Papa Roach have given fans a taste of their forthcoming ninth album with a video for their new single ‘Help’. The track dropped earlier today, Friday 15th February and is available across all digital streaming platforms via Eleven Seven Music. The new album is expected to be released in May.

“Help” was produced by Nicholas “Ras” Furlong and Colin Brittian, who grew up listening to Papa Roach and inspired the band to revisit some of their early influences. “We really followed our instincts and tried something unproven,” explains Furlong. “We ended up morphing the band’s best ‘old school’ traits into a courageous and more adventurous version of Papa Roach in the 21st Century.” Lyrically the new offering, touches on the personal, yet relatable, theme that surrounds the universal struggle of surviving mental health issues.
Papa Roach teased fans late last year with the viral release of “Crooked Teeth” (LISTEN HERE), which is nearing 2M streams on Spotify. Featuring one of the album’s more unorthodox moments—the 808 bass drop into a metal breakdown, “Crooked Teeth” hit the online community, exciting fans all over the world who are expecting an album as dynamic as their classics INFEST and Getting Away with Murder.
Papa Roach will be heading out on a Canadian tour with Sum 41 during April, followed by a handful of US festival dates. More dates will be announced soon via their website: www.paparoach.com/tour

Frontman Ronnie Radke previously told Alternative Press that the album is "a huge left turn. It sounds like nothing we've ever done. Every song is very vibey. There's more feeling in it."
He continued, "We're challenging ourselves now more than we ever have in the weirdest ways possible, because you would think writing the craziest solo or riffs would be the challenging part. But the challenging part is trying to stick to a theme and not go all over the place like we would normally do."
Falling in Reverse will embark on a busy touring schedule in support of the album. The band is currently on tour in the US with Issues and Motionless in White.
Enter Shikari last night shocked fans with an unexpected “drop" of a totally brand new track.
‘Hoodwinker’ received its worldwide premier play courtesy of Daniel P Carter on BBC Radio 1’s Rock Show, and then appeared on streaming and download services immediately after.
Initial recording of the track was started at the same time as January’s one-off ‘Redshift’ single, then completed during free time between summer festival performances. A video (DIY in creation, epic in vision) was shot in August, utilising family resources (Rob’s brother, Rou’s uncle. for example) and friends who didn’t mind getting wet.
Watch the video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1qCpoH4VO9Y
On the subject of ‘Hoodwinker’, frontman Rou Reynolds had this to say:
"Every now and then, outside of album releases and their attendant “campaigns”, it's nice to release a song into the wild, out-of-the-blue. To bowl it full force at the faces of the general public without prior warning. ‘Hoodwinker’ is the current incoming projectile.
It is Enter Shikari angrily calling out your God as an imposter. Which I'm afraid he is. I know you thought all the others were imposters and yours was in fact the real one, but I'm afraid he is a phoney too. We have clear evidence of false paperwork and forged documents. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.
Please enjoy this piece of angry music though. I hope its frustration and righteous indignation will go some way to dampening the annoying news.”
Enter Shikari release the sixth in their “Bootleg Series” of albums with the release of ‘Live at Alexandra Palace’ on coloured vinyl double LP and a double CD, as well as on all streaming / download services, on November 11th.

After a decade of hard work in the music industry, Scottish Alternative band Yashin have decided to bring their project to an end.
They will celebrate all of their achievements and their friendship together as a band and with their fans at 2 final shows before the curtain falls on 2016. The shows will take place at the Garage, London on Friday 25th November 2016 & the Garage, Glasgow Friday 2nd December 2016.
The band will be airing songs from all of their full-length albums and EP's, with some special guest appearances.
Over the years Yashin have been a force within the post-alternative Rock and Metal scene. However, with the music scene always moving towards 'the next big thing', it has been the undoing of not only Yashin, but many of their peers and heroes including Funeral for a Friend, Kids and Glass Houses, The Blackout, Glamour of the Kill, the list goes on...
These shows are a call to arms to Yashin fans to Stand Up and unite with the Renegades, come and party and hangout with the band!
"Thanks to everyone over the years for giving us the incredible gift of living a dream, we will be forever grateful. These are the final 2 shows for Yashin, one last ride! Our message as a band has always been "Stand Up and Make Yourself Count", come celebrate that and the music with us one more time." - Harry Radford
Yashin will be joined by With One Last Breath.
Friday 25th November - The Garage - LONDON
Friday 2nd December - The Garage - GLASGOW

“”Hologram” could only be written after touring 200+ days a year for half a decade. It’s a self-examination of the people we’ve become and the relationships that we’ve carried through this period of growing up while a part of something more than ourselves.” - Andy Leo
