Singer Jacoby Shaddix and drummer Dave Buckner formed Papa Roach in Vacavile, California, in January 1993 along with trombonist Ben Luther and guitarist Will James. Luther left and Guitarist Jerry Horton joined in March and the band began playing gigs. They released an EP titled Potatoes for Christmas in 1994 and a demo titled Caca Bonita in 1995. Tobin Esperance joined on bass in 1996 so set the band lineup for the next 10+ years. In 1997 they released their first LP, Old Friends from Young Years. Although the album wasn’t commercially successful the band was able to tour with some big name acts of the day. Another pair of EP’s , 5 Tracks Deep in 1998 and Let ‘Em Know in 1999, helped them get get a look from Warner Music Group. After recording another demo, Warner Music decided against signing the band and DreamWorks Records came in with a contract offer. This led to their major-label debut Infest, culled from songs from their previous EP’s along with some new song. Infest was a huge success for the band, eventually going triple platinum behind the #1 Alternative Rock hit “Last Resort.” They joined the Vans Warped Tour as well as the Anger Management Tour with Limp Bizkit and Eminem. In 2001, they joined the main stage of the prestigious Ozzfest tour for both the US and UK legs of the tour. Lovehatetragedy followed in 2002 and debuted at #2. The album went gold behind the #5 Alternative Rock hit “She Loves Me Not.” Getting Away with Murder followed in 2003 and was their first album to not feature any rapping. That album went platinum behind “Scars,” at #15 their highest charting song on the Billboard Hot 100. Another EP followed in 2004 and their first live album Papa Roach: Live & Murderous in Chicago in 2005. 2006’s The Paramour Sessions opened at #16 on the charts and behind “…To Be Loved” and the #2 Mainstream Rock hit “Forever.” In 2007, Tony Palermo took over on drums for Buckner as he battled addiction. Buckner left for good in 2008. The band continued to tour during this time before going back in the studio for 2009’s Metamorphosis. The album would be their first top 10 album since 2002 and “Lifeline” reached #1 on the Mainstream Rock chart. Time for Annihilation, featuring 9 live songs and 4 new songs, and a greatest hits album would both follow in 2010. The Connection followed in 2012 and contained the Mainstream Rock hits “Still Swingin’” and “Where Did the Angels Go?”. The band are touring now in support of F.E.A.R, which was just released in January and contains the #1 Mainstream Rock hit “Face Everything and Rise.” They will be making their first appearance at Moondance Jam and will play the 9pm Thursday slot ahead of headliners Nickelback.

My Take
I saw Papa Roach live way back in 2000 along with Buckcherry and P.O.D. at a local radio rock show. They were very loud and I remember their hit song “Last Resort” sent the crowd into a frenzy. I have respected their career as they have been able to have a handful of softer songs reach the Hot 100 chart but they have never abandoned their hard and heavy sound that kicked off their career. They also have toured relentlessly it seems and have never really disappeared from the music scene like many bands seem to do. They will be as loud as any band to ever play the Moondance Jam stage with songs like “Face Everything and Rise” and the aforementioned “Last Resort” but they will also bring it down a bit on songs like “Scars” and “Forever.” I encourage everyone to come check out their set on Jam Thursday and pay respects to one of the hardest-working bands in rock music today.
The music brought me to Moondance Jam. The people bring me back.

Back in 2009 I took my son and his two cousins to Mankato for a show with Papa Roach(had never heard of them), Buck Cherry, Avenged Seven Fold and I think also Saving Abel. All the bands put on great shows and Papa Roach rocked out and easily held their own. They are definitely a band worth checking out.
Time and place are everything.
