Falling in Reverse have released their fourth album Coming Home, out today on Epitaph Records. Coming Home is the follow-up to 2015’s Just Like You which debut at #6 on the Aria album chart (also the highest chart debut in the world).
This is Ronnie Radke’s latest reinvention, coming full-circle back to the start, reinvigorated as mad scientist conductor of soaring, transcendent, engaging alternative pop-rock with massive radio hooks and a still-beating heavy metal hardcore heart. Broken, Loser, Hanging On, I Don’t Mind, and Coming Home are shocking in their epic scope, vibrant authenticity, and unrelenting dedication to personal truth.
It’s the most focused Falling In Reverse album, thematically and artistically. Crafted once again with Michael “Elvis” Baskette (Alter Bridge, Slash, Trivium), who has worked on every one of Radke’s records going back to the now-classic debut album from Escape The Fate, the record sees the group at their most atmospheric. It’s the latest bold step for a frontman who has defined himself by a mixture of courage and vulnerability, of bravado and introspection. He’s tightened his personal inner circle and withdrawn from the antics of the past as he’s poured even more of himself into his art.
Coming Home is the album Radke dreamed about making as a kid, teaching himself to play guitar with Blink-182 and Green Day songs, rapping along to Dr. Dre and Eminem, skipping school, going to shows, and doing whatever it took to redefine his life beyond the hardscrabble circumstances of his upbringing, even when the obstacles were of his own design.
Title track Coming Home was released in late December 2016 and has garnered over 2 million Youtube views and over 1.9 million streams on Spotify. Earlier this week the band released the official video for Coming Home.
“This video is an analogy of the dichotomies between my personal life and my public life — a lonely traveler content on fulfilling the dreams he set out on, but missing out on everything he has at home. A bittersweet duality,” said frontman Ronnie Radke.
