Papa Roach announced today that they have signed with Wasserman Music for worldwide live representation, excluding Canada where they will be represented by Paquin Entertainment Group.
The California hard rock band first broke onto the scene in 2000 with their album Infest, which peaked at No. 5 on the Billboard albums chart, driven by the success of their debut single “Last Resort,” which peaked at No. 57 on the Billboard Hot 100 and topped the Modern Rock chart for seven weeks.
Papa Roach will be represented worldwide by Wasserman Music agents Corrie Martin, Geoff Meall, and Anna Bewers except for Canada, where they will be represented by Jason Furman of Paquin Artists Agency.
Last year, Papa Roach played over 90 concerts touring North America, the U.K., Australia and Europe, beginning in February with the second leg of their headliner Rockzilla Tour with Falling in Reverse and Hollywood Undead, then joined Don Broco for a four city U.K. arena tour in March, followed by a seven city arena with the Used in Australia in April. The band returned in May to play Sick New World festival in Las Vegas, before heading to Europe in June where they played 18 rock festivals in 28 days, and then returning to North America to play another 40 dates through October. In 2022, the band played more than 60 dates internationally.
Papa Roach has released 11 studio albums since 1997, including their most recent effort, Ego Trip, released on their own label New Noize Records. The 2022 release has garnered over 280 million global streams to date, and produced three No. 1 singles on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Airplay chart, bringing the band’s total to 26 career Top-10 hits, and nine career No 1s. Papa Roach are currently campaigning with partner organization the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention with their single “Leave A Light On (Talk Away The Dark)” which sits at No. 4 on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Airplay chart.
“Since the pandemic started, we really pushed ourselves and believed that we controlled our own destiny,” frontman Jacoby Shaddix told Billboard in a statement. “We started our own label, hired the right teams, and have found an excellent niche in social media where our music, our personalities, and our fans meet. A full-service company that understands our vision & can help us navigate this growth in the multi-media landscape is essential. Next year will bring a lot of surprises!”
