PAPA ROACH is kicking off the new year with a powerful message behind their latest anthemic single ‘Stand Up’ “It’s inspired by the social unrest of marginalized people throughout the world and the feeling of wanting to give up when you’re backed against the wall. It’s for the ones that have been oppressed for so long that a sense of hopelessness is all they have,” says frontman Jacoby Shaddix.
“Stand Up is meant to inspire that whisper, that small voice inside that you are worth standing for. Step into empowerment and shake the world with your voice.”
Produced by Jason Evigan (Dua Lipa, G-Eazy, Maroon 5), the release brings massive energy and unique arrangements to Shaddix’s uplifting and motivating lyrics. The track focuses on their signature, bouncing anthems, and encourages people to stand up against injustice, complacency, and opposition.
‘Stand Up’ joins previously released singles ‘Dying To Believe,’ ‘Kill The Noise‘ (which held the no. 1 position on the Mainstream Rock Charts for over a month) and genre-bending banger of a single ‘Swerve‘ featuring Jason Aalon Butler (Fever 333) and Sueco. All the tracks were pulled from a 2020 writing session with a tight-knit creative team including familiar collaborators Colin Brittain and Nick Furlong. What started as an escape and an exercise in keeping the creative juices flowing in a world that had completely ground to a halt, quickly grew into something bigger. The forthcoming album, expected to drop later this year, will be released via New Noize Records, in partnership with ADA Worldwide (WMG’s independent label and artist services arm). LISTEN HERE.
Last week the band celebrated their emotional hard rock belter ‘Scars’ certifying Silver in the UK – In addition the track has had over 170 million streams on Spotify with the video notching up over 110 million views so far.
The band has just announced their North American “Kill The Noise” tour and continued their celebrations after immediately selling out the first night. The tour features very special guests Hollywood Undead and Bad Wolves. Produced by Live Nation, it will make stops in the United States and Canada, marking their first headlining tour in three years.

They also announced their return to Mexico City on April 4th at Pepsi Center – a special Co-headline event with Simple Plan, and opening act EMO NITE spinning eclectic nostalgic hits throughout the evening.
