Leathermouth

Leathermouth (often typeset as LeATHERMØUTH) is the hardcore side project led by My Chemical Romance's rhythm guitarist Frank Iero. The band formed in 2007, and in January 2009 released their first album XO.

Leathermouth was formed in 2005 by some friends of My Chemical Romance's rhythm guitarist Frank Iero.

Leathermouth (often typeset as LeATHERMØUTH) is the hardcore side project led by My Chemical Romance's rhythm guitarist Frank Iero. The band formed in 2007, and in January 2009 released their first album XO.

Leathermouth was formed in 2005 by some friends of My Chemical Romance's rhythm guitarist Frank Iero. Iero heard a few demo tracks from the band, and wanted to sign the band to his own independent label, Skeleton Crew. It was not until the previous lead singer had failed to write any lyrics that Iero became a member. As a member of Leathermouth, this is the first project where he contributes lyrics and lead vocals since Pencey Prep (who broke up before My Chemical Romance was formed). Iero uses the project as a way to vent about the way he sees the world and also to let out his personal struggles with depression and anxiety. Leathermouth played their first shows in the summer of 2008 alongside Warship for the Fall 2008 Reggie and the Full Effect "Farewell Tour". Iero hopes to tour with Leathermouth when he is not working with My Chemical Romance.

In October 2008, Leathermouth signed to Epitaph Records as opposed to Frank Iero's label as originally planned. Iero thought that it would be difficult to promote the album himself, if released through his own label, with his current obligations to My Chemical Romance and the other bands signed to his label. Epitaph Records president, Brett Gurewitz, was impressed with the band's "intensity and songwriting of the music." Leathermouth released their first studio album on January 27, 2009 through Epitaph entitled XO. Although the album did not chart on the Billboard 200, it did reach #21 on the Top Heatseekers chart. The band is currently on hiatus. « hide
