SPIRITBOX Deletes All Social Media Posts About Their Tour With FALLING IN REVERSE Following Fan Outcry
Several musicians, including SPIRITBOX, have recently received criticism from their followers. This backlash came after they agreed to participate in the summer tour with FALLING IN REVERSE.
Other bands like ICE NINE KILLS and UNDEROATH, who are also supporting the tour, have also faced similar negative reactions on social media. The criticism is mainly directed towards Ronnie Radke, the lead singer of FALLING IN REVERSE, due to his past controversial behavior. Additionally, some fans also expressed concerns about CROWN THE EMPIRE‘s involvement in the tour.
Last year, CROWD THE EMPIRE‘s guitarist/vocalist Brandon Hoover faced public accusations of domestic violence. The band and Hoover both released statements denying the allegations last month.
Recently, Radke publicly supported CROWN THE EMPIRE and Hoover by providing evidence to refute the allegations. As a gesture of support, Radke invited CROWN THE EMPIRE to join FALLING IN REVERSE‘s summer headlining tour.
However, there was some scrutiny over the inclusion of SPIRITBOX in the lineup, with concerns raised over their vocalist Courtney LaPlante‘s past comments about accountability and consent in the music scene.
Although there has been no official statement confirming SPIRITBOX‘s withdrawal from the tour, it is important to mention that the band has deleted all social media posts announcing their participation in the FALLING IN REVERSE tour. Additionally, the official website of SPIRITBOX does not currently list the tour dates.
