Last week, Spiritbox made headlines when they dropped off their scheduled tour dates with Falling in Reverse. The news came a few days after the band deleted any and all mention of the tour off of their social media after facing backlash from fans over touring with one of rock’s more polarizing artists in the genre, Ronnie Radke. After the announcement, Radke oddly remained quiet on the band’s exit from the tour, but did offer a response to a fan on Twitter about the situation on Monday (March 20).
Falling in Reverse had previously announced dates with Ice Nine Kills and a variety of other acts also taking part in segments of the tour. Among those was Spiritbox, who had signed on for six shows, but after fans expressed their displeasure with the group touring alongside Falling in Reverse, the band issued a brief statement that read, “We have withdrawn from the 6 shows we were scheduled to perform on the Popular Monstour.”
In the aftermath, Falling in Reverse moved quickly to fill the spot, with Our Last Night added to the lineup as revealed earlier this morning (March 20).

As for Radke, he did not comment on Spiritbox after they dropped out. Then, when a fan noted on Twitter, “I’m sure people assumed you were gonna talk trash about them for dropping off the tour. It ruins things for certain people because they wanted drama so bad,” the Falling in Reverse singer responded, “Could never talk trash, Courtney and rest of them are so sweet, I feel sorry for them as some of their fans are awful.”
