There’s musicians and then there’s Rockstars, it’s without a doubt that Ronnie Radke is the latter.
Voted as Alternative Press magazine’s 2012 “Artist of the Year,” one of Revolver’s “100 Greatest Living Rock Stars” and Kerrang’s “50 Greatest Rock Stars In The World,” Radke’s band Falling In Reverse will release their second album Fashionably Late on June 18th on Epitaph Records. It’s the follow up to their Top 20 debut The Drug In Me Is You.
Since forming in 2008, Falling In Reverse have racked up a fanatical fan base, so much so that the band’s legendary videos have been viewed over 30 million times.
The attitude of the 1980’s Sunset Strip, the bravado of battle-ready rap, the take-no-prisoners bottom end of metalcore and the boundless revelry of underground EDM parties have all beautifully converged in this one band and this new album. It’s for everyone on Instagram, on Twitter, or anyone with a brain and two ears.
“My dad raised me on metal, but my first serious love was hip-hop,” Ronnie explains. “When I heard Dr. Dre’s The Chronic, that’s when I fell in love. I didn’t know what the hell they were talking about, the beats were intertwined, and it came inside of me and took me over. When we added hip-hop elements I was thinking, ‘Should I do this? This sounds crazy! Are people going to like this?’ Now I’ve never been so proud of something. The final product, Fashionably Late, is the best work I’ve ever done.”
The first single from Fashionably Late will be “Alone.” Blending big radio beats with moshpit inducing riffage, the track addresses Ronnie’s critics head-on. “It’s everything I’ve ever wanted to say to all these Twitter followers that talk shit,” he says. “I wanted to let everyone that dedicates their lives to just one genre of music know why they are so unhappy.”
The brand new video for the single which is completely over the top can be viewed below.
