Frank Iero and Lonely The Brave are teaming up for a split 7” for this year’s Reading & Leeds festivals, via Hassle Records.
The limited 500 run release will feature two tracks from frnkiero andthe cellabration on side A, and a further two from Lonely The Brave on side B. Artwork is provided by the BBC Radio 1 Rock Show host Daniel P Carter.
“Split 7’s have been around for an age and represent a cool way of bands co-operating and respecting each other’s music. So in the grandest tradition of this, we (Hassle) are doing one to celebrate that two of our biggest acts are playing at the festival this year. Namely ‘Lonely The Brave’ and ‘frnkiero andthe cellabration’.” says Hassle Records owner Wez.
“Life is really weird sometimes. When you’re growing up and first going to festivals, you have this image of how cool it would be to be up on those stages. This being the third year in a row playing the festival, the feeling has only grown more intense.” says Lonely The Brave. “There is a definite parallel to this with our upcoming split release with Frank. Here is a guy that we have all seen conquer the globe with his music over the last few years. That we are lucky enough to be able to share this split with him is a big deal for us & something we consider an honour. Cheers Frank.”
“I’m real excited to do this Hassle split release with Lonely the Brave.” says Frank Iero. “I think it’s a great opportunity to be able to work together, commemorate both bands playing Reading and Leeds this year, and at the same time be able to release a b-side to the fans. I’m also a huge fan of Dan Carter’s art so I’m really looking forward to holding a final copy in my hands.”
