Papa Roach Announce Another Tour & Reveal New Video with Skylar Grey

Following the release of their ninth studio album ‘Crooked Teeth’ last month, Papa Roach announced that they will be touring the UK for the first time in two years in October.  Papa Roach’s last visit to the UK saw them celebrate the 15th anniversary of their generation defining album ‘Infest’ by playing it in full to a crammed London’s Roundhouse.
The band seems to be super excited about coming back as Jacob Shaddix said: “We’re really excited to get back to the UK after such a long time.  Everytime we play the audience keeps getting bigger and more passionate each time.  We can’t wait to play this new music live.”

The tour will start in Birmingham on October 5th and ends in Manchester on October 11th.  See all tour dates below. The support act(s) will be announced soon. Tickets go on sale at 10 am Friday 16th June here:  www.paparoach.com 
 
Papa Roach have also just released an official video for ‘Periscope’, the moody ballad featuring singer/songwriter Skylar Grey. The video was directed by award-winning firm The Uprising Creative (Rihanna, Justin Timberlake, Big Sean, Lil Jon) who cited the inspiration for the video was “to create a moody, different look for the band using a stylistic light exploration”.

“Periscope” is inspired by the realization that sometimes within a relationship you might not be worth being loved or that the other person may not be worth your love, and the struggle within that— how much effort it takes to make things work,” says Papa Roach lead vocalist Jacoby Shaddix.  “One part that I think is really meaningful in the video is when Skylar and I are in the shot at the same time, yet we’re not engaging with each other.  It represents the ‘disconnection’ with two people, which is very much what the lyrics describe.” Grey adds, “You are loving someone from a distance, not able to reach them.”
