Ronnie Radke On Spiritbox Dropping Off Of Falling In Reverse’s Summer Tour: “I Feel Sorry For Them As Some Of Their Fans Are Awful”


Given his long resume of online beef, some expected Falling In Reverse frontman Ronnie Radke to disparage Spiritbox for their recent decision to withdraw from Falling In Reverse‘s summer headlining tour. While not alone in the situation, Spiritbox were among the various openers booked for that trek who found themselves facing some intense backlash on social media for their decision to join the bill.

Radke‘s allegedly problematic behavior over the years, and the involvement of Crown The Empire in the tour, seemingly fueled the uproar against the various opening acts, which include Ice Nine Kills, Underoath, Slaughter To Prevail and more.

Spiritbox themselves have been shown to champion inclusivity and consent in the past, which led to them getting perhaps the worst of the backlash across social media. Given the past allegations that have been leveled at Radke and the the since denied allegation of domestic violence made against Crown The Empire‘s Brandon Hoover last year, it would appear that some fans felt Spiritbox were compromising their beliefs and ideals by being a part of the tour.

Spiritbox didn’t offer any explanation as to why they withdrew from the run, but a recent response from Radke himself appears to confirm that it was due to the online backlash.

Addressing a fan who was commending him for not dissing Spiritbox for their withdrawal, Radke said earlier today (March 20th):
