It isn’t often that I will laud a tour that isn’t making one of its stops in our general area but today I am doing it for you. Yes this is all for you my fine-feathered readers from outside of my Metal Metropolis. How cool is that? I think very much so and you will have to pardon my being silly but its very late in the evening and I am slowly falling asleep. Too much running around and so little sleep. Here we go with the latest and greatest from the band Falling In Reverse.
The Press Release:
After a spate of summer tour dates that saw them appearing at festivals such as Chicago Open Air and Rise Above Fest, as well as a handful of “must see” special appearance at the Vans Warped Tour, where they are a perennial favorite, Falling In Reverse have announced their fall tour plans.
The band will embark on “Coming Home to Madness,” a co-headline tour with All That Remains. Ocean Grove will also appear. The first leg of dates kicks off on September 25 in Lawrence, Kansas and runs through October 6 in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Falling In Reverse will also appear at multiple festivals this fall, including Self Help and Louder Than Life. The band is supporting its critically acclaimed new album Coming Home, released via Epitaph Records this past April. It was a massive sonic and artistic leap forward for Falling In Reverse.
Revolver described Coming Home as “a sonically cohesive” album in its band profile, while Outburn called Coming Home “sonically gripping from start to finish and impressive every step of the way, with neither Radke nor the band losing their edge” in its 10 out of 10 review. Meanwhile, Alternative Press raved in its four-star review that “the album maintains a brilliant balance between uplifting and date.”

PiercingMetal Thoughts: As I think of it I am pretty sure that I have only ever seen the band in action in the live sense twice and that was some years ago by my count now. I’m not sure how I’ve missed a few of their headlining runs but when you live in a Metal Metropolis like this one, I find that if you blink there are eleven things for you to do with your time. I honestly wouldn’t have it any other way but I digress. The one band that I have seen on a number of occasions and always get a Metal charge out of it the All That Remains crew. Granted its been a few years since my last go round but if this tour promotes a second leg or adds dates that find it coming to our neck of the woods I will do my best to be in attendance. What do you readers think about this one? You can let me know down in those comments below. See you next time.
