Falling in Reverse Singer Ronnie Radke Explains ‘The Drug in Me Is You’

Epitaph Records

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.”

Check back next week with Loudwire for our full interview with Radke. We cover the new album, the Warped Tour and how Radke’s time in prison made him a more motivated musician.
