Falling in Reverse Singer Ronnie Radke Explains ‘The Drug in Me Is You’
Las Vegas-born post-hardcore band Falling in Reverse are making a statement with their just-released album, ‘The Drug in Me is You.’ The guitar-driven, contemplative collection debuted No. 19 on the Billboard 200 chart earlier this month, pushing more than 18,000 copies.
So, how did the guys celebrate? With two secret shows in California — one on Aug. 8 at Chain Reaction in Anaheim and a second on Aug. 9 at the Key Club in Hollywood, Calif.
“We’re just low-keying it,” frontman Ronnie Radke’s tells Loudwire. “We have these secret shows, and they’re the first shows we’ve ever played. I think the fact we debuted at No. 19 without having played one show yet is pretty incredible … We’re definitely ready to celebrate.”
Radke, who is the former frontman for Escape the Fate, says the title, ‘The Drug in Me is You,’ is one of self-reflection.
“We named it that because it was basically me, talking to myself,” he said. “It’s me, looking in the mirror, saying, ‘I am my own worst energy. I do the worst damage to myself— more than anybody else can to do me.’ It’s obviously from my past experiences.”
