Having released their latest full-length ‘Parachutes’ less than a year ago now, Frank Iero & The Patience already have some new music to deliver in the form of a 4-track EP. The record, titled ‘Keep The Coffins Coming’, is scheduled for release on September 22nd 2017 through Hassle Records.
The EP was recorded last year in Chicago with Steve Albini (Nirvana, The Cribs, Jimmy Page, Mogwai, Jawbreaker), with the artwork designed and created by Daniel P. Carter.
Speaking further about the EP, Iero says that it acts as a bridge between their two albums, ‘Stomachaches’ and ‘Parachutes’, explaining, “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. 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!’ 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!”
