Santa Monica, California, June 16, 2004 - Over the past 10 years, Papa Roach went from playing back alley clubs to major arenas & stadiums. Now the DreamWorks/Geffen quartet returns to its smoky, smelly, noisy roots with a U.S. summer club tour, kicking off July 6th in Detroit and winding up on August 6th in Santa Cruz. Papa Roach's new CD "Getting Away With Murder" arrives in stores this September. Said Papa Roach lead singer Jacoby Shaddix, "Any band will tell you, nothing's better than being right in the face of the fans & having them in yours. It is so great for us to be going back to the clubs & re-experiencing that energy you only get in close quarters." Formed in Northern California in 1993, Papa Roach is comprised of Shaddix, Jerry Horton, Dave Buckner, & Tobin Esperance. They made their recording debut with the 1994 EP "Potatoes For Christmas" followed by their full-length debut "Old Friends From Young Years" & two more indie EP's. When they released their second full-length CD "Infest" in 2000, all hell broke loose. The album went triple-platinum, powered by the mega-hit single "Last Resort." With their 2002 CD, "lovehatetragedy," the band scored a #2 debut on the Billboard Top 200 & a coveted slot on Eminem's Anger Management Tour.
