My Chemical Romance’s Frank Iero + Ray Toro Reunite for First Time on ‘One on One’ Session
Iero is out promoting his band Frank Iero and the Future Violents and he recently took part in a One on One at City Winery session in New York and asked his old bandmate Ray Toro to mix the audio for the session. This marks the first time the two musicians have worked together since My Chemical Romance's split in 2013.
"I really enjoyed doing this session at the winery and when they asked if we had anyone in mind to mix the tracks I immediately thought of asking Ray Toro," Frank said about working with Toro once again. "He’s just so multi-talented and has such a great ear. He’s been recording and mixing some rad projects these past few years, and it was an honor to have him work on this session for us."
Though Toro doesn't take part in the performance, his presence is felt in what is ultimately heard by the viewer. The session in full can be viewed below.
As stated, Iero does have new music to promote, with the newly released Barriers album arriving late last month. The album debuted at No. 5 on their New Artist/Heatseekers chart, No. 8 on the Hard Rock chart, No. 18 on the Independent Labels chart, and at No. 56 on the Top Current 200 chart.
While the "One on One" session finds Iero in a more intimate setting, look for a more rocked up version of the music when the singer-guitarist and his band play their regular shows. They're currently on the road, with a mix of their own shows and special festival dates worked in. See all their stops below and get ticketing information here.
