The last 18 months have been massively successful for rock juggernauts Papa Roach, who today celebrate the release of EGO TRIP DIGITAL DELUXE EDITION and the long-awaited EGO TRIP Standard Edition on Vinyl via their own New Noize Records.
The extended 20-track version of EGO TRIP – a record that has accumulated over 220 million streams, launched two #1 singles with a third released last week – “Cut The Line” Feat. Beartooth’s Caleb Shomo and garnered attention from SPIN, Consequence, Grammy.com + more – features remixed versions of songs from the original record as well as new music. Stream EGO TRIP DIGITAL DELUXE EDITION now HERE.
Also available today is the EGO TRIP Vinyl LP, now in its second edition after it was initially available for November’s Black Friday Record Store Day. The worldwide release features the Standard 14-track album in unique packaging with a pop-up EGO TRIP roller coaster inside the gatefold amusement park map, and 140g vinyl LP in Opaque Black, “Translucent Purple” for Indie Retailers, “Strawberry Shortcake” available via the band’s merchandise store, and “Yellow & Black Swirl” exclusively on tour, the latter two variants including a special 7” featuring two acoustic tracks. “Strawberry Shortcake” is available www.paparoach.com
“This cycle has been unreal,” says frontman Jacoby Shaddix. “Forming New Noize, releasing our own music with such success, and seeing people from all over the world love this music has been so gratifying. Now we’re going GLOBAL and bringing the rock right to the people!”
The band has just finished the second leg of their Rockzilla Tour in the USA which took in stops at 21 cities, the majority of which were SOLD OUT.
In the next couple of months Papa Roach has a string of UK dates with Don Broco and Dance Gavin Dance (the London date at Alexandra Palace is already sold out and Birmingham is on a Low-Ticket Alert), the co-headline “Cut My Heart Into Pieces” Australian trek with The Used, followed by Summer Festival appearances in Europe with more to be announced.

After two years of work and building up excitement with their fans, Papa Roach recently celebrated the release of their eleventh studio album EGO TRIP. An album that sprouted almost by mistake in the throes of a global lockdown, its seeds were planted when the quartet entered a COVID-secure mansion in Temecula, California in the summer of 2020.
What started as an escape and an exercise in keeping the creative juices flowing, in a world that had completely ground to a halt, quickly grew into something bigger. Purposeful, provocative, and just the right side of the line between confident and cocky (“I really hope [the album title] stops a few people in their tracks” laughs front man Jacoby Shaddix), EGO TRIP is Papa Roach – completed by guitarist Jerry Horton, bassist Tobin Esperance and drummer Tony Palermo – at its boldest and most brilliant.
Papa Roach are two-time GRAMMY-nominated, Platinum-selling leaders in Alternative Hard Rock music, who in 2020 celebrated the 20th Anniversary of their iconic album“INFEST”. 20 years into their career, the band continues to have global success.
