With their third album, Just Like You, dropping in February, Falling in Reverse recently released a hilarious new video for the record’s title track.
In “Just Like You,” the band skewers reality talent competitions like The Voice and American Idol, with frontman Ronnie Radke impersonating such personalities as Simon Cowell, Jessie J and Steven Tyler. A costumed Radke judges several hopefuls as they try to win the contest with their desperate performances.
Make sure to keep a close eye on those appearing in the clip, too, as it features cameos from comedian Andy Dick, the Word Alive’s Telle Smith and We Are Harlot’s Danny Worsnop.
Falling in Reverse certainly threw a party on stage when they recently performed their cover of “Gangsta’s Paradise” at the inaugural Alternative Press Music Awards.
Held in Cleveland outside the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Falling in Reverse were joined by Tyler Carter of Issues and the one-and-only Coolio, who originally recorded the song for his 1995 album of the same name.
Check out all the action in the clip after the jump. (more…)
Falling in Reverse decided to call their current run of shows with Escape the Fate the “Bury the Hatchet Tour,” and Wednesday night’s kickoff at Los Angeles’ Wiltern Theatre certainly embodied that sentiment.
Not only did both bands deliver killer sets, but FIR frontman Ronnie Radke closed out the evening by performing two songs with Escape the Fate, marking the first time he’d shared the stage with his former group in over six years.
That joyous moment was met with wild cheers, as Radke and the guys from Escape the Fate tore through “Not Good Enough for Truth in Cliché” and “Situations” before the lights popped on inside the historic venue.
Before that, however, Radke and Falling in Reverse nearly blew the roof off the Wiltern.
An enthusiastic crowd chattered in anticipation while the crew set up Falling in Reverse’s gear, a din that only increased as a black curtain was slowly lowered to obscure the band’s entrance. Once it rose, a pair of white risers flanked drummer Ryan Seaman, whose kit sat atop a video screen that displayed graphics and song titles throughout the concert. (more…)
