Lead photographer and editor of f28 Chris Sturk sat down with Jacoby of Papa Roach to talk about their new record and recording process in this episode of the Artists Insight.

Papa Roach is one of the top selling rock bands of the last 20 years with over 20 million albums sold world wide. There new record really breaks the mold of what some people may think Papa Roach is, but the sound is oh so good. “Who do you trust” is the 10th album from Papa Roach and was released early 2019. You can check out the link below for more information on where to pick up your copy.

Now lets talk about their tour stop in Raleigh NC. Papa Roach is know for their explosive and energetic stage performances as well as great quality sound. Jacoby came out on stage in rock style fashion with the lights down low and this huge screen glowing behind him. The band came out in full foresee with energy and enthusiasm making sure the fans new they were happy to be there. It was a beautiful night and the weather was perfect for a night concert.

I have seen Papa Roach live on two separate occasions and they always put on an exciting show. This is the first time I got to cover them and they did not disappoint. Jacoby even talked about some of the pressure he puts on himself to bring that high-quality energetic show to the fans and I can say without a doubt he pulled that off tonight

During the middle of the show Jacoby walked out into the crowd and sang with them while the fans just screamed in excitement. At one point Jacoby stopped and asked a young kid he was standing next to in the crowd “You having fun?” and with a tiny voice you hear over the microphone “yes I am!”. The band sounded great and everybody hit their points and never once let up. Check them out on tour now with Bad Wolves and Asking Alexandria. We will link their website so you can see updated information on their tour stops.
