Papa Roach have premiered a new video for their song “American Dreams.” This song is from their latest album “Crooked Teeth.”
Jacoby Shaddix commented:
“America is struggling, America is divided, America is hurting right now. We’re at a fever pitch of confusion, smoke and mirrors, blatant lies. The American Dream is on the chopping block.”
“My father is a Vietnam veteran. Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and the disintegration of the American family are things I’ve dealt with personally. I know other people relate.”
Papa Roach have cancelled some upcoming shows so Jacoby Shaddix could recover from vocal cord surgery. The following dates have been affected:
08/11 – Roseburg OR. Douglas County Fair
08/19 – Carterville, IL. Moonstock 2017
08/25 – Palmer, AK. Alaska State Fair
The band commented:
“This week, Jacoby was advised by his doctors and vocal specialists to have surgery on his vocal cord and to give his vocal muscles enough time to heal before Papa Roach resumes their current touring schedule in September. Jacoby had a similar surgery about five years ago. Fortunately, the diagnosis was made early and full recovery should be soon.
“The vocal cords are a muscle and like any athlete, muscles can get injured in the course of their profession and we appreciate your understanding this diagnosis.
“We wish to thank all of our fans in advance for your prayers and good wishes. We know some of you had travel plans and we will return next year to perform for you.”

Papa Roach have premiered a new video for their song “Periscope” feat. Skylar Grey. This song is from their latest album “Crooked Teeth,” which is available now.
Jacoby Shaddix commented:
“‘Periscope‘ is inspired by the realization that sometimes within a relationship you might not be worth being loved or that the other person may not be worth your love, and the struggle within that— how much effort it takes to make things work. One part that I think is really meaningful in the video is when Skylar and I are in the shot at the same time, yet we’re not engaging with each other. It represents the ‘disconnection’ with two people, which is very much what the lyrics describe.”
