Ever since Max Green and Ronnie Radke reconciled in 2013, fans have speculated on the future of Falling In Reverse and Escape The Fate. Some have said they expected Max to leave Escape The Fate once more, to join Falling In Reverse.
Those expectations have proven to be correct. It was announced today that Ronnie and Max are once again band mates. Max is now Falling In Reverse's bassist, and the previous bassist, Ron Ficarro is taking his leave from the band.
"Ron was probably the best bass player I've ever played with,” Ronnie states, “but at this moment in time I feel it is best to part ways with him. I respect him and wish nothing but the best for him. Max quitting Escape The Fate was like a godsend. It was a no brainer to have him join. I've known him half my life and this will be a great new chapter to start."
In Max's departure announcement he states that at the end of the day he simply states that Escape The Fate is great, but at the end of the day he does not feel fufilled at the end of the day as an Escape The Fate member.
“So it comes with a heavy heart that I have to announce my departure from Escape The Fate. This decision of mine did not come hastily, it had been something ive fought back amd forth with since my return to the band earlier this year. The guys are great, and they do great at what they do, but for me personally, the vision i had for thia band in the begining is far far from what it is today and I know that times change but I can't help feeling unfulfilled at the end of the day when I lay my head down to sleep. I love, LOVE my fans more than almost anything in this world and I thank them for welcoming me back and this is not me quitting music, I promise youll all be seeing me again. At the end of the day I have to do whats best for my life and my wellbeing. I want everyone to know that im not on drugs, im doing great and am in a great positive state of mind abiut this decision. ....in the words of a true las vegas native....you got to know when to hold em, and know when to fold em. Thank you, I love you and will be seeing you soon”
He also has been quoted saying, "Reuniting with longtime friend Ronnie Radke in his band Falling In Reverse feels nothing but right at this time in my life. I look to forward to playing shows and creating memories together again with him and his amazing band of bros."
It is to be assumed that TJ Bell will return to playing bass in Escape The Fate, rather than the guitar he is currently playing, though that is simply an assumption, as Escape The Fate has yet to speak up on the matter.
