Falling In Reverse:

From its origins in a Nevada jail cell, post-hardcore outfit Falling in Reverse went on to achieve significant success in the 2010s. Fronted by former Escape the Fate frontman Ronnie Radke, the band notched a gold record on their first attempt with 2011’s The Drug in Me Is You. Over the ensuing years, Radke and stalwart guitarist Derek Jones led Falling in Reverse through numerous lineups and a succession of consistently charting albums including 2015’s Just Like You and 2017’s Coming Home. Following 2019’s hit stand-alone single “Popular Monster,” Jones died unexpectedly, and Radke soldiered on into the next decade with a new lineup that produced the 2022 EP Neon Zombie.

Falling in Reverse was formed by Radke while he was serving time in Nevada’s High Desert State Prison for a 2008 parole violation. While imprisoned, Radke recruited guitarists Derek Jones and Jacky Vincent, drummer Ryan Seaman, and bassist Mika Horiuchi to help him realize the musical vision he was creating in his head while behind bars, meeting with his bandmates during visiting hours and spending the rest of his time writing. After serving two and a half years of a four-year sentence, Radke was released in late 2010, and the band set to work on their debut, bringing their driving, melodic sound to life in 2011 with the release of The Drug in Me Is You. Horiuchi left the band and was replaced by Ron Ficarro in early 2012. That year, Radke and the new lineup returned to the studio to record their sophomore release, Fashionably Late. Released in mid-2013, the album saw the band adding hip-hop and electronic elements to their original post-hardcore sound. The album fared well on the charts but received little support from critics. The band kicked off a tour in support of the effort, which was cut short by the birth of Radke’s son.

In early 2014, Falling in Reverse hit the road again, this time with Radke’s former band, Escape the Fate, on the Bury the Hatchet tour. Ficarro parted ways with the band once the tour concluded, his slot filled by Escape the Fate‘s Max Green (who ended up leaving the band after just five months, replaced by Zakk Sandler).

The band’s third studio long-player, Just Like You (Epitaph), arrived in early 2015 and fared better with critics. Keeping Fashionably Late’s experiments with hip-hop on the sidelines, Just Like You saw the band returning to a heavier and more scream-centric focus. They toured for much of the year, parting with longtime guitarist Jacky Vincent that October, and continuing promotion with his replacement, Christian Thompson. Their fourth album, Coming Home, arrived in 2017 bearing a slightly more diverse and emotive sound. Not long after its release, drummer Ryan Seaman left the band while a handful of different sticksmen filled in for him. Over the next few years, Falling in Reverse switched their focus to non-album singles and landed a chart-topper in 2019’s platinum-selling “Popular Monster.”

Guitarist and founding member Derek Jones died on April 21, 2020; he was 35 years old. A few months after his death, the group released the single “Carry On.” With Radke now the only original member, he led a retooled lineup that included guitarists Christian Thompson and Max Georgiev, bassist Tyler Burgess, and touring drummer Luke Holland into the band’s next phase. Co-producing with Dangerkids singer Tyler Smith, Falling in Reverse issued the 2022 EP Neon Zombie. ~ Gregory Heaney & Neil Z. Yeung, Rovi
