Falling in Reverse from Las Vegas are the pure expression of the inner turmoil of its founder and head Ronnie Radke. He is not only a gifted singer, shouter and musician, but must be described with his highly charismatic charisma as an absolute rock star. The vehicle for selling his inner demons, questions and doubts since 2008, after he had left in 2004 founded by him band Escape the Fate, listening to the name Falling in Reverse. Two studio albums sufficed the formation to play in the top league of US post-hardcore. Both albums rose to # 4 in the US Rock, # 3 in the US Alternative and # 2 on the US Hard Rock Charts, and also on the Billboard 200 charts `The Drug in Me Is You.` (2011) and `Fashionably Late` (2013) in the top 20. Currently, the band is working on the successor, which is loosely announced for 2015; it is still unclear whether he has already appeared on the tour of Germany, which will lead Falling in Reverse between February 4 and 15 through Hamburg, Berlin, Munich, Karlsruhe and Cologne.Ronnie Radke`s childhood was not simple. Together with his brother, he grew up with his grandfather in a poor outskirts of Las Vegas and got it initially on the wrong track. His focus was always music, for him the appropriate means to express his anger and inner breaks. With the band founded by him Escape the Fate, he found almost immediate attention in the US hardcore scene - until he caught up with his past in 2008 and he was sentenced to a four-year prison sentence. Reason enough for Escape the Fate to throw him out of the band. Still in prison, he formed a new group, which was initially named After Behind These Walls and after numerous changes of occupation finally Falling in reverse baptized.Immediately after Radke`s early release in 2010, the band, fresh from the punk and hardcore label `Epitaph`, plunged into the debut album `The Drug in Me Is You,` which immediately shook up the American hardcore scene. 2012 was followed by numerous, for a debutant highly unusual honors: The Alternative Press Magazine named Falling in Reverse for `Artist of the Year`, the Revolver magazine chose Radke among the `100 Greatest Living Rock Stars` and the British Kerrang! Magazine even among the `50 Greatest Rock Stars in the World`. On top of that, `The Drug in Me Is You` also turned out to be a staggering commercial success. A more than one-year world tour was the result. Inspired by this feedback, Ronnie Radke had the courage to experiment on the band`s second album with another childhood sweetheart: in the powerful post-hardcore songs he wove numerous hiphop elements, both in vocals and in the sound design. While this did not necessarily inspire undivided enthusiasm in the purist hardcore scene, this courage did not detract from its commercial success. And Radke commented on this radical step: `There are things that just have to be done once. The hip-hop part of `Fashionably Late` is one of them. `Following a much acclaimed world tour, the band, which currently teems with Radke, guitarists Jacky Vincent and Derek Jones, and drummer Ryan Seaman, picked up the next album. When that will appear, is still unclear. But it is clear that stylistically it will represent a return to the classic hardcore, as Radke already composed in the days of Escape the Fate. So it remains exciting in the highly emotional brute world of Falling in Reverse.
