But surrounding them with the exact right element of bands that span the spectrum of classic to current and metal to lighter rock, that’s the key. This year’s lineup has that perfect balance with a little something for everyone.”

Papa Roach has been forced to withdraw from the Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival. Lead singer Jacoby Shaddix has been diagnosed with a nodule on his left vocal cord, and at the advice of his physician he will undergo corrective surgery to remove the nodule and prevent further damage.
“It’s no secret that I’ve been having issues with my voice lately. I was hoping to be able to go out there and kill it on this tour by resting and doing vocal exercises, but my voice has just gone out on me. I hate to let our fans down, but unfortunately surgery is the only way to fix it,” Shaddix said. “The last thing we want to do is give our fans less than 100% every night. We know they’ll understand and we’ll be back better than ever.”
Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival co-producer John Oakes comments, “It was amazing having Papa Roach on the road with us for the first few UPROAR shows. We’re disappointed that they can’t continue for the rest of the tour, but Jacoby’s health is the priority and we wish him a speedy recovery."
The Rockstar Energy Drink UproarFestival main stage schedule will be adjusted to allow longer performances from Shinedown, Godsmack, Staind and Adelitas Way. For the latest information and to purchase tickets, head to this location.

A Papa Roach greatest-hits album is hitting the stores in a few days. But the band is telling fans not to buy it.
Papa Roach posted a statement on its official website June 24 that its former record label, Interscope/Geffen, is releasing "To Be Loved: Best of Papa Roach" without its consent. The quartet is particularly incensed that the album's June 29 release date coincides with the act touring in support of its new album, "Time for Annihilation," which is arriving Aug. 31 through its current label, Eleven Seven Music.
"Since our fans have always stood behind us, we want to let you in on a little behind the scenes bullshit going on with our ex record label," the band writes, claiming that it has made the label a lot of money only to be rewarded with "all the bullshit broken promises that they have fed us time and time again." However, the members make clear that their anger isn't directed "at the staff of people that busted their ass for Papa Roach at that label for years on a ground level . . . It is directed towards the people at the top who make the decisions."
Papa Roach wraps up its current U.S. tour July 1. It then heads to Europe to perform a slate of festival dates through Aug. 15.
