NEW YORK, NY December 4, 2017 – Fresh off their Sold Out European tour, Papa Roach are coming back stateside, hitting the road in support of their critically acclaimed ninth studio effort, Crooked Teeth. The tour kicks off on April 5th in Raleigh, NC and runs through May 13th, wrapping up in Corpus Christi, TX. The tour will be hitting twenty five cities featuring special guests and 2018 Grammy Award Nominee Nothing More, with support from Escape the Fate.
Papa Roach’s latest album Crooked Teeth (out now on Eleven Seven Music) debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Top Hard Rock Albums Chart, #4 on the Top Rock Albums Chart, and Top 20 in the Top 200 earlier this year. The album has accumulated over 100 million global streams on Spotify since May 2017, driven by the lead single “Help” – which firmly held the #1 spot at Rock Radio for 6 straight weeks – plus additional album hits including “Periscope” feat. Skylar Grey, “American Dreams”, and new single “Born For Greatness“.
Today, Papa Roach share an epic live video for “Born For Greatness“, shot in multiple cities throughout their European tour.
Nothing More will be joining the tour as direct support. The San Antonio-based rock act has just been nominated for three Grammy awards, including Best Rock Song and Best Rock Performance for their lead single, “Go To War“, as well as Best Rock Album for The Stories We Tell Ourselves (out now on Better Noise Records), which debuted at #3 on the Billboard Rock Albums chart. The brand new lyric video for their upcoming single “Do You Really Want It” is out today and can be found here.
Rounding out the lineup is Escape the Fate who will be releasing their fifth studio album I Am Human on February 16th, 2018 on Better Noise Records. The band has released a lyric video for the track “Do You Love Me?”, which can be viewed here. I Am Human is now available for pre-order. 
VIP packages are on sale tomorrow, December 4th. For more information on Papa Roach’s VIP packages, click here. Nothing More’s VIP packages are available here. General on-sale will begin on Friday December 8th at 10 AM local time.

About The Author Kris Engelhart

I am a small business owner, freelance writer, and part-time piano instructor in Charlotte, NC. My musical career started at the age of five when I was forced into taking piano lessons. I played flute in the school band and added the guitar as a young teen. There is nothing I would rather do than be at a live show. My first concert was Shaun Cassidy at the Memorial Auditorium in Buffalo in 1978.
My top five live shows ever are:

1. Bruce Springsteen and the E-Street Band – Memorial Auditorium, Buffalo, NY 1984- They played for 3 ½ hours and it was awesome.

2. Carolina Rebellion- Metrolina Expo Grounds, Charlotte, NC, May, 2011 – The first ever Carolina Rebellion featured over 15 bands with Avenged Sevenfold headlining. Non-stop music for over 12 hours.
3. Chevelle- Food Lion Speed Street, Charlotte, NC, May, 2008 – The first time I ever saw Chevelle live and I was hooked!
4. Skillet with Red- Bojangle’s Coliseum, Charlotte, NC, April, 2010 – Skillet is one of my favorite bands and they totally kick it live.
5. 106.5 The End’s Weenie Roast #9- Verizon Wireless Amiptheater, Charlotte, NC , October, 2003- Featured Staind, Shinedown, Three Days Grace.
