Falling in Reverse Completely Reimagine ‘The Drug in Me Is You': Listen
Falling in Reverse have fully reimagined the title track of their most popular album, 2011's The Drug in Me Is You.
It's fittingly titled "The Drug in Me Is Reimagined," and it completely eschews the pop-punk leanings of the original. Instead, it's a melodramatic ballad that ultimately erupts in a loud crescendo.
A music video accompanies the song — watch it down toward the bottom of this post. It's the first new material from Falling in Reverse since the similarly standalone single "Popular Monster" emerged late last year. This time around, however, frontman Ronnie Radke isn't attempting to appeal to the uninitiated.
"I wanted to give the fans something special," Radke said about the retooled tune. "This song was not made with the hope of gaining new fans — this was made specifically for the fans that have been here from the beginning. I wanted to strip down the music to show you how raw the lyrics actually are."
The single's release dovetails with the band's current tour, dubbed "The Drug in Me Is Gold Tour." The trek is now covering the U.S. with Escape the Fate and The Word Alive in tow. The tour's name celebrates the fact that Falling in Reverse's The Drug in Me Is You album was certified Gold by the RIAA last year.
A message from the band alonsgide the new music video on YouTube notes that Falling in Reverse are currently performing "The Drug in Me Is Reimagined" on tour. Get concert tickets and more information here.
