LiveDaily.com report: Papa Roach ratchets up its support for its recently released album, "The Paramour Sessions," by opening a stretch of shows for resurgent rockers Guns N' Roses, and following that stint with a run atop the Zippo Hot Tour roster.
The Sacramento-based quartet, which is currently tackling a European tour, will link up with GN'R for that group's Oct. 20 tour kick-off in Jacksonville, FL, and will remain on board through the outing's Nov. 3 stop in Huntington, WV.
A short break follows before the band returns to the stage for the Nov. 11 launch of the Zippo Hot Tour, dates for which currently span a two-week stretch; details are shown below. Sponsored by Zippo Manufacturing Company, the tour's lineup will also feature the winner of an in-progress battle of the bands that Zippo has been conducting throughout the year.
"We are stoked to be headlining this year's Zippo Hot Tour," Papa Roach frontman Jacoby Shaddix said in statement. "When Zippo approached us about this opportunity we couldn't say no. Supporting local music scenes has always been a priority for us, and the fact that the Zippo Hot Tour gives a young local band an opportunity to have a career in the music business is amazing."
More information about the Zippo Tour--including details about the bands vying for the opening slot--is available at the tour's official website.
Capping off Papa Roach's current itinerary is a Dec. 8 hometown performance at Sacramento radio station KWOD's Twisted Xmas concert. Details about that gig, which will also include performances from My Chemical Romance and Gnarls Barkley, are available at KWOD's website.
Last month, Papa Roach offered up "The Paramour Sessions." The disc, which is the band's fifth full-length album, features the lead-off single "To Be Loved," the music video for which is streaming at the band's website.
