Rock berserkers and multi hit-makers Papa Roach have announced a special live chat with fans for a "major announcement" this Thursday, June 14th at 3pm PST. Frontman Jacoby Shaddix, guitarist Jerry Horton, bassist Tobin Esperance and drummer Tony Palermo will make the special announcement as well as interact and chat with Roach fans. For information on where to tune in, please visit www.facebook.com/paparoach. The announcement follows the band's ruthless canvassing of the globe in support of their highly acclaimed Time For Annihilation...On The Record and On The Road, which New York Post proclaimed "Papa's On Fire" and hailed as one of the "most appealing concept albums of the year."
Known for their electrifying and explosive live shows, Papa Roach have become the common denominator for some of the most successful rock tours in recent years and have critics worldwide hailing them as "the best live band." With their feet firmly planted in over 10 years of multi-format success, Papa Roach's Time For Annihilation...On the Record and On the Road (Eleven Seven Music, August 2010) debuted as the #1 Independent Rock, #23 Top 200, #4 Hard Rock and #5 Alternative Album on Billboard's charts. The album's lead single, "Kick in the Teeth" remained in the Top 10 at the active rock radio format for over 4-weeks straight, joining 8 additional Top 10 hits throughout the band's career with songs such as "Last Resort" and "Scars."
***Update: Papa Roach's reps have confirmed to The gauntlet that the band is not announcing they are breaking up. Sorry.
