Falling In Reverse has finally released the long-awaited debut single from their upcoming second album “Fashionably Late” due to be released June 18th. The debut track is named Alone, and this song is a polarizing one to say the least. Alone is directed to all of the haters of Ronnie and his band. Ronnie unleashing rap verses in between choruses, and depending who you ask, this is can be anywhere from horrid to amazing. Me personally, I didn’t like it at first, but they grew on me. For those familiar with Deuce (formally of Hollywood Undead fame) or who follows all of Radke’s musical exploits, Deuce had Ronnie do guest vocals for the track Nobody Likes Me on Deuce’s debut album Nine Lives. And Ronnie did rap vocals there. And it was actually pretty impressive. Here, it isn’t the same style, but for me, it works. Not as well, but it does. The instrumentals are a mix of hip-hop beats gently in the background with the heavy sound of FIR in the foreground. With some good burns in the rap verses, great screams leading into each chorus, and some nice lyrical prowess in the chorus, Alone is an awesome way to introduce the public to the new Falling In Reverse album. Keep an eye out for more material, and be sure to pick up your copy of Fashionably Late when it drops on June 18th.
Overall Score: 8.5/10
