ORIGINAL STORY: JAN. 21, 2019, 3:11 P.M. EST
As is the case with any new project, we’re patiently awaiting new tunes and more information such as a tour or album deets, and we might not have to do that much longer if Iero’s tweet is any indication.
The frontman has been actively answering questions about his new project on Twitter as well as announcing a couple new shows. Today, however, he teased a simple, “10 a.m. EST tomorrow” with a heart.
10am EST tomorrow 🖤

Twitter immediately started speculating, with many thinking it would be tour dates given his response to a fan’s since deleted tweet:

Others are hoping for new tunes.
I want to assume that it’s a song release but there is a part of me that thinks that you’re just announcing new merch

And a Twitter poll has even launched to try to decipher the vague tweet.
what are we betting on for the frank iero news tomorrow? i think he’s going by his local time and the 10 est doesn’t necessarily mean shit

While others aren’t sure what’s going on, but they’re excited regardless.

While this could mean a number of things, we’ll just have to wait for tomorrow morning to find out.
Frank Iero And The Future Violents
Iero first began teasing news of his new project in May 2018, where he posted some cryptic images. With it, he announced he had “begun work on the next chapter” and that he was working with surprise musicians he had wanted to work with for more than a decade.
“der frends, my apologies for being out of contact this past week, but so much has happened! ive been busy and i feel i must fill you in a little…. i’m happy to inform you that work has begun on the next chapter! i have been privileged and honored to get to play with some musicians i have wanted to start a band with for over 10 years, and it was beyond any expectation i could possibly have had (but i’m not going to fully ruin that surprise just yet). i will say demos are afoot, and i can’t stop grinning like a fuhking maniacal idiot.”
Soon after in August 2018, Iero shared a photoshopped image of his new band where their faces are obscured by Larry David. He added the caption “first band photo. (no filter) #FIATFV” setting off wild theories of what that hashtag could mean.
Then, on the final day of 2018, Iero shared a video of himself writing out exactly what #FIATFV means: Frank Iero And The Future Violents.
From a tour, new music or who is in the band with him, there’s so many options of what could happen tomorrow morning.
