The anthemic single arrives as Falling In Reverse gears up for their Live From the Unknown Tour with Wage War, Hawthorne Heights and Jeris Johnson.
Rock outfit Falling In Reverse have a pretty staunch, and hardly subtle, message on their latest single “Zombified”. Very anthemic in its feel, the horror themed track and video starts with “The monsters aren’t living under your bed / They are voices in your head,” laying out a narrative that should make listeners question how they receive their information and what it’s doing to our mindsets.
With lines like “Oh no they’ll never let go, / Of something you said 10 years ago / They’re cancelling you, / And they won’t stop till everybody’s / ZOMBIFIED” frontman Ronnie Radke minces exactly ZERO words.
The Jensen Noen-directed music video finds the band in a plethora of horror movie-esque tropes only the first of which are the post-apocalyptic zombie horde. “Zombified” is expected to appear on their upcoming EP, “Neon Zombie”, which will be released at some point this year (presumably). In addition, you can also pick up a Falling in Reverse “Zombified” shirt via the band’s merch store here.
The new song comes as Falling in Reverse are gearing up for their previously announced tour with Wage War, Hawthorne Heights and Jeris Johnson. The tour will begin Jan. 13 in Atlanta, Ga. and will run until Feb. 4 in Los Angeles. Wage War will not appear on the Jan. 26 date in Minneapolis, Minn.
Last fall, Falling in Reverse’s No. 1 single “Popular Monster” earned platinum status. It has been streamed over 145 million times and has emerged as one of the biggest anthems of this new decade.
