Interview: Frank Iero talks solo project FrnkIero AndThe Cellabration

Posted by DebNYC on Thursday, October 16, 2014 at 4:56 PM (PST)

Frank Iero, the man of many projects which share little in common but his name has treated the punk world to near-perfectly tracked album in his debut release “Stomachaches” under the solo project moniker FrnkIero AndThe Cellabration. Emotions run high in these lyrics, which is no surprise, considering that their composer was in crippling pain for the majority of the recording process.

Said to be kept in their rawest form possible, Iero took the album out for a test drive this past autumn on a month-long tour with The Used and Taking Back Sunday, and has been finding them very well received.

Frankie was cool enough to spare DS some time prior to his wrap-up headlining show at Metro Gallery in Baltimore to discuss fathers, zombies, trolls and oh yeah, a little bit about music as well. His interview is below (and can also be viewed on video here.)

The one-year anniversary of the release of Dave Hause‘s stellar second solo album (ranked by at least two of us as the best album of 2013), “Devour,” brings with it a bunch of Hause-related activity. First and foremost, after a few months off the road spent writing new music (more on that in a minute), Hause is gearing up for his opening slot on Hot Water Music’s 20th anniversary tour by performing a series of three Stage-It concerts: one for the Europeans, one for the East Coasters and one for the West Coasters. They’ll all take place on October 15th at 8pm in each respective location: click here for more details.

Back to that “new music” stuff. Hause reports via his newsletter that he’s not only busy working on new solo material, but that he’s also got some music that’s “going to be better suited for a punky-pop side project which seems to be coming together,” while some “of them will be better suited for an electronic project I’ve been working on with an old friend from home.” Stay tuned for more where that’s concerned. In the meantime, head below for video of Hause playing a new, as-yet-unnamed song from Amsterdam a couple months ago. Not one of the electronic tracks, for sure.

“Devour” was released October 8th, 2013, through Rise Records.

Another “it came from left field” story for your Hump Day late-afternoon: the one-and-only Chuck Ragan is getting into the video game score composing game!

Ragan was approached by video game collective The Molasses Flood (featuring members of the teams responsible for BioShock, Halo 2 and 3, Guitar Hero, Rock Band and more) about coming up with a score for their upcoming game, “The Flame In The Flood.” The crowd-funded game “projects the gamer into a completely unique, procedurally-generated river, through environments inspired by the Everglades, The Mississippi Delta, Louisiana Bayou, and other quintessentially American places as you scrounge for resources, craft tools, remedy afflictions, evade the vicious wildlife, and most importantly, stay ahead of the coming rains.” If ever there was a game that was right up Ragan’s alley, it seems “The Flame In The Flood” is it.

We’ll keep you posted on details as they become available. In the meantime, you can check out more information on the project here, and see where you can catch Ragan on tour in support of his stellar latest full length (and album-of-the-year candidate) Till Midnight (SideOneDummy Records) right here. He’s also got the twentieth anniversary Hot Water Music tour coming down the ‘pike too; here are details.

Chris Rest (Lagwagon) talks about traveling and playing with Tony Sly

Posted by vdubowner on Thursday, September 25, 2014 at 6:00 PM (PST)

Since the tribute album to Tony Sly has been released, many personalities from bands who contributed to the Fat Wreck Chords comp have stopped by to explained how Tony influenced them or to talk about the song they covered on the album.

Most recently, Lagwagon guitarist and former No Use For A Name member Chris Rest has wrote a piece on how it was to play and tour with Tony Sly.

Here’s what he had to say:

“As a musician, once in a while you see a band and think, “Wow, I wish I was in this band.” No Use was one of those bands for me. It was always obvious to me that their songs and talent was beyond the level of an average punk band. But it was their personalities and overall dynamic that really made them so cool. Tony is one of the funniest and smartest people I’ve ever known. His talent was always obvious. One day, out of the blue, I received a call from Tony asking if I wanted to audition for No Use. Lagwagon was not doing much of anything at the time and I was working as a care giver for an elderly woman. I was initially surprised but flattered and I accepted. Our first tour was to Indonesia, Malaysia, China and Japan. I quickly realized even more than before, the extent of Tony’s talent and the band’s potential. None of us had ever been to Indonesia, Malaysia or China and we played many smaller cities in Japan that bands don’t normally go to, which made it a new experience for all of us. I can’t really recall many tours that I had a better time on. I quickly became very close friends with Tony, Matt and Rory. When Rory left the band I recommended my good friend, Boz Rivera to take his place. Matt and Boz playing together was an awesome thing to behold. They fed off of each other’s musical abilities. With that, combined with Tony’s songwriting, I was quite sure that the the next album to come out of this band was going to be something very special. To be a part of it, I’m sure, was going to be something I would have really been proud of. I am proud and grateful to have been lucky enough to have experienced the times that I did, playing, touring and just hanging out with Tony and to have had his friendship. I will Never Forget Tony Sly.”

Chris Rest and Lagwagon covered Tony’s “Discomfort Inn” on the tribute album “The Songs Of Tony Sly: A Tribute,” released on October 29th through Fat Wreck Chords.
