An official statement about the album, Fashionably Late, has now been released. Many people, upon hearing “Alone,” first commented on the rap and electronic approach FIR has taken. Vocalist Ronnie Radke expains:
“My dad raised me on metal, but my first serious love was hip-hop. When I heard Dr. Dre’s The Chronic, that’s when I fell in love. I didn’t know what the hell they were talking about, the beats were intertwined, and it came inside of me and took me over.
When we added hip-hop elements I was thinking, ‘Should I do this? This sounds crazy! Are people going to like this?’ Now I’ve never been so proud of something. The final product, Fashionably Late, is the best work I’ve ever done.”
