Frank Iero and the Patience are set to release their second album 'Parachutes' on 28th October via Hassle Records. The record was produced by the legendary team that is Ross Robinson & Steve Evetts in California earlier this year. "It's a team that had been on my mind for a while. I heard stories about Ross that scared me to death... but honestly nothing could have prepared me for the reality of what it is like to work with him" says singer Frank Iero. "It was the most heartbreaking yet uplifting, depleting yet inspiring experience I have ever had. I found out things about myself and the songs I was writing that changed me forever. I am so proud of this record, it really took everything I had, and I know I could not have made it with anyone else."
As with any new album, the band has a chance to grow and evolve into something else, to challenge all perceptions and become a new version of what it once was, and as such comes a name change- Frank Iero and the Patience. "When I first started this journey I brought a band along that filled in the gaps of what I lacked. I was uncomfortable in my position so I brought a celebration or a celebration to distract from my awkwardness. Now in my life I need to learn how to slow down and love where I am. I need the patience to appreciate the now." says Frank Iero.
The album 'Parachutes' is 12 songs of controlled chaos which shows Frank Iero and the Patience at their absolute best.

A message from Frank Iero
"Parachutes are life saving devices. We rely on them to bring us back from the brink of death. Whether we fall or jump they are the only things keeping us alive. Such as with life, we are all just falling or plunging to an eventual end, but the love of my family and my ability to create art and music has always been my parachute.
The act of living can be random and strange, beautiful and ugly at the same time and the only thing that is undeniably certain is eventually we are all gonna hit the ground. Some of us plummet at an incredible rate and it’s over in a flash, but some of us get saved and are able to enjoy the view for a little while…. This album is one of my parachutes. xo frnk."
Frank Iero and Evan Nestor will play a very special acoustic show at All Saints Church in Kingston, later this week on Saturday 10th September which will be followed by a fan Q&A hosted by Matt Stocks.
UK & EU special shows:
Sept 9th - Paris - Bear and Racoons, w/ Sonic Vinyl (Acoustic session / Signing / M&G)

Goth Rockers Davey Suicide release music video for new single "Rise Above," taken from upcoming 'Made From Fire' LP
Rock band Davey Suicide has released the Official Music Video for the debut single "Rise Above" off of their highly anticipated 3rd LP, entitled Made From Fire. Premiered on Alternative Press, "Rise Above" was directed, filmed, and edited by Justin Mark Morrison with the song co-production credits going to Charles Kallaghan and Needlz.
"This song is a huge thank you to our fans who stood behind us with one unified voice over the last few years (especially over the last few weeks). This song, "Rise Above" captures the raw emotion of everything that we've been living through, and it's the first step toward our new future." - Davey Suicide
Davey Suicide is cultivating the underground by fusing arena rock, gutter grit, sleaze and theatrics into their own brand of industrial rock. The band, which features Davey Suicide along with Drayven Davidson, Needlz, Niko Gemini, and Derek Obscura, distills heavy metal, industrial and punk into anthems that are as corrosive as they are catchy.
Made From Fire is expected to be released sometime next year. Until then, "Rise Above" serves as a first taste of Davey Suicide's future and a thank-you to those who have supported them
After topping the rock charts in 2014 and 2015, The Pretty Reckless returns with their extraordinary third studio album Who You Selling For, due October 21st on Virgin EMI. The new album is the band’s anticipated third studio album and the follow up to Going To Hell, which spawned the biggest rock song of 2014 in “Heaven Knows” and a total of three #1 Mainstream and Active Rock hits. The first single from the new album, “Take Me Down,” premiered worldwide July 15th on iHeart Radio and impacted at rock radio four shortly after. Listen to the new single HERE.
Produced by long-time collaborator Kato Khandwala, Who You Selling For is an arresting collection of rock tunes that expand the band’s sound to encompass soulful, bluesy undertones, written by front woman Taylor Momsen and guitarist Ben Phillips. This raucous 12-track collection puts Momsen’s dark lyrics and raw, charismatic vocals on full display while the band delivers at full intensity with a level of musicianship that raises the bar.
Formed in 2009, The Pretty Reckless released their debut album Light Me Up in 2010 scoring legions of fans worldwide, but it was their sophomore record Going to Hell that positioned the band to become the first new artist to breakout of rock in years, debuting in the Top 5 on Billboard’s Top 200. Achieving three #1 Rock hits - “Heaven Knows,” “Fucked Up World” and “Follow Me Down”- was a feat that has not been accomplished by a female fronted group since The Pretenders in 1984, nearly a quarter of a century ago.
Despite feeling the physical and emotional demands from their epic two-year run supporting Going to Hell, Momsen and Phillips jumped right into writing the songs for the new album. “We had so much we wanted to say, it was like shaking a can of soda on tour, and then when we started writing we cracked the seal,” says Momsen. “The touring life is very isolating. You look at the world through a bus or airplane window. But music is the healing factor. It’s the one thing that is grounding and a true companion through the forest. It saved us – again.”
With Who You Selling For the band continues to take bold steps forward, cementing their place at the forefront of rock. The deeply personal album features a diverse set of standout tracks, from the blistering hard rock of “Oh My God” to the classic southern rock of “Back to the River”. Lead single “Take Me Down” features Taylor’s distinctively smoky voice rolling over ‘60s – tinged rock guitar. Loudwire says, “‘Take Me Down’ features a bit of rasp and a soulful delivery from Momsen, while guitarist Ben Phillips gets a solid mid-song riffing showcase that raises the track to a new level. Add in some backing organ playing and you’ve got a blistering new song from the band.”
