FRANK IERO AND THE FUTURE VIOLENTS
Former My Chemical Romance guitarist Frank Iero has a new band, The Future Violents, and they'll release their debut album Barriers on May 31 via UNFD. The album was recorded and mixed by Steve Albini, and the first single is "Young and Doomed," which sounds a bit like the mid-2000s alt-rock-leaning emo of Taking Back Sunday (who Frank is opening for on tour this spring). The song comes with a video directed by Steve Pedulla of Thursday. Frank also plays Warped Tour 25 in Atlantic City, day one of Long Island's Great South Bay Music Fest (with Taking Back Sunday, Glassjaw, and The Menzingers), and he has several headlining shows including a Rocks Off Cruise in NYC on June 22. All dates here.
FUJIYA & MIYAGI
Funky, krautrock-loving UK group Fujiya & Miyagi will release new album Flashback on May 31. You can check out the title track, which makes nice use of some dubsteppy bass, below. The group will be heading to the States for a few shows this summer, playing DC, Brooklyn (Elsewhere Hall on 7/19), Boston and Philly. All dates are here.
Alt-country-ish indie rockers Gun Outfit are touring with Steve Gunn in April/May, and they added a headlining Brooklyn show happening at Union Pool on May 5 right afterwards. All dates and a stream of their latest album (2017's Out of Range) at Bandcamp.

BUDOS BAND / MENAHAN STREET BAND / HOLY HIVE
Budos Band have shared another song off their upcoming album V (due 4/12 via Daptone).
