Frank Iero and the Patience have announced a new EP entitled Keep The Coffins Coming, due out September 22nd via Hassle Records. The EP was recorded at Ecletical audio in Chicago by Steve Albini. Pre-orders are available here.
Talking on the new record and working with Steve Albini, Frank Iero says
“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, eleven!’ 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!”
As well as announcing the new EP the band have also announced a UK/Euro tour starting this September with Dave Hause supporting in the UK and then headlining in Europe. Further support comes from The Hopeless Gospel Choir and Paceshifters on all shows.
