More Papa Roach Tour Dates Announced

Papa Roach are making like their namesake, infesting the Billboard rock charts with the title track from their fourth album, "Getting Away With Murder." So what's next for the California quartet? They're about to release a new single and hit the road on a U.S. tour.

In a move that might surprise some of their diehard fans, the Roaches are readying the power ballad "Scars" as their second single. It's a big, sweeping mixture of guitars and honesty, as Jerry Horton crunches out chords and frontman Jacoby Shaddix sings about his struggles with sobriety.

"Some of our fans hear that song and say, 'I had to give it a few listens, dude. But I love it,' " Shaddix said. "It's a P-Roach anthem. It has heart. It's just undeniable. It stems from a good night in Vegas turned bad. I ended up in the hospital with 11 staples in my head, self-mutilation. It was just a really bad night. It's about trying to help someone who really doesn't want you to help them.
