Frank Iero to bring his new band to Edinburgh on joint tour with Laura Jane Grace

Former My Chemical Romance guitarist Frank Iero and his band Future Violents will visit Edinburgh this summer.

The US outfit are set to head out on a joint UK tour with Laura Jane Grace and the Devouring Mothers, and, as well as a show at Liquid Room on August 27, further appearances will take place in Glasgow, Manchester, London, Bristol and Birmingham.

Iero and his band will then make their way to Amsterdam, beginning a run of European dates.

The former MCR member released his latest solo effort, Barriers, last month.

Iero says: “I am so excited to be touring with our friends Laura Jane Grace And The Devouring Mothers in the next few months.

“They are great people, fantastic musicians, and put out one of my favourite records of last year. I really think it’s going to be an incredible set of shows.”

Grace adds: “Over the moon to bring the songs of Bought To Rot to the UK and Europe and honoured to do so in such fantastic company, alongside friends Frank Iero And The Future Violents and Mobina Galore.

“Each night we’ll be playing our record in its entirety as well as a mix of surprises. Hope to see you there!”

Tickets go on sale this Friday (June 21).
