Sebastian Bach (Ex-Skid Row) And Ronnie Radke (Falling In Reverse) Feud Over Backing Tracks

Ex-Skid Row singer Sebastian Bach and Falling In Reverse vocalist Ronnie Radke have been feuding on Twitter. The war of words started after SiriusXM’s Eddie Trunk called out Falling In Reverse for cancelling their set at the WIIL Rock festival in Grayslake, IL due to missing laptops.

Trunk initially said the following:

“This is astonishing .. First I heard about this I thought it was a joke to wind me up. How much longer are fans, promoters , media, just going to accept the epidemic of live rock shows… not really being live? Paying your hard earned money to see a band play “live” that’s not truly live?! And there are countless bands in 2022 that hone their craft and play live! Tons! New and old !! Including the one that subbed for them in their slot, JACKYL . No laptop needed there! This is just unreal. But at least I give them credit for being honest. Wow. I am closer than ever to launching my own band. And I can’t sing or play a note .. simply amazing.”

Radke then fired back with the following:

“@EddieTrunk so you wanna talk hella Shit about laptops but go watch kiss lip sync, Steven Tyler plays the piano then half way through the song he stands on top of piano while it sill plays yet here we are acting like they all don’t use tracks you fucking idiot. Literal moron”

He also claimed Bach was using tracks in a video he shared on Twitter:

From there, the two have been having a back and forth:

Bach then challenged Radke in a since deleted tweet:

“It’s always so much fun to show someone what the world was like before the internet existed get f****** ready. Virtual reality is so much fun until you have to deal with actual reality. In your face. Can’t wait to meet you in person. Name the time and the place and I will introduce you to rock and roll in person man”

Radke fired back with:

Notably, Mötley Crüe’s Nikki Sixx seemingly defended Radke. He said the following:

“Keep beating that fake bullshit drum. Sounds so ‘Get Off My Lawn’. God forbid if some artists use technology as a creative tool on albums and in live settings. I get it. Just open your mind and stop fighting reality. Makes you sound outta touch and I like that you fly the rock flag.”

Radke added:

Crown The Empire Dropped From “Trinity Of Terror” Dates Amid Abuse Allegations, We Came As Romans To Replace Them

Tour Dates:

08/30 Denver, CO – Red Rocks Amphitheatre (feat. In This Moment) (no We Came As Romans)
09/03 Omaha, NE – Liberty First Credit Union Arena
09/04 Pryor, OK – Rocklahoma (no We Came As Romans)

09/18 Cincinnati, OH – ICON at The Andrew J Brady Music Center

Crown The Empire’s removal from the trek is seemingly related to abuse allegations that were leveled against guitarist Brandon Hoover. The alleged victim said the following about those accusations:

“When Brandon stood over me LAUGHING and screaming over and over that I was a cheating slut and he was done with me while I sobbed in the fetal position trying to protect myself because he had already thrown me across the room into a dresser and left me covered in bruises… he had already begun replacing me with the girl he is now dating. He gaslit me entirely for feeling confused and upset when he took me out of his music video in favor of casting “some random girl” who acted weird around me on set until I had to leave for work… it wasn’t until months after our breakup I finally realised who she was and how she was completely part of his life so quickly after we separated. After that incident spanned an entire night, he claimed to black out whilst still conscious and couldn’t remember what he did to me. He begged me to forgive him and promised to quit drinking and get into therapy. I knew I wasn’t safe but I loved him so much I tried to let him change. Two weeks later he was drinking again on tour, lying about it every day to me and telling me how much he was resenting me for being the reason he had to stop (he hadn’t stopped). When he finally admitted it a day before I was to fly out to be with him on tour he expected me to cave like I always had, forgive and accept his violation of my boundaries and “trust” him, and put myself in further danger. Saying I couldn’t take it anymore was the hardest thing I ever had to do because my love was real, the person I felt it for just didn’t exist. He was simply a figment of the manipulation he created to keep me around while I gave over everything I had to him for a year. I truly don’t know how to escape this nightmare. I will never be the same, and he is doing everything in his power to silence me. I’ll probably wake up tomorrow and this account will be gone too. Please follow me on TikTok and Twitter – @bambimaryjane and @downlowbambi He wants me to disappear and I’m starting to feel like I should. Share this if you’re able.”
