On Thursday night I found myself in San Diego with Escape The Fate and Falling In Reverse on that night at a local venue. 

I asked my few friends in San Diego to go with me, but nobody was really interested so I decided to go on my own. I’m not sure if this makes me cool or uncool, but it feel great to be able to walk into a venue on your own and not feel inadequate.

I have always been surrounded by people who like the same music as me, so this was a completely new thing. 

The day I first heard Escape The Fate, I was standing in my boyfriends kitchen years and years ago and the video for Situations came onto Channel V. I find it hard to explain, but my life changed forever that day.

To be able to go and see Ronnie Radke perform on the same stage as Escape The Fate was a crazy but wonderful feeling. I don’t really care too much for Falling in Reverse’s music mostly, but at the end Ronnie shared the stage with Escape The Fate and they performed ‘Truth and Cliche’ and ‘Situations’ and it was a dream come true.

'Situations' is my ultimate favourite song of all time ever and I even have a tattoo with a line from it.

It’s crazy how music can change your life and become such a huge part of who you are. 

I wouldn’t be who I am today without seeing that video that day all those years ago.

Here is Ronnie Radkes tell all interview for Alternative Press!

Last week, former Escape The Fate vocalist RONNIE RADKE got out of prison, after spending nearly two-and-a-half-years there. In January 2008, the 27-year-old was convicted of battery with substantial bodily harm for his role in a high-profile May 2006 fight in his hometown of Las Vegas that left 18-year-old Michael Cook dead. Radke originally avoided jail time, but after violating terms of his probation, he was sent to prison in August 2008. While incarcerated, Radke started a new band, From Behind These Walls, which is now known as FALLING IN REVERSE. The band are planning to leave next week for Orlando, Florida, to record their debut with producer Elvis Baskette. Earlier this week, Radke opened up exclusively to Altpress about FIR’s forthcoming music, what jail was like, being sober, how he’s changed and how he feels toward toward Escape The Fate and his replacement, Craig Mabbitt.
