||PAPA ROACH ANNOUNCE HEADLINING EUROPEAN TOUR
21st June 2013
Grammy-nominated, multiplatinum alternative rock band Papa Roach will be heading back to Europe in support of their latest album 'The Connection' (Eleven Seven Music).
The band announced the tour just before their storming main stage appearance at Download Festival last weekend. This will be their first headlining tour since 2009 and kicks off in Portsmouth on December 1st, finishing at Brixton Academy on Dec 10th, bringing Middle Class Rut and Amercian Fangs along as support.
After visiting the UK as part of the Taste of Chaos tour in 2010, co-headlining with Stone Sour last year, as well as Sonisphere and Download Festival appearances, one of this generation's greatest live rock bands is now back headlining in their own right.

Their sixth full-length studio album (second for label home Eleven Seven Music), 'The Connection', was released on October 2012. The album was produced by rock veteran James Michael (Sixx:A.M., Halestorm) and John Feldmann (Panic at the Disco, The Used) and has been receiving critical praise across the board.
In their 4K review Kerrang declared it was "the sound of a band who know their craft inside out, but who aren't afraid to grow and try something new", Metal Hammer said that the band "have defiantly proved their calibre once more" and Rocksound commented that the album was "as energetic and downright urgent as any Papa Roach have produced in the last 10 years."
Papa Roach have sold upwards of 10 million albums worldwide. The band boasts two Grammy nominations, an MTV VMA nomination, as well as eleven Top 10 rock hits, seven Top 10 alternative hits and can claim the Most Played Alternative Song of the Decade (BDS) with their breakthrough single 'Last Resort'.
Known for their electrifying and explosive live shows, Papa Roach have become responsible for some of the most successful rock tours in recent years.
