Falling In Reverse guitarist Jacky Vincent has amicably left the band in order to focus on his solo career. Vincent played on all three of the band’s full length efforts: The Drug in Me Is You (2011), Fashionably Late (2013) and Just Like You (2015).
An official statement from the band, revealed exclusively to Alternative Press, 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.
Radke didn’t comment on who would be taking his place other than saying he will be soon introducing a great new shredder in the lead guitar position. Fans will need to come to the upcoming shows to meet this new mystery man on The Supervillains Tour w/ Attila, Metro Station plus Assuming We Survive and The Christmas Vacation Tour w/ Atreyu, From Ashes To New plus Assuming We Survive.
