Falling in Reverse are going to be down a member this Summer, but before fans of the group can start getting upset about it, it’s only going to be temporary. Plus, FIR have begun their own personal “summer break.”
Today (June 9), it was announced that FIR drummer, Ryan Seaman, will be hitting the Vans Warped Tour this Summer, but not with his band. Instead, the sticksman is going to be playing drums for Matchbook Romance as they make their return to the touring circuit.
Seaman will begin his time as Matchbook Romance’s drummer on June 23 in Mesa, AZ at Quail Run Park and will conclude his trek alongside the Poughkeepsie band on July 8 in Virginia Beach at the Farm Bureau Live at Virginia Beach.
After the Virginia Beach date, Matchbook Romance drummer Aaron Stern will return to his place behind the drum kit on the traveling rock show.
In a statement, Seaman revealed that this was the best way for him to repay the band for what in a way led to the formation of Falling in Reverse (Seaman meeting FIR frontman Ronnie Radke).
“I actually met Ronnie on a tour that my old band did with Matchbook 10 years ago and who would have ever thought that one day Ronnie and I would be in a band together, all based on a night in Las Vegas at House of Blues. Matchbook needed a trustworthy friend to fill in, and I owe a lot to these guys.
And since Falling In Reverse have the summer off and was okay with me doing this, I feel like now is a better time than ever to help out people that first helped out me. I’m really pumped on seeing you all out there. Come say hi if you see me!”
Matchbook Romance are slated to play the complete Warped Tour while Falling in Reverse recently wrapped up their “Ronnie Radke’s Three Ring Circus Tour” last Friday (June 5).
