"...hang out for a few days in whatever places that will let us ... because we don't need a festival ground to make a memory."
Not one to let a Soundwave Festival cancellation stop him, Frnkiero (that's Frank Iero, former guitarist of My Chemical Romance and mastermind behind Frnkiero andthe cellabration.) has announced he'll be headed our way anyway this month to play some free acoustic shows and conduct some signings.
What a guy.
He explains, "Dear Australian friends, I'm so sorry soundwave 2016 got cancelled. I know you must be super bummed, but believe me, the feeling is mutual! I was really looking forward to getting to play for you all.
"I mean hell I love Australia... in fact I love it so much I thought fuck it, I'm coming anyway! So I'm bringing my brother Evan, and a couple of guitars and we're gonna play some songs for you and sign some records and hang out for a few days in whatever places that will let us ... because we don't need a festival ground to make a memory. see you soon."
