FRANK IERO - teasert neue EP mit R.EM. Coversong



Vier neue Songs will FRANK IERO zusammen mit seiner Band THE FUTURE VIOLENTS im Januar in EP-Form veroeffentlichen. "Heaven is a Place, This is a Place" erscheint am 15. Januar via UNFD. Anbei stellt der ehemalige MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE-Gitarrist mit "Losing My Religion" ein melancholisches Akustik-Duett vor, welches im Original von R.E.M. stammt. Zur Zusammenarbeit mit Kayleigh Goldsworthy sagt Iero:

“From the first show I was completely impressed with her musicianship and by touring together I realized she was also a rad human being who I desperately wanted to write and play music with. In my mind she was already in my next band, I just had to write the music, name the band, find the other musicians, oh and of course ask her. But during that first tour together we got to talking about how she played the mandolin and how we shared a love for R.E.M., and more specifically ‘Losing my Religion’. So, on the last night of tour in San Francisco we found an empty room/hallway/stairwell type place and made an iPhone voice memo demo of the song. It felt like magic and that was the moment I was convinced this couldn’t be the only thing we did together”


Zur neuen EP und dessen Entstehung erklaert der Songwriter: 

“The title of the EP actually comes from the night before we started recording 'Barriers' at Electrical Audio in Chicago. The band went out to eat and get drinks at a local Tiki bar called, Lost Lake. On the menu that night there was a drink called Heaven is a place/This is the place. I love when the universe gives you gifts like that. You just have to be in tune to your surroundings. The name struck me as clever and I started to think about how changing one word in that title meant something way more profound to me. Heaven is a place, if you believe in that sort of thing…It is the reward at the end of a long hard journey of fighting the good fight and living your life to whatever standards you hold dear. But it’s just a place. And so is this…This is a place, the earthly realm, miraculous on so many levels but also just a place. The difference is you and your perception”
