Frank Iero and the Patience is now just weeks away from releasing their new EP, Keep The Coffins Coming, on September 22nd.
The forthcoming content from the band will mark the third installment under the moniker. Since unveiling Parachutes last summer, Frank Iero and the Patience has been touring nonstop and living on the road. In fact, the album art on the upcoming EP pokes fun at the band’s tour experiences.
For this release, the band will jokingly refer to themselves as Frank Iero & ‘The Patients’ in light of their accident in Sydney, Australia last year.
The frontman touched on touched on the EP:
“When we were done touring 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,” frontman Frank 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! Paul said he’d call him and I was like, ‘You can’t do that… that would be weird. Don’t do it.’ And he was like, ‘That’s my job!’ ”
Iero continues, “He called him, Steve said he could do it and he had three days. Next phone call I made was U-Haul; I fuckin’ packed the U-Haul up and drove the band to Chicago. I got to record an EP with my friends and one of my heroes in this, like, giant firehouse building in Chicago. The EP is this missing link between Stomachaches and Parachutes. It’s everything I wanted it to be. It’s fuckin’ awesome!”
