Papa Roach
Spending over 10 years as an alternative rock force, Papa Roach have returned in 2009 revitalized and ready to bring their infectious anthems to scores of fans around the world. Boasting a wealth of growth and bravado, their fifth studio album, “Metamorphosis,” is out today, March 24th via DGC/Interscope Records. Remaining true to their LA roots, Metamorphosis was written at the legendary Paramour Mansion and recorded at NRG Recording Studios. The album was co-produced by Jay Baumgardener (311, Evanescence, Incubus) and the band, with James Michael (Motley Crue, Sixx:A.M.) picking up additional co-production credits on five of the tracks. Metamorphosis secures the bands’ legacy in modern rock, showcasing their songwriting growth and maturity over the last decade.

The first single from “Metamorphosis,” “Lifeline” hit radio in January and was the most added song at Rock radio in its first week. Only 8 weeks in, the track has hit #1 at Active Rock and exhibits serious staying power. The band performed the song on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on March 6th. “Lifeline” is one of the fastest growing songs at active, alternative and mainstream rock and is available online at iTunes, various digital outlets and at Hot Topic stores on an exclusive two-song CD single. Papa Roach recently shot the official video for the song with director Chris Sims (Queens of the Stone Age, Jimmy Eat World), which was immediately premiered on, and added at MTV2, MTVu, Fuse, and Music Choice. The video underscores the social messages prevalent throughout the track and the album. Papa Roach will be hitting the road with Nickleback for a full US tour in July, as well as trekking through Europe in June for their first headlining tour in over 2 years.

As a thank you to their most loyal fans, anyone purchasing Metamorphosis as a CD or iTunes digital album will be granted access to the “Backstage Pass” section of the bands site, which will feature exclusive video greetings from the band and more, and will be regularly updated. The URL is (those that purchased the CD must have it in their CD-drive to access content).
