After a lengthily stint in jail , Former Escape the Fate lead vocalist Ronnie Radke is back with a new and improved formula. Falling in Reverse was formed in 2010, but only began to record in late December, when Ronnie was released from prison. Their first album The Drug in Me Is You was released on the 26th of July 2011, the amalgamation of genuine a post-hardcore and punk is not unique but it is done to perfection.
They lyrical styling’s of Radke come from close personal issues that he has had to face over the past couple of years. This album deals with both his prison sentence, being kicked out of Escape the Fate and his former friendship with Escape the Fate bassist Max Green. Falling in reverse are currently signed to Epitaph Records ,the band’s first tour took place from September 2011 until the beginning of November 2011 with supporting acts Eyes Set To Kill and For All Those Sleeping and their maiden supporting tour will commence from November 2011 with Headlining act Black Veil Brides and supporting acts Aiden and Drive-A.
Falling in reverse have to date released two music videos , one for the lead song off the album ” The Drug In Me Is You ” and one for their track ” I’m Not A Vampire ” , which is a satirical take on both Ronnie’s time in prison and rehab. This album so far has had mixed success both critically and commercially , ” Allmusic contributor Gregory Heaney gave the album an overall score of three out of a possible five, noting that the lyrics “feel more genuinely personal than his earlier work”, and that “there’s a real sense of urgent catharsis at work” He concludes, “The combination of a tight, talented band and a tortured frontman doesn’t necessarily make Falling in Reverse a revelatory band, but is does make The Drug in Me Is You a very solid album “.
This fits into the dynamics of a band that is willing to move ahead of what they were in the past. overall Falling in Reverse’s Debut album The Drug In Me Is You is a brilliant piece of work and I would personally give it 4 out of a possible 5 stars
