Frank Iero & the Future Violents are doing something he’s never done before — meet and greets. But they are doing them their own way, and it sounds like a dream come true.

The band made the announcement via Instagram, where they talked about why they’ve never done meet and greets before.

I never want to be in a situation where someone has to ‘pay’ to meet me, but the idea of doing something special with a small group of you in addition to the show has always really appealed to me. But what?!” the post reads.

It then went on to say that next month when Frank Iero & the Future Violents are on tour with Taking Back Sunday, they’ll be taking 10 VIP ticket holders to their tour bus.

Those fans will not only get to hangout with the band, but they will be the first to hear new music before anyone else.

The band will also sign autographs, take photos and even eat a snack, which will apparently be ramen.

“We’ll also take a group picture on the bus each and every night and at the end of the tour, we will post all the pictures on my instagram so all your friends that didn’t come will be jealous of you and badger you endlessly about what the future sounds like,” the post reads.

“You are gonna get to hang on our bus! You are gonna be immortalized on the grammys (that’s what I call instagram)! You are gonna see how untidy we are! You are gonna get insider knowledge dropped into your ear holes! You get an exclusive t-shirt that brags about it so your mouth doesn’t have to! You get your stuff written on with markers! And you get to see how many different cereals I can fit in bus cabinets! plus more:… This is going to be fun!”

dearest Phrends, For years people have been asking me about doing special meet and greets or VIP packages at the shows and we have been hesitant for a few reasons. I never want to be in a situation where someone has to ‘pay’ to meet me, but the idea of doing something special with a small group of you in addition to the show has always really appealed to me. But what?! Well as luck would have it our tour next month with Taking Back Sunday is going to be the perfect opportunity to try something new and really special. Every night we will be opening up our humble abode (future violent tour bus) to 10 VIP ticket holders before the show and covertly reveal a BIG secret to them. We want you to be the first to hear what the future violents has been working on before anyone else in the world… we will also hangout, sign stuff, and probably have a snack. (who likes ramen?!?) We’ll also take a group picture on the bus each and every night and at the end of the tour, we will post all the pictures on my instagram so all your friends that didn’t come will be jealous of you and badger you endlessly about what the future sounds like. If you would like to hang out with me and my friends next month, ten passes per night are available now at: https://kr-m.co/frankiero You are gonna get to hang on our bus! You are gonna be immortalized on the grammys (that’s what I call instagram)! You are gonna see how untidy we are! You are gonna get insider knowledge dropped into your ear holes!
