Why Escape the Fate is Touring with Their Formerly Estranged Ex-Vocalist Ronnie Radke

Starting soon and continuing for a little more than a month, Escape the Fate will perform with Falling in Reverse, the band that features Ronnie Radke. Which is surprising, given that the singer was unceremoniously dumped from Escape the Fate back in 2008. Robert Ortiz, drummer for Escape the Fate, sounds pretty convincing as he explains the concept of his band's upcoming tour.

"I think what we are doing is possibly a first," Ortiz says. "It's a tour that I have wanted to do for a long time. I've wanted to play with Ronnie. I wanted to play those songs for the fans. It is a dream of mine. 2016 is the 10-year anniversary of our first album. I've had these ideas in my head how we would go about this. That's why I say we are making history."
