Ex-My Chemical Romance guitarist Frank Iero has announced details of his new solo project, "Frnkiero and the Cellabration," DIY reports (via NME).

Iero previously shared a handful of tracks last year, including the EP "For Jamia..." He has now shared news of a debut full-length record under the new name. "Stomachaches" will be released on August 26 via his own Staple Records imprint B.Calm Press. The album was recorded at his B.Calm home studio and New Jersey's North End Recording, with additional vocals completed at Backstage Studios.

Writing on his official website, the guitarist revealed he wrote and performed all 12 of the album's songs, except for drums on nine tracks, which were played by My Chemical Romance drummer Jarrod Alexander.

"I'm really looking forward to sharing this record with all of you," Iero wrote. "These songs came from deep inside me and became my salvation at a certain point. And up until this August I will have kept the majority of them a secret from everyone. They were just mine, and now I am ready to give them up to all of you."

The tracklisting for "Stomachaches" is as follows:

    I'm only interested in what Ray Toro is gonna be doing. He was a shit hot guitarist.
    Frank is a pretty interesting guitarist too, nowhere near the technical ability of Toro - but the way their styles worked together (or against each other) was the best thing about MCR.
    Donno when exactly, but he's gonna be releasing a solo album Minimization Procedure sometime this year
