Balance and Composure Share New Video for "Afterparty"

Balance and Composure have partnered with Clash Magazine to release the highly-anticipated video for “Afterparty,” the second single from their forthcoming new album Light We Made. “Afterparty” is the sister video to “Postcard,” which premiered previously on Pitchfork. The two videos take Balance and Composure fans through a hallucinogenic safari – the first video is the band within a mind-altering, psychedelic realm, and the second video picks up where the band starts to wake up from their trip.

Both “Postcard” and “Afterparty” appear on Light We Made which is set for release this Friday, October 7th. Balance and Composure will celebrate the release of Light We Made with a pair of intimate CD release shows. Boot and Saddle will host the Philadelphia gathering on Friday, October 7th while Rough Trade NYC will congregate on Saturday, October 8th. The former sold it in less than a few hours and fans who purchase the new album at Rough Trade in Brooklyn will be treated to a full set on Saturday afternoon at 2 PM.

Additionally, as a thank you to fans who purchase an LP or CD of Light We Made, Balance and Composure have supplied a handful of independent record stores across the United States with a free, limited-edition “Postcard” 7” featuring an exclusive, non-album b-side track called “Revelation” (while supplies last).

Frank Iero and the Patience's New Album Parachutes Arrives October 28th

FRANK IERO and the PATIENCE are set to release their second album 'Parachutes' on October 28th! The record was produced by the legendary team that is Ross Robinson & Steve Evetts in California earlier this year. "It's a team that had been on my mind for a while. I heard stories about Ross that scared me to death... but honestly nothing could have prepared me for the reality of what it is like to work with him" says singer Frank Iero. "It was the most heartbreaking yet uplifting, depleting yet inspiring experience I have ever had. I found out things about myself and the songs I was writing that changed me forever. I am so proud of this record, it really took everything I had, and I know I could not have made it with anyone else." The album is available for preorder HERE.

As with any new album, the band has a chance to grow and evolve into something else, to challenge all perceptions and become a new version of what it once was, and as such comes a name change - FRANK IERO and the PATIENCE. "When I first started this journey I brought a band along that filled in the gaps of what I lacked. I was uncomfortable in my position so I brought a celebration or a cellabration to distract from my awkwardness. Now in my life I need to learn how to slow down and love where I am. I need the patience to appreciate the now." says Frank Iero.

FRANK IERO and the PATIENCE are excited to take this record to the US fans via an extensive tour, kicking off on October 28th in Sayreville, New Jersey. The US tour runs through November 27th and includes a November 9th stop in Los Angeles at the Troubadour. The full dates are included HERE.

A message from Frank Iero

"Parachutes are life saving devices. We rely on them to bring us back from the brink of death. Whether we fall or jump they are the only things keeping us alive. Such as with life, we are all just falling or plunging to an eventual end, but the love of my family and my ability to create art and music has always been my parachute.

The act of living can be random and strange, beautiful and ugly at the same time and the only thing that is undeniably certain is eventually we are all gonna hit the ground. Some of us plummet at an incredible rate and it’s over in a flash, but some of us get saved and are able to enjoy the view for a little while….

This album is one of my parachutes. xo frnk."

Frank Iero and Evan Nestor will play a very special acoustic show at All Saints Church in Kingston, UK later this week on Saturday 10th September which will be followed by a fan Q&A hosted by Matt Stocks.
