Papa Roach will be performing their debut album Infest in its entirety on an upcoming livestream in honor of its 20th anniversary.
The band confirmed the news in the video below and said the livestream will take place Saturday, June 20 at 2 PM PT/5 PM ET on Vier.Live.
Papa Roach has said in previous interviews that they had plans to honor the 20th anniversary of Infest this year, but it appears the coronavirus pandemic has put a wrench in some of those plans.
Frontman Jacoby Shaddix alluded to these plans back in August 2019 on Talkin’ Rock with Meltdown where he said, “We’re brewing up something that’s going to be next-level to celebrate the album…In 2020, we’re doing some really special events around it. It’s going to be dope.”
A Papa Roach career documentary is also in the works with bassist Tobin Esperance said in an interview with Goetia Media in March, “We’ve got some surprises coming celebrating our first record, ‘Infest.’ All of the footage that we’ve acquired over the past 20 years, we’re hoping to put it into a documentary that’s gonna come out soon. And all the while, we’ve been in the studio making new music and just kind of experimenting. We’re looking forward to putting out new music, maybe some reinterpretations of old music and also a documentary. And we’re just gonna keep touring and celebrating life and music.”
