Frank Iero And The Future Violets have released the music video for Great Party, which is from their album Barriers.
The record was released on the 31st of May via UNFD and is the second single to come out from the record, behind lead Young and Doomed.
Great Party features Cult Records band Surfboats and is released just as Frank Iero And The Future Violets have completed their whirlwind European festival run that saw the band headline major stages in the UK, Russia, Ukraine, and Czech Republic, and ahead of the West Coast leg of their headlining tour.
Sometimes it can be hard to decide where to fit a song into an album, said Frank, but with Great Party he knew straight away that it would be one of the singles.
“I knew immediately when we finished writing Great Party that it needed to be a single off the record and that we needed to make a video for that song.
Frank continued to say that the video was inspired by the world’s strangest gathering of people: “I saw this weird gathering that you couldn’t tell if it was an AA meeting or the world’s bleakest birthday,” he said.
“And I knew our friend Dani from Surfbort had to be the one to light the fuse that would turn everything on its head. I really love this video, it may have turned out even better than I first imagined it.”
Barriers is a critically-acclaimed rumination of sorts on life and living and the obstacles that get in the way. Recorded and mixed by Steve Albini (Nirvana, Pixies, PJ Harvey), the album is 14 songs that not only tackle the existential journey of his heart and mind, but help him redirect his musical path.
