I Lied video just posted by the official Electric Century youtube channel.
Frank Iero - "B.F.F." video premiere - Alternative Press
"[B.F.F.] began when my daughter Lily started singing this song she wrote over and over again at the top of her lungs whenever her and her siblings would get into a fight," Iero told us. "One day I sat down with her and a guitar and we figured out the melody and finished the song together."
He continued, “While I was tracking some stuff for my upcoming record in my home studio, the kids kept asking my wife what daddy was up to downstairs. So I thought what better way to show them than by recording Lily’s song together. We tracked everything ourselves at home and when it was done, we sent it to the amazing Ed Rose who mixed the track and then to Alan Douches for mastering.”
Iero remained true to his DIY ethos with the creation of this video—his first ever venture into the world of music video production.
"We cleared out a room, set up a tripod, and over a 3 day period filmed us performing the song. I then edited the footage together myself into the video you’re about to see. So now at the ripe old age of 3.5 Cherry and Lily are releasing their first single, having their first music video premiere on AltPress.com, and preparing for their and their brother’s college education all at the same time, and I’m basically the proudest dad in the history of the world."
Exclusive: Electric Century Reveal Dark Inspiration Behind ‘I Lied’
'There is no happy ending,' band tells MTV News about their first single.
Last week, when former My Chemical Romancebassist Mikey Way spoke with MTV News about his new band,Electric Century, he told us that he had chosen the name because it represented “change.”
"When people first used the term ‘Electric Century,’ it represented the shift from steam power to electricity, and it changed the entire universe," he said. "And, for me,thisis a complete change in my life.”
And he wasn’t kidding. Because on Monday, Electric Century unveiled their first song, a soaring slice of synth-pop called”I Lied”that is most definitelya departure from anything in Way (or his songwriting partner Dave Debiak’s) past … not to mention a hint of what’s to come.

Video for the song premieres tomorrow on the AltPress website.
I won’t be posting the audio here as Frank’s initial post about the song release seemed to imply that is something he really doesn’t want anyone to do.
“all proceeds from the sales of this recording will go directly into Lily, Cherry, and Miles Iero’s respective college funds (so no piracy please…you will literally be stealing from a baby).”
I encourage you all to purchase the song if you can and please respect his wishes by not posting it until the official video goes up tomorrow.
