ABOUT PAPA ROACHAfter two years of work and nearly 10 months of building up excitement with fans, Papa Roach recently celebrated the release of their eleventh studio album EGO TRIP. An album that sprouted almost by mistake in the throes of a global lockdown, its seeds were planted when the quartet entered a COVID-secure mansion in Temecula, California in the summer of 2020. What started as an escape and an exercise in keeping the creative juices flowing, in a world that had completely ground to a halt, quickly grew into something bigger. Purposeful, provocative, and just the right side of the line between confident and cocky (“I really hope [the album title] stops a few people in their tracks” cackles front man Jacoby Shaddix), EGO TRIP is Papa Roach – completed by guitarist Jerry Horton, bassist Tobin Esperance and drummer Tony Palermo – at its boldest and most brilliant. Papa Roach are two-time GRAMMY-nominated, Platinum-selling leaders in Alternative Hard Rock music, who in 2020 celebrated the 20th Anniversary of their iconic album “INFEST”. 20 years into their career, the band continue to have global success. Visit / Follow / Subscribe:Instagram | Facebook | Twitter | YouTube | TikTok| Spotify And now in 2022, the band feel bigger and more relevant than ever. – Alternative Press Papa Roach are not only still with us, but they’re an infinitely more challenging, diverse and simply better band than the one that recorded breakthrough album Infest. New offering Ego Trip rips up any semblance of a rule book, rapping it up and rocking it out with the fervour of any of music’s bright young things. – Kerrang! As has been the case for 25 years now, the band’s style remains as eclectic as it is ambitious as they continuously find new ways to innovate and rein in fresh sounds. – Loudwire  it’s good to hear that Papa Roach aren’t interested in simply placating OG fans —they’re still in this for themselves – Revolver
