Falling in Reverse is going to be down a member during their upcoming set of tours. On Friday (Oct. 30), longtime guitarist Jacky Vincent revealed that he had left the group after being with them since the inception of the group. In a statement released exclusively to Alternative Press, the guitarist as well as Falling in Reverse frontman Ronnie Radke, announced that the “split is amicable” and that all “parties are on good terms.” The press release can be read below.

“Falling In Reverse has announced that Jacky Vincent is leaving the band to concentrate on his solo career.

Ronnie Radke said, “I remember the first time I met Jacky, I walked out of prison and he was waiting there so stoked. Hands down one of the greatest guitar players to ever live. And one of the most genuine people I’ve ever met. I wish him nothing but the best. Love you Jacky.”

Jacky Vincent said, “I can’t thank Ronnie, Derek and Ryan enough for the last 5 years. I will most likely never laugh as hard again in my life. I feel proud to have played with such brilliant musicians and I will miss touring with them enormously. I am forever grateful to have experienced what I did in Falling in Reverse and I feel very fortunate to have lived what I dreamt of doing for so many years. To the fans, I loved meeting you all. I kept as many as your gifts and letters as I could and they all mean so much. Thank you for everything.”

The split is amicable and all parties are on good terms.

All upcoming shows will go on as currently scheduled.”

At the time of the press release, there was no mention of who will be replacing Vincent. Instead, it appears that Radke and company already have someone and will be revealing their identity soon. Fans of the band will be introduced to the new member during Falling in Reverse’s upcoming “Supervillains Tour” with Attila, Metro Station, and Assuming We Survive.
