Falling In Reverse Premiere “I’m Not A Vampire (Revamped)” Music Video

Falling In Reverse have premiered a music video for a new “revamped” version of “I’m Not A Vampire.” You can check that out below. The original version of the song is from the band’s 2011 album “The Drug In Me Is You.”

Ronnie Radke commented:

“‘I’m Not a Vampire (Revamped)’ was over 10 years in the making. I wrote the original song, while sitting inside a maximum security prison, about drug addiction. I always believed songs such as this one had more to offer than its original form, so I wanted to give fans a new perspective and redefine who I am when it comes to expressing myself and being creative.”

In other news, Falling In Reverse have also announced a two-part virtual event called “Live From The Unknown.” The livestreams will both feature unique sets and tickets for them can be found at firmerch.com. Here’s the dates:

April 16: Part 1 – 6 p.m. PST/9 p.m. EST
April 30: Part 2 – 6 p.m. PST/9 p.m. EST

Radke said the following about the upcoming shows:

“‘Live From The Unknown’ is a two-part event I have created that has never been done. It’s two shows on separate nights with added elements that you just have to see to understand. Me trying to explain it now would ruin the live experience and also wouldn’t do it justice. Make sure you grab your tickets cause it probably will never happen like this again!”

“‘Popular Monster’ is the voice inside my head, hoping you will listen. It’s the story of a hero that’s been falsely accused and torn down by society. It shows what happens when you get pushed too far. You become exactly what they say you are, exactly what they want you to be — a monster.”
