Falling in Reverse Drummer to Join Matchbook Romance on Warped Tour

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).

Aaron Gillespie to Drum for Paramore on Tour

Paramore-2013

News that Aaron Gillespie, former drummer for Underoath and frontman of The Almost  would be taking over the drumming duties during Paramore’s upcoming tour has slightly been exaggerated by social media. Paramore just confirmed that the sticksman would only be filling in during selected dates of the tour while in Europe.

The band’s live drummer, Miles McPherson had gotten seriously injured in a golf cart accident where he lost control of a golf cart, which flipped on top of him and dragged him by the face for approximately 20 feet. It’s only safe to assume that due to McPherson’s injuries, Gillespie will be on the tour for a little while.

Rumors began earlier today when Paramore posted on their Instagram a picture of a red trunk with Underoath written on it as well as what looks like bright yellow electric tape with Paramore written in black sharpie. This only led to the talk that someone form Underoath would be joining and eventually  they confirmed it would be Gillespie.
