Speaking to Z93 last year, frontman Jacoby Shaddix teased an anniversary celebration for Papa Roach’s breakthrough album Infest, which turns 20 in April.

“2020, we’re going to celebrate the 20-year anniversary of our album Infest,” frontman Jacoby Shaddix told Z93. “And so, April 25th, 2020, we will be having a celebration.”

It’s unclear whether he’s referring to the upcoming Portland tour date, or if Papa Roach have yet to reveal their anniversary plans. Jacoby also spoke about Papa Roach’s impact.

“Music can be a bright spot to people — it can be a source of strength,”Jacoby said. “It can be a source of hope to people and Papa Roach has been a source of strength and hope to people out there.”
