Papa Roach Plan To Celebrate 20th Anniversary Of “Infest” With Live Shows & More


Papa Roach will celebrate the 20th anniversary of their 3x multi-platinum selling 2000 album “Infest” later this year. The band’s frontman Jacoby Shaddix shared some words with Linea Rock earlier this week in regards to what the band have up their sleeves for the anniversary:

“We’ve done some really cool things in the studio around some of the previous recordings, and we have some awesome stuff to release here throughout the year, so we’re going to celebrate this album for sure — one hundred percent, definitely.

And then also we have some announcements around some live shows that we’re gonna do to celebrate the album as well. So I can’t let the cat out of the bag completely, but yeah, we’ve gotta celebrate it. That’s a cult classic and a best-seller right there.”

The conversation also saw Shaddix address the continued popularity of “Infest” mega-hit, “Last Resort“:

“That’s our classic. That thing, it’s given us such a relevance, even in pop culture. People are making memes — ‘Cut my life into pizza.’ I love that. ‘Cause now I don’t take it all too seriously, because it’s embedded itself into pop culture, but then also the reality is that it’s spoken to a lot of people’s hearts that have been in that darkness, and going, ‘Hey, man, there’s some hope. You can come out of this. You don’t have to stay in there.'”
