As the common denominator for some of the most successful rock tours and festivals worldwide in recent years, Papa Roach has been dubbed “this generation’s great live rock band” by fans and critics across the globe and has become known for their electrifying and explosive live shows.
|With their feet firmly planted in over 10 years of multi-format success, Papa Roach’sTime For Annihilation…On the Record and On the Road (Released August 31st via Eleven Seven Music) debuted as the #1 Independent Rock, #23 Top 200, #4 Hard Rock and #5 Alternative Album on Billboard’s charts. The New York Post proclaimed “Papa’s On Fire” and hailed Time For Annihilation…On The Record and On The Road as one of the “most appealing concept albums of the year.” 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. The album is a unique hybrid listening experience, which showcases live renditions of past hits as well as five new studio tracks produced by David Bendeth (Paramore, Breaking Benjamin, The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus).
With the release of this record, the band continued their long-term commitment to WhyHunger, raising funds and awareness for hunger and homelessness worldwide. The band included a hidden track on the record, a first in philanthropy, to encourage fans to text to donate as they do live in concert. In addition, the band visited the Los Angeles Mission (Los Angeles, CA) and the Yorkville Common Pantry (New York, NY) food banks as volunteers to celebrate their album release and continued partnership with WhyHunger.
