Those of a certain age (closing in on 40, let’s say) will remember Papa Roach as an angry young rock band, killing it on stage at the Van Warped tour, back when it stopped at Fresno State.
And every one shouted along – “Cut my heart into pieces!”
Flash forward 18 or so years and the band is headlining a concert on its Crooked Teeth tour May 7 at Rotary Amphitheatre in Woodward Park. Tickets for the show go on sale 10 a.m. Friday and are available online or in person at Strummer’s and SBI Riverpark.
The Vacaville rock band will hit 25 cities in support of its latest album, which debuted No. 1 on Billboard’s Hard Rock Albums chart in June. It was in the top five on the Alternative Albums and Rock Album charts.
Nothing More was nominated for two Grammy awards this year – best rock performance and best rock album.
Escape the Fate is no stranger to Fresno. The band has played regularly in town over the past few years.
