(UK) The unstoppable Papa Roach have announced that they will be playing a full UK tour next year. Front man Jacoby Shaddix, guitarist Jerry Horton, bassist Tobin Esperance and drummer Tony Palermo return for a headline tour for the first time in 2 years in March 2015. Shaddix said “We are super stoked to get back to do a headlining show for the fans in the UK and we’ve got tricks up our sleeve for this tour so be ready, it’s gonna be off the chain!”
Tickets go on sale at 9am Friday 28th November. For pre-sale information click here.
The band returned briefly to the UK this year to make their first Reading Festival appearance for 13 years and it was like they’d never been away. Metal Hammer were prompted to note that ‘live they are masters at rabble-rousing, party starting fun’. Papa Roach’s brand of melodic rock has played a big part in shaping the newly resurgent nu metal scene, and January 2015 sees the 15th anniversary of their breakthrough album ‘Infest’ featuring the anthem ‘Last Resort’. The band will also be releasing their 8th album ‘F.E.A.R (Face Everything And Rise)’ on January 26th 2015. ‘F.E.A.R.’ signifies a new dawn for Papa Roach, Shaddix says “I hope people walk away believing they can do anything.”
