Attila’s Chris Fronzak On Spiritbox/Falling In Reverse Situation: “Imagine Withdrawing From A F*cking Arena Tour Because ‘Twitter Told You To'” (Updated)


Attila frontman Chris Fronzak has publicly come out against Spiritbox‘s decision to drop off their summer tour with Falling In Reverse. As reported earlier today (March 13th), Spiritbox officially withdrew from their six scheduled dates of Falling In Reverse‘s summer headlining tour. That trek will see Ice Nine Kills as direct support and was announced last week.

It has been a bumpy road for some of the opening bands booked for that tour however, as several of them were met with intense backlash across social media for their decision to sign on for it. Given his controversial reputation, Falling In Reverse frontman Ronnie Radke was a unsurprisingly a point of contention for many of those speaking out. Crown The Empire‘s involvement on several dates also didn’t sit well with some.

Per the various comments made decrying the trek, it would seem that those unhappy with the tour took issue with Radke‘s allegedly problematic behavior over the years. Crown The Empire were also a lightning rod for controversy in the wake of abuse allegations that were made against their guitarist/vocalist Brandon Hoover by an ex-girlfriend last year.

The band publicly responded to those allegations last month, issuing a pair of statements denying them. Radke himself rallied behind Hoover last month, posting a series of tweets in which he claimed that accuser had made a false accusation.

This all leads us to Fronzak taking to Twitter on the matter today. As unlikely as it may seem given Fronzak‘s long history of publicly beefing with Radke, Fronzak appears to have put aside his personal feelings toward the latter to rail against cancel culture in general.

Radke and Fronzak have been bitter enemies over the years, with the pair having this latest alleged blowout on the ‘ShipRocked‘ cruise in January of this year.

Fronzak is also no stranger to cancel culture, having faced backlash throughout his career for using homophobic slurs in his lyrics, along with other controversial actions. Fronzak himself also faced a sexual misconduct allegation back in June of 2020. He would go on to to publicly deny that claim.

A series of tweets were made by Fronzak today regarding Spiritbox‘s decision to withdraw from the aforementioned tour, along with the validity of cancel culture as a whole. You can read what he had to say below:

Update: March 13th, 2023 10:45 PM:

Fronzak has continued the conversation, with Oceano vocalist Adam Warren also chiming in. Furthermore, Fronzak implied that he and Radke aren’t beefing.
