Frnkiero And The Cellabration // Stomachaches

Frnkiero And The Cellabration StomachachesFollowing the break up of My Chemical Romance, Frank Iero makes a fighting comeback with his highly anticipated debut solo album Stomachaches, recorded in his own home studio named b.calm together with Hassle Records. Remaining undeterred about the MCR split, Lero keeps busy with Death Spells – an electronic hardcore act, post-hardcore band Leathermøuth and the more recent FrnkIero AndThe Cellabration, a moody pop punk revival.

Opening with All I Want Is Nothing, an adrenaline pumped treasure that echoes bands like Blink 182. Following by the gritty single Weighted, which many fans would have already watched the gruesome video for. Thrashy Stitches is distinguished by its glorious steady drumming played by ex My Chemical Romance drummer Jarrod Alexander. Where Frank screams the words ‘I want what I want. I need what I need… I am the seventh son. I have my father’s eyes. I am a loaded gun.  I am the setting sun’.

Frank Iero crafts an album which claims an unapologetic, blunt and angst derived sound with clean rock choruses. The demo for Joyriding was released on Youtube a year ago and feels a lot more bouncy and upbeat. Resonating Nirvana is Guittripping, a bass crammed anthem, hugely different to the rehearsed sound of MCR, overly chaotic Leathermøuth and Death Spells. Lastly, Where Do We Belong, which continues to endure desperate groans and infectious choruses. All in all, Stomachaches is abrasive, self-loathing, uncompromising and feels like the start of something special.
