Papa Roach Planning Special Shows To Celebrate 20th Anniversary Of “Infest”

Papa Roach are planning to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their 2000 album “Infest” this year. Frontman Jacoby Shaddix confirmed the news to Linea Rock, saying that the band will be playing some special shows and more.

Shaddix said the following:

“We’ve done some really cool things in the studio around some of the previous recordings, and we have some awesome stuff to release here throughout the year, so we’re going to celebrate this album for sure — one hundred percent, definitely.

And then also we have some announcements around some live shows that we’re gonna do to celebrate the album as well. So I can’t let the cat out of the bag completely, but yeah, we’ve gotta celebrate it. That’s a cult classic and a best-seller right there.”

Shaddix also went on to discuss the band’s hit song “Last Resort“

“That’s our classic. That thing, it’s given us such a relevance, even in pop culture. People are making memes — ‘Cut my life into pizza.’ I love that. ‘Cause now I don’t take it all too seriously, because it’s embedded itself into pop culture, but then also the reality is that it’s spoken to a lot of people’s hearts that have been in that darkness, and going, ‘Hey, man, there’s some hope. You can come out of this. You don’t have to stay in there.’”

The Juliana Theory To Celebrate 20th Anniversary Of “Emotion Is Dead” At Special Shows

The Juliana Theory have announced some special shows with Mae. The concerts will find The Juliana Theory celebrating the 20th anniversary of “Emotion Is Dead” and Mae celebrating the 15th anniversary of “The Everglow.” Here’s the dates:

06/13 Brooklyn, NY – Music Hall Of Williamsburg
06/27 Los Angeles, CA – The Roxy Theatre

The Juliana Theory‘s Brett Detar commented:

“20 years ago a little band of friends from a small town in Pennsylvania released an album we recorded on a shoestring budget in a converted garage. We were barely as old then as the record is now and some of us were younger than that but it changed all of our lives. Time moves so quickly but our connection to those magic-fill days of our youth is something that never really fades.

When Josh and I hit the road this past fall to play an acoustic tour we had an absolute blast reconnecting with each other, with these old songs, and especially with all of you who came out to sing along with us. That was the first real tour any version of the band had done in 14 years – but only a few months prior to that we genuinely didn’t know if we would ever play together again as a band.

Sometimes life has a way of taking the plans you make and laughing at them. Things that you have every intention of making happen sometimes fall apart in ways that are out of your control. I guess that’s a part of being human. But seeing so many of you come out to embrace the stripped down acoustic version of TJT warmed our hearts. Without fail, the number one question we got every night was “When will you play full band shows again?” Thank you for that – we listened.

So, for the 20th anniversary of Emotion Is Dead we will be playing the album in its entirety at a small number of shows, and to make it extra special we are teaming up with our friends in MAE who will be playing the 15th anniversary of their album The Everglow. Oh and don’t think we forgot, because like I said – we are listening to you all, we’ve partnered with our old friends at Tooth & Nail and Unoriginal Vinyl to finally give the album its long overdue second pressing on vinyl (and first as a double LP).

We will have a hand full of limited pressings with us at these shows and let me just say that they look gorgeous. We love ya and look forward to seeing you and thank you from the bottom of our hearts for still having a special place in yours for Emotion is Dead and a little band from Pennsylvania called Juliana Theory.
– xo, Brett“
