“Fashionably Late,” the latest album from rockers Falling In Reverse, often sounds like an iPod on shuffle, such is the range of different styles and sounds cycled though from one track to the next.
At their core, the band is akin to a screamo Motley Cure, crunching hair metal flamboyance in with metallic emo.
But a pronounced hip-hop influence, heightened pop hooks and even a touch of country give “Fashionably Late,” a manic, all-over-the-place feel, the hard rock equivalent of an overstuffed suitcase.
As such, it’s probably for the best that the band is giving its fans something of a breather on its latest “unplugged and uncensored” tour, where their songs will be peeled back to their acoustic core. The tour stops Saturday at the Hard Rock Live on The Strip.
A ticket to the show also gets you a meet and greet with the band, so you can show up and ask frontman Ronnie Radke what he’s been listening to lately.
Whatever it is, you’ll most likely hear it on the band’s next record.
