Back in October, Falling in Reverse frontman Ronnie Radke started a war of words with Sebastian Bach and SiriusXM presenter Eddie Trunk, following the latter's comments over his band's use of laptops during shows.

Radke's band were prevented from performing at Illinois’ WIIL Rock Fest on September 24 after some of their computer hardware went missing. 

Trunk criticised the band for their use of backing tracks and dragged Bach into the debate and things escalated quickly.

Now the dust has settled, Radke has chosen his band's lavish, Marvel-style promo for the single Watch The World Burn to have another dig at the former Skid Row vocalist. 

The impressive promo was directed by Ukrainian filmmaker Jensen Noen, who has previously worked with the band on their videos for Voices in My Head, Zombified, I'm Not A Vampire (Revamped), The Drug in Me is Reimagined and Popular Monster.

In the promo, Radke stars as a tormented villain who wreaks havoc on a city, and during the melee, a laptop falls from the sky and knocks a big-haired 80s rocker to the ground. 

We await Bach's reaction.
