Derek Jones, the band’s original guitarist, passed away at 35. Falling in Reverse played post-hardcore and punk-pop music. Jones d!ed on April 21, 2020, and his de@th was revealed on social media by his bandmate Ronnie Radke. His cause of de@th was eventually reported in Ronnie Radke’s book “I Can Explain” as a subdural hematoma.
Ronnie Radke, Jones’ bandmate, tweeted a confirmation of the information. The vocalist penned the following about the electric guitarist: “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.”
“I shall always weave your essence into the songs I compose. Derek Jones, please go in peace. My heart is shattered. Jones was born in Lake Forest, California, on June 5, 1984. He learned to play the violin, saxophone and guitar as a child.
In an interview with Alternative Press, he remembered that as a youngster, punk music and political punk rock “heavily affected” him and that he “always looked up to AFI and Swedish metal bands like At the Gates and Soilwork.”
Jones joined the post-hardcore band A Smile from the Trenches in 2007, and in the initial iteration of Falling In Reverse, he teamed up with Radke. Until 2010, when he formally departed A Smile from the Trenches, he was a part of both bands.

The Drug in Me is You, the debut album from Falling In Reverse, featured Jones and lead guitarist Jacky Vincent. Jones, the only band member outside Radke to appear on every studio record, would alternate between rhythm and lead during his time with Falling In Reverse.
Music has always felt organic to Jones, according to Alternative Press. “It makes me happy than anything else I’ve tried out there, and it made me feel good about myself.” The Drug in Me is Reimagined, a piano rendition of the title track from the group’s debut was the group’s most recent single to be released in 2020.
