They’re barking like dogs while we’re howling like wolves …
Back in November, Frank Iero announced that he and The Future Violents (aka The Future Violence) were back at it again with a new EP — Heaven Is A Place, This Is A Place.
The four-track EP, which is set to release in January, was recorded at the same time as the band’s 2019 full-length record Barriers. One track from the EP, a cover of R.E.M.’s “Losing My Religion,” became available for streaming on the same day as the announcement. Now, with just over a month to go until the official release date, Frank Iero and The Future Violence have released another song from Heaven Is A Place: “Sewerwolf.”
“Sewerwolf” is undoubtedly one of the best songs to come out of Iero’s solo music career, period. There’s a raw, palpable energy in the push and pull of the tempo as Iero’s vocals build up to a crescendo of intensity before settling back down like a yawning ocean tide. This is the kind of track that you put on repeat.
In an interview with Consequence of Sound, Iero credits his son Miles for the title, and cites Glenn Danzig, Phil Anselmo, and Shudder to Think as inspirations for the track.
Heaven Is A Place, This Is A Place is being released by UNFD, and pre-orders for the 10″ vinyl record are now sold out. The latest Violence merchandise additions to the UNFD webstore are still available.
Heaven Is A Place, This Is A Place will be available on January 15, 2021. Pre-save the album on Spotify or Apple Music, and add “Sewerwolf” to your daily playlist now!
