A few days ago, Falling In Reverse announced an upcoming headlining tour where they would be joined by Ice Nine Kills, Underoath, Slaughter To Prevail, Crown The Empire, Catch Your Breath, and Spiritbox.
However, as of quite recently, Spiritbox has removed all postings on their social media in regard to this upcoming tour.
Why might this be? Well, it is possibly due to the amount of fan backlash the band has received in regard to taking part in this tour (and Spiritbox is not the only band to catch flack for being part of the run). A lot of folks are not happy to see Spiritbox and the other bands taking part in a tour where they would be supporting Falling In Reverse frontman Ronnie Radke.
Radke has been accused of problematic behavior, has been charged with battery for his involvement in a fight that led to a death, and some have even made claims of abuse against him. Back in 2015, a woman came forward and claimed that Radke sexually assaulted her.
With all this in mind, several folks online have expressed how upset they are to see bands they care about taking part in a tour with Radke.
Coincidentally, since fan backlash has appeared online, Spiritbox has removed all mentions of their involvement with this tour from their social media. There has been no official announcement from the band, but if Spiritbox is no longer part in this tour, it is possible they may release some kind of statement.
More on this story as it develops.
Earlier today, we reported on a story involving Radke getting into a heated back-and-forth with the frontman from Monuments. A woman on Twitter claimed that Radke had violently attacked her in the past; when the Falling In Reverse frontman saw this, he went off on multiple tweeting tangents. When the Monuments singer tried confronting him about this, Radke flew off at him. You can read all these tweets by following the link below.
