Fronted by former Escape the Fate frontman Ronnie Radke, Falling in Reverse is a post-hardcore band based out of Nevada. The band was formed by Radke while he was serving time in Nevada's High Desert State Prison for a 2008 parole violation. While imprisoned, Radke recruited guitarists Derek Jones and Jacky Vincent, drummer Ryan Seaman, and bassist Mika Horiuchi to help him realize the musical vision he was creating in his head while behind bars, meeting with his bandmates during visiting hours and spending the rest of his time writing.
After serving two-and-a-half years of a four-year sentence, Radke was released in late 2010, and the band set to work on their debut, bringing the driving, melodic sound to life in 2011 with the release of The Drug in Me Is You. Radke and co. returned to the studio in 2012 to record their sophomore release, Fashionably Late. Released in mid-2013, the album saw the band adding hip-hop and electronic elements to their original post-hardcore sound. Heavier and more screamo-oriented, the band's third studio long player, Just Like You, followed in early 2015.
