Throughout history, music has served as a society's barometer for social and political conditions. From Bob Dylan's folk protest anthems of the 60's, to a the Dead Kennedys' acerbic left-wing diatribes in the midst of the Reagan era to Rage Against The Machine's criticism of U.S. domestic and foreign policy in the 90's to Green Day's stand against the U.S. administration in the 2000's, music has always been the counter-culture's mouthpiece for highlighting injustices. That's why it's no surprise that now, in shadow of one of the country's darkest decades, LeATHERMOUTH has emerged with XO, an album that rails against the social and political offenses that are happening today. Frank Iero is pissed. Years of anger and rage building up as the country went to hell left him unable to contain his antagonism any longer. In 2007, Iero, guitarist of the hugely popular rock band My Chemical Romance, reached his tipping point and created LeATHERMOUTH with Rob Hughes, a friend from Iero's home state of New Jersey.
