Papa Roach rocks Amplified Summer series in Stateline
If you go ...
What: Papa Roach
When: Saturday, Aug. 11, 6 p.m.
Where: Hard Rock Hotel & Casino
The Amplified Summer Music Series continues with a performance from prominent ’90s and early 2000s rock band Papa Roach on Saturday, Aug. 11.
“Over the past two decades Papa Roach have established themselves as true trendsetters in rock music: They’ve been nominated for two Grammys, toured the globe with everyone from Eminem to Marilyn Manson and crafted the nü metal anthem ‘Last Resort,’ which is still in heavy rotation on rock radio 17 years after its release,” states the band’s online biography.
Papa Roach, known for songs including “Last Resort” and “Scars,” released its latest album (“Crooked Teeth”) in 2017.
“The album was recorded in a cramped North Hollywood studio with up-and-coming producers Nicholas ‘RAS’ Furlong and Colin Brittain, who grew up listening to Papa Roach and inspired them to revisit some of the traits that personally endeared the band to them, most notably frontman Jacoby Shaddix’s remarkable rapping technique,” continues the bio.
But the new material truly makes the entirety of the band shine.
“From the instantly infectious nature of the title track to the atmospheric sheen of the ballad ‘Periscope’ (which features Skylar Grey) and the hip-hop rock mashup ‘Sunrise Trailer Park’ (which features an impassioned verse from Machine Gun Kelly), ‘Crooked Teeth’ displays the various sides of Papa Roach and illustrates why they’ve managed to remain relevant while musical trends ebb and flow,” according to the bio.
The group’s South Shore gig begins at 6 p.m. and is held at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Stateline. Tickets range from $50-$269 and are available at http://www.hardrockcasinolaketahoe.com, along with more information.
