Ronnie Radke Rising in Falling in Reverse’s ‘Losing My Life’ Video
Where has Ronnie Radke been? When we last heard from the Falling in Reverse singer, he and his band were issuing the "Losing My Mind" single, but apparently he's lost quite a bit of time as well if you're checking out the new video for the follow-up track, "Losing My Life."
The clip finds Radke hooked up to wires in a laboratory, while inside his mind he remains active, getting ready to square off against the reflection of himself. The Ethan Lader-clip finds a young woman keeping watch over the lifeless body of Radke, attempting to bring him out of his comatose state with her computer. It's an interesting clip with Radke's grip on reality being challenged as he attempts to regain his life once and for all.
"'Losing My Life' is the continuation of where 'Losing My Mind' ended," says Radke. "[It's] the dichotomies and ironic parallels between self-reflection and the self-destructive nature that we as humans face on a daily basis in modern times. Whether it be constant judgments from our peers, not being good enough, to not knowing who to trust, I've come to the realization that we are all the same at our core. Yet, ironically, we project our fears in the form of hate onto each other."
He continues, "Bouncing between dimensions, as the video portrays, there are two of me that are polar opposites of each other: one trying to prove to the world he is good enough, and the other trying to stop him from it. He ultimately kills his 'reflection' — the mirrored entity negating his progress by inter-dimensional time travel— only to find that the other version of 'him' he kills comes back to life, regenerating the feelings again. It's my analogy of the cyclical battle we all face on a day to day basis. However, this underlying message can be translated in many different ways. It's all in the eyes and ears of the beholder."
Like its predecessor, "Losing My Life" is being released independently. If you like what you hear, the track is available via the platform of your choosing here. The video leaves things on a bit of a cliffhanger, so it would not be a surprise to see a follow-up coming down the road.
Falling in Reverse are currently on the road, playing a number of dates on the Vans Warped Tour this summer. To see their schedule, head here.
