Papa Roach Drops Off Rockstar Uproar Festival, Lead Singer Undergoing Surgery

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.

this band was in fact overexposed amateur work. skated by on the nu-metal hype thanks to limp bizkit and korn. the lack of technical merit speaks for itself.

Clearly this nodule is the byproduct of playing the old rusty trombone.

Almost forgot... @ Demoncleaner: I'm sure I speak for everyone when I say you weren't missed and wouldn't ever be if you never came back. In fact I think it would be a win/win situation for everyone involved. Nobody's holding a gun to your head and asking you to come to this site. Thank you in advance your your cooperation.

Speaking of Killswitch, surely gonna miss Howards sweet operatic vox. Leach coming back will turn them back into old stuff, which was also not bad (CHUGGA CHUGGA). As for Papa Roach, I dont know....always been on the teeterin totterin with them.

Three words as my answer for the screaming situation:

At The Gates.
