Papa Roach to Perform Live Broadcast and Answer Fan Questions
Papa Roach is returning to the stage after a 2-month hiatus due to Jacoby Shaddix’s surgery on his vocal cords. To celebrate their return to the stage, the band is performing a live broadcast concert and answering fan questions on YouTube.
The concert will happen at 4 p.m. Central time on Tuesday the 23rd, but it’s not open to everyone. Instead, you fill out a form on their Web site, and with any luck you’ll get an email confirming that you’re one of the lucky ones who gets to watch.
Shaddix has had his share of troubles this year prior to finding out about nodes on his vocal cords. He’s stated in several interviews that he nearly committed suicide earlier in the year after going through marital issues and falling off the wagon. Things are looking up, and now he’s looking at new ways to take care of his voice, saying:
I’ve got to create a new discipline for vocalizing, you know, really concentrate on my warm-ups. Concentrate on what I eat. You know, concentrating on getting proper rest – like, all these things that I never wanted to do before, like, I have to do now. ‘Cause I’m getting old!
Following this performance, Papa Roach will be going over the pond to do a tour in Europe, which starts in early November.
