Papa Roach Working on ‘Infest’ 20th Anniversary Documentary + New Music
In April, Papa Roach's major label debut, Infest, will turn 20 years old. It appears their attention will be split between looking forward with new music and celebrating the past with a potential documentary in the works, which aims to celebrate that all-important 2000 release.
"We've got some surprises coming celebrating our first record, Infest," bassist Tobin Esperance told Goetia Media in a recent interview as Papa Roach traverses Europe on tour with Hollywood Undead and Ice Nine Kills.
The long-time member revealed that there's potential for a documentary release as he explained, "All of the footage that we've acquired over the past 20 years, we're hoping to put it into a documentary that's gonna come out soon."
Papa Roach aren't strictly focused on the past, however, and have already been tinkering with new music after releasing Who Do You Trust? early in 2019. "And all the while, we've been in the studio making new music and just kind of experimenting. We're looking forward to putting out new music, maybe some reinterpretations of old music and also a documentary," noted Esperance, who added, "And we're just gonna keep touring and celebrating life and music."
Once Papa Roach wrap up their European tour on March 18, they'll have three weeks off before having to head back out on the road for a U.S. tour. On that trek, they'll be providing direct support for Five Finger Death Punch with special guests I Prevail and Ice Nine Kills. See those upcoming dates directly below.
