which is fronted by former My Chemical Romance guitarist Frank Iero, will release their latest EP Keep The Coffins Coming on Sept. 22 by way of BMG/Vagrant Records.
The four-track EP follows 2016's Parachutes, the band's sophomore album. It was recorded with legendary musician and producer Steve Albini, who along with his work in Big Black and Shellac has produced albums by the Pixies, Jawbreaker, Nirvana and Flogging Molly, to name a few.
“When we were done touring (our first album) Stomachaches, I talked to my manager, Paul, about what we should do. I had my bucket list and one of the things on there was to work with Steve Albini,” Iero said. “Paul asked how long I’d wanted to work with Steve and I was like, ‘Since I was, like, 11!’ I wanted to make a Steve Albini record!"
Following a European run with Dave Hause and the Mermaid, the band will return to the U.S. for a stretch of Midwest and East Coast dates between November and December. The "I'm A Mess" creators will be supporting Descendents on the first leg of U.S. dates before teaming up with Thursday and PUP for a trio of shows after Christmas.
