Editorial Reviews

Pencey Prep was a band formed from the ex-members of local punk heroes Sector 12 (Riverside Riot Records) and Stick Figure Suicide (Umbilical/Reinforcement Records0. The band consisted of : Frank Lero (Lead Vocals, Guitar) Shaun Simon (Keyboards), John Hambone McGuire (Bass, Vocals), Neil Sabatino (Guitar, Vocals), and Tim Hagevik (Drums). They were a rare mix of punk, emo, and indie rock. The band's line up included 2 guitars, keyboards, bass, drums, and vocals and has been compared to the band The Anniversary. Pencey Prep officially released Hearthbreak In Stereo Eyeball Records in fall 2001 and disbanded shortly after. Before bands like The Used and Thursday were mainstream successes, Pencey Prep was creating music that fused many styles of music together while keeping true to punk rock roots.

This is a DEFINATE MUST to any emo/indie lovers collection. The eerie keyboard and astonashing vocals are enough to blow anyone away. Its an awful shame that they broke up because this is good music! If you dont already own Heartbreak in Stereo, you should order it as soon as possible. You will NOT be dissapointed. And If you think My Chemical Romance is good with Frank as guitarist, you should check him out as lead singer/frontman! Fantabulous..

A Kid's Review on July 26, 2005
Format: Audio CD
heartbreak in stereo is one of the most friggin awesome cd's out there...it's a shame that pencey had to split...but now frank's in mcr, which is another great band.

if you're into emo...with some screamo thrown in...you need this cd.

you'll regret it if you don't get it.

i know it...you'll just start crying after you realize there's no more copies.

A Kid's Review on December 15, 2005
Format: Audio CD
I used to listen to Pencey Prep all the time on limewire, so when i found out that my actual ten faveorite pencey prep songs where on one CD i rejoiced. its an awesome cd, with haunting keyboards and the vocals are amazing! i also love my chemical romance, but i didnt know that frankie's voice is so amazing. its a great cd- definetly worth buying, especially since this band isnt around anymore. i just wish i could clone frankie so i can have both mcr and pencey prep in my life.

This is a really awesome cd. If you just listen to it a few times and give it a chance, you will really love it. They just sound so real. Really great instrumentals, and really great singing. The complete package.

Listening to Frank Iero scream in the background on My Chemical Romance songs, I was a little skeptical about him fronting a band. But, being the amazing guitarist that he is, I had to check out that he'd done with Pencey Prep. And I wasn't disappointed. Anyone who says guitar players can't sing have never listened to Frank Iero. It's a shame that Pencey is no longer together because, in my opinion, they could have gone really far. But at least we have Heartbreak In Stereo. Another unfortunate item is that some of the demos that Pencey prep did were not released on this album. Everything they have ever done is amazing, and I highly recommend Heartbreak In Stereo to anyone and everyone who is looking for something a little different.

pencey prep is the ex-band of my chemical romance's guitarist, frank iero. but it's even more orginial than many other emo/indie sound out there. the keyboard is just so special and spookier than anythign on my chemical romance. and frank can sing. i really wish they didn't break up so there could be more songs like theirs!

This CD is a masterpiece. Very strange, but grasping lyrics. I am really sad that they are no longer together, but something good came out of it. Who ever knew Frank Iero had such a lovely singing voice?! I reccomend this CD to anyone and everyone!

These guys are by far one of the best bands to break up. Their sound is so original, it'll make you hit replay over and over again. (Frankie [ lead singer/guitarist ] is now in My Chemical Romance..another AMAZING band).
