Dying Is Your Latest Fashion is the debut studio album by American rock band Escape the Fate, released on September 26, 2006 on Epitaph Records. The origin of the album's title comes from a line in the chorus of the song "Situations". It contains nine new songs plus two songs taken from There's No Sympathy for the Dead. "Not Good Enough for Truth In Cliché" and "Situations" were released as singles, with music videos being made for both. It is the only full-length album and second release with original singer and founding member Ronnie Radke. Ronnie would later be incarcerated and kicked out of the band. He is currently the frontman for Falling in Reverse. It is also the last release to feature rhythm guitarist Omar Espinosa and keyboardist/vocalist Carson Allen (as he departed before the release of the album and was thus uncredited). As of 2014 drummer Robert Ortiz is the only member still with the band as both Monte Money and Max Green had recently left the band in 2013 and 2014 respectively. Mandy Murders, who had in the past dated Ronnie Radke, modeled for the cover art.

Promotion and release[edit]

Escape the Fate released the song "Not Good Enough for Truth In Cliché" as the first single and later released the song "Situations" as the second single on November 20, 2007 on iTunes, which included "Situations", its video, and the B-side "Make Up" which was previously only available on the Japanese version of Dying Is Your Latest Fashion.

"The Webs We Weave" was supposed to be the band's third single on the album, but was never released due to Ronnie Radke's departure.

"Reverse This Curse" was never released as a single, but appeared in the video game Tony Hawk's Downhill Jam and on the Warped Tour 2007 Tour Compilation album.

Following the release of the album, Radke was put on probation for narcotics charges and later violated probation when he was involved in an altercation resulting in the death of 18-year-old Michael Cook. Radke plead guilty to battery charges and was sent to prison for two years, leading Escape the Fate to hire Craig Mabbitt as their temporary lead singer. He would later be made the permanent lead singer for the band and has been with them for the release of four subsequent studio albums.

For the 10th anniversary, Falling in Reverse played the album in its entirety.
