Frank Iero and the Patience - Parachutes

Iero’s world is as random, strange, beautiful and ugly as ever.

Label: Hassle Records
Released: October 28th 2016
Rating: ★★★★

“The act of living can be random and strange, beautiful and ugly at the same time” – Frank Iero’s album announcement was on point.

Never fenced in by genre, Frank sharpens the more traditionally ragged edges of his music on ‘Parachutes’, but keeps it within touching distance of ‘Stomachaches’. ‘Veins! Veins!! Veins!!!’ is jubilant anarchy and ‘I’ll Let You Down’ swaggering storytelling, where ‘Miss Me’ has country twangs and ‘Remedy’ is an apt dose of comparative calm amidst styles.

Iero’s world is as random, strange, beautiful and ugly as ever – but this is the moment he’s found his feet as the frontman. Heather McDaid
