PA­TIENCE IS A VIRTUE

Farewell, FRANK IERO AND THE PA­TIENCE. Hello, FRANK IERO AND… well, no-one knows just yet. But soon we will…

1 WORK ON FRANK’S ‘NEXT CHAP­TER’ HAS BE­GUN

A sneaky In­sta­gram video from Frank has con­firmed that his all-new era is in its early stages. “I’m happy to in­form you that work has be­gun on the next chap­ter!” he teased. Which tech­ni­cally means that Frank Iero And The Pa­tience – who re­leased 2016’s Parachutes, and 2017’s Keep The Coffins Com­ing – are no more.

2 BUT WE HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THE NAME WILL BE

The first it­er­a­tion of his post-mcr work came un­der the ‘frnkiero andthe cellabra­tion’ name, while sub­se­quent mu­sic was then at­tached to ‘Pa­tience’. Ever one to keep us on our toes – now more than ever as a solo artist – what’s this gram­mar-hat­ing front­man go­ing to go for this time?

3 IT’LL BE IN­SPIRED BY THE MU­SI­CIAN JUST LIV­ING HIS LIFE

In early 2018, Frank told The Aquar­ian that his plan for the year was to: “Stop and take some time to live. To write and record. To make some new things. I like hav­ing a pretty open cal­en­dar, I’ve never re­ally had that be­fore. I’m in­ter­ested to see where this takes me.” So are we, Frank. So. Are. We.

4 AND IT’S GO­ING TO FEA­TURE SOME VERY SPECIAL GUESTS

From Slip­knot to Against Me!, Frank has fine taste in mu­sic. So the ex­cit­ing news that he’s work­ing with peo­ple who he’s wanted to start a band with for 10 years bodes ex­tremely well. “It was be­yond any ex­pec­ta­tion I could pos­si­bly have had,” he said. We’re an­tic­i­pat­ing very good com­pany in­deed…

5 FRANK IS STOKED WITH THE WAY THINGS ARE GO­ING

“I can’t stop grin­ning like a fuhk­ing [sic] ma­ni­a­cal id­iot,” he said. Hav­ing spent his year so far in Dis­ney­land and with a new pet dog, that could partly be the rea­son he’s so happy. But we’re con­fi­dent those new demos are hav­ing that effect, too.

6 …AND HIS RE­TURN WILL BE ONE OF 2018’S HIGH­LIGHTS!

It’s been six months since his last gig – and we’ll be wait­ing longer still for tour dates. It’s safe to say, then, that Frank’s live come­back is go­ing to be un­miss­able. Any­one got some of that ‘pa­tience’ stuff knock­ing about for us to bor­row?
