Iero updated his blog tonight with the following post:
as promised the following are the details for my first release:
i recently recorded 2 songs for my wife's birthday. i have decided to release these songs and dedicate my first ep to her. she is the love of my life, and has been my best friend and the most incredible partner i could have ever asked for. she inspires me and deserves more than i could possibly give her.
a few years ago, on december 10, my wife and i found out we were going to be parents for the first time. a blessing we had long hoped for. that date will forever be imbedded in my psyche as the day my life changed forever...for the better. seems to me like the perfect day to begin our latest chapter...
friends and foes, i welcome you to B.CALM PRESS.
