Falling In Reverse 2013After years of battling in one of music’s biggest feuds in recent years, new age heavy rockers Falling In Reverse (top left) and Escape The Fate (middle right) are set to embark on a tour together in the new year. Lead vocalists Ronnie Radke (Falling In Reverse) and Craig Mabbitt (Escape The Fate) finally stopped butting heads, and shook hands. The bands collectively decided to hit the road together, appropriately calling it the Bury The Hatchet Tour. The historic run kicks off on January 15, 2014 in Los Angeles, CA and comes full-circle on February 14 in Pomona, CA with special guests Chelsea Grin and Survive This!.

Despite their history of bad blood, both bands seem to be very stoked about the tour. “There are surprises and specialEscape The Fate 2013 things happening on this tour that you’ll only find out about if you come – people can expect the unexpected,” said Falling In Reverse frontman Ronnie Radke.  “This tour will change the long-standing tension with Escape The Fate – we’re now friends and all is forgiven.” Escape The Fate vocalist Craig Mabbitt commented, “This tour means new beginnings and I couldn’t be happier to be doing it.  And, oh yeah, it’s gonna be fuckin wild!  Missing this tour would be equivalent to Santa putting coal in your stockings, and no one likes coal in their stocking.”
