Derek Jones of the post-hardcore outfit Falling In Reverse, has died at the age of 35.
News of his death was made known through an Instagram post from bandmate Ronnie Radke who wrote: “I’ll never forget when you picked me up from jail in your old tour van to start Falling In Reverse.”
“Your spirit will be interwoven through the music I write forever. Rest In Peace Derek Jones. My heart is broken.” See the post below:
Jones joined Falling In Reverse in 2010 – after Radke first started the group in 2008, while serving a prison term. Along with Radke, Jones is considered one of the band’s original members, and has played guitar on all four studio albums released by Epitaph Records.
Falling In Reverse’s last tour with Jones was this year’s “The Drug In Me Is Gold” tour, which celebrated the band’s 2011 album, The Drug In Me Is You receiving its Gold certification. The 18-date tour was accompanied by Escape the Fate and The Word Alive.
