Recently, Falling In Reverse has been on tour with I See Stars, Matt Toka, Enter Shakri and Letlive, and everyone assumed things were going great. That was until Falling In Reverse's frontman, Ronnie Radke posted a statement on Facebook, saying that they were kicking I See Stars off the tour. The official statement is below,
"I wanted to let everyone know that I See Stars is no longer on tour. We had offered them the tour several months back, and then not long afterward, the entire band was arrested for drug possession. If you have been following my story, you know I am very serious about my sobriety and have been sober for 4+ years now. I decided to remove them from the tour at the time because I did not drug users in my environment. After we informed them they would no longer be on the tour for that reason, their label approached us and asked us to give them a 2nd chance, they assured us the band would not use drugs and they would be professional on my tour. We came to an agreement and I gave them their 2nd chance. Throughout this entire tour, they have been unprofessional. They have rarely showed up on time and have caused undue difficulty on my crew plus employees of the various venues. It's been next to impossible to keep the show running on time. I feel at this point we have no choice but to continue on without them. We're simply trying to deliver the best possible show to all you guys and we don't feel like we can do that with I See Stars. We're stoked to continue on with Enter Shikari, Letlive and Matt Toka (on select dates). I'll see you at the shows. Love and respect, Ronnie."
The statement you just read was posted on Falling In Reverse's Facebook page on November 2, 2012. Just three hours later, I See Stars posted a response of sorts on their Facebook page saying the following, "We have been kicked off of the Falling In Reverse tour by Ronnie Radke. It has nothing to do with "drugs" or "being late". His statement is entirely false. An official statement from Summerian Records showing the truth of why we were removed is coming. All emails and contacts have been documented and will be showing publicly in response to Ronnie's post. You will find out exactly what happened, and you will be disgusted to say the least. We promise you our being ejected from the tour has absolutely nothing to do with his lies about drug abuse on tour, or being late. It has everything to do with Ronnie's antagonistic violent behavior toward us, his ego, his malicious intent, his financial greed, and his demands of no one being allowed to know the truth behind the scenes of this tour."
Summerian Records has yet to make their official statement in regards to this whole ordeal, but as soon as they do, people can guarantee it will not be good. While I See Stars was arrested for the possession of halluciongenics on August 30, and did stay in jail for thirteen hours, nothing more has been said about the event.
Who's really at fault here? Is it I See Stars? Or is Ronn
These are just some of the happenings in the music world. There will always be something that Immortal Music did not cover, but here are just some events.
