M.Shadows defends Avenged Sevenfold’s decision to play with Falling In Reverse


Avenged Sevenfold singer M.Shadows recently spoke about the choice to take Falling In Reverse on tour in The Punk Rock MBA podcast.

He had previously defended Falling In Reverse’s Ronnie Radke over online controversies. Now, despite the criticism, M.Shadows confirmed that they will stand by their decision to take Falling In Reverse on tour, that there will be more dates with them in the future, and that they will not be swayed by public opinion.

M.Shadows said: “The thing with Ronnie is… the guy is allowed to have an opinion. And his opinion ruffles feathers and then he digs his heels in and goes hard on some of these people that are attacking him. I’ve looked at all of his accusations. There’s been no proof on these things. He did time for the one thing he did do. And it’s almost like this society where you can’t come back out and have any sort of career or anything happen, because you don’t like that this guy is a firecracker and he’s gonna hit back at you.”

He continued: “We put Ronnie on these shows, we have more shows we’re going to do with him. If you don’t like him, don’t show up – or show up later. But we’re keeping them on the shows. And he can be his own person, and we’ll be our own people. Even though we might not agree on everything, we do believe in someone being able to speak their mind.”
