Papa Roach and JET Announce Co-headlining U.S. Tour
(New York, NY) – Rock bands Papa Roach and JET will usher in Winter 2009 with a co-headlining tour of the U.S. The affordable and eclectic rock show with a festival feel starts off in late October through the end of November and offers four bands for less than $40. Fans will be treated to no less than 14 hits in one night, which will include radio smashes like Papa Roach’s “Last Resort,” “Forever,” “Scars,” “Lifeline” (which remained at #1 on the Mainstream Rock chart for 9 weeks) and JET’s “Are You Gonna Be My Girl,” “Cold Hard Bitch,” “Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is,” “She’s A Genius” and the latest “Black Hearts (On Fire).”
Known for their electrifying live shows, Papa Roach have been touring nonstop behind their new album and fifth studio recording, Metamorphosis, which debuted at #8 on the Billboard Album Chart earlier this year. Fresh from the road alongside fellow powerhouse Nickelback, frontman Jacoby Shaddix says, “Playing shows every night is what we’re built for. We make a club feel like an arena and we make an arena feel like a club.” Indeed Hit Parader raves, “Papa Roach’s live energy is like a pack of wild horses – unbridled and uncontainable.”
Just returning from traveling twice around the world to set up their new album, Shaka Rock, JET are primed for their first major U.S. tour to promote the record. The new album closes the gap between the raw roots of Get Born and the grace and melody of Shine On which together went on to make JET an international band of style and substance. After four million albums sold worldwide and four Top Ten Modern Rock and Rock hits, the authentic Aussie rockers have returned to form with an album that parallels their smash, Get Born.
“We have been going non-stop to bring this album to our fans and we just want to keep going. It’s just so good to be out on the road playing our new music. The band expects to ‘tour our asses off’ for at least the next 18 months,” said JET’s drummer Chris Cester.
