We knew Ronnie Radke and crew were in the studio working on a follow-up to their Epitaph debut The Drug In Me Is You, but what we never expected was how the final results would sound.
Around 10AM EST today, May 7, Falling In Reverse announced plans to release a new album entitled Fashionably Late on June 18. The artwork for the album has been released and can be found after the jump, but no further details or pre-order information was released. We’ll update you as additional information begins to surface.
Alongside the news of their new album, Falling In Reverse also released a new song entitled “Alone.” The track features an EDM-heavy structure, as well as Radke rapping about how much better his life is than yours, including the line “what you spend in fifteen months is what i spend in fifteen minutes.” You can stream the song at the end of this post.
We have never been the biggest fans of Ronnie Radke’s work, but “Alone” pretty much seals the coffin on us covering Falling In Reverse much further in the future. If there is one thing the recent resurrection of leather-clad rock bands does not need it’s the influence of hip hop culture. The two do not gel, at least not on this track, and the soulless lyrics (though not exactly a new thing) squash any hope for substance. For a man that has been through and accused of as much as Radke, he seems to have almost nothing original to say. God forbid he ever loses track of his ego, or FIR will find themselves without a thing to write about.
