Frank Iero speaks about Australian bus accident

Frank Iero

After a severe traffic accident left him hospitalized in late 2016, Frank Iero is finally on the mend and back in action, and will be performing songs off of his recently released album, Parachutes, to a sold-out crowd at Monty Hall in New Jersey on February 4th.

 In an exclusive interview with, Iero opened up about his recent trauma, and how its affected his take on his approach to life. “I have a hard time allowing myself to believe there is a higher power doing things behind the scenes, but I tend to think things do happen — even the shitty things — for some reason,” he says. “In time, I will feel more grounded. For now, I’m existing. That’s something, in that moment, that I didn’t know I would be doing.”

 Iero also spoke in-depth about the album, explaining, “The record is called Parachutes because I started thinking about life, how we’re put here without asking to be,” he says. “It’s like being pushed out of a plane…Some of us are lucky enough to find people and things that bring us joy along the way that act as a parachute, slowing that ride down, and you’re able to enjoy the fall.”

 After Frank Iero & The Patience’s performance next month, they’ll be off to play throughout Europe and Russia for the rest of February and March; full tour dates are below. Parachutes was released on October 28th via BMG and can be purchased here.
