Rock legends Papa Roach have scored their 12th career No 1 single with “Leave A Light On (Talk Away The Dark)“, which has climbed steadily at Active Rock Radio since its release in October 2023.

The band first performed “Leave A Light On” during their “The Revolutions Live Tour” in September 2024 to 250,000 people over 30 shows. In each city, the song was preceded by a PSA delivered by frontman Jacoby Shaddix, who pledged a donation to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) on behalf of each city’s attendees, culminating in a $155,000 donation at the end of the tour.

The official live video was released in conjunction with the AFSP’s “Talk Away The Dark” campaign with the band pledging a perpetual royalty from the song’s use, in any manner, to the AFSP, continuing their mission to save lives and bring hope to those affected by suicide.

We had a passion for this song from the time we finished it over 3 years ago,” said singer Jacoby Shaddix. “When creating the set list for the final leg of the Ego Trip album cycle, we really wanted to see if the live audience would connect with “Leave A Light On” the way we did – and the best way to do that is to perform it to ten thousand fans a night! From that first show, it connected. We could see it on their faces.  We instantly knew the power of this song and its ability to help ‘leave a light on’ for those who needed it most.”

“Leave A Light On (Talk Away The Dark)” is taken from the band’s 10th studio album, EGO TRIP, which has accumulated over 260 million streams since its April 2022 release.  The album (produced by Colin BrittainNick Furlong, and Papa Roach), also achieved three previous #1 singles: “Kill The Noise“, “No Apologies“, and “Cut The Line” feat. Beartooth’s Caleb Shomo. LALO has already streamed over 25 million times to date globally, currently streaming nearly 1.5M  per week.

Released via the band’s own label, New Noize Records, distributed by ADA Warner Music, Papa Roach celebrated the initial global launch of EGO TRIP in Mexico that led to a series of unique integrations for the album. The ‘trip’ started with a two-night performance at Pa’l Norte Festival in Monterrey, The band partnered with VANS inviting fans to an exclusive album listening event at the House of Vans in Mexico City who then appeared in a music video shot for the album’s title track and concluded with a co-headline arena performance with Simple Plan.

This was followed by a TikTok-presented global live-stream performance at an unsuspecting Shakey’s Pizza Parlor in Hollywood, CA for invited fans.  Amazon Music Originals then partnered with the band to release the “Battle Drum Marching Band” version of the track “Stand Up” alongside a campaign for the UFC on ESPN+, which earned EGO TRIP a 2022 MusicAlly Best Marketing Campaign award.  Since EGO TRIP‘s release, the band’s digital footprint has grown to Spotify Monthly Listenership (+66%), Instagram following (+34%) and their Tiktok following, to a massive (+1932%) increase.

On tour, the EGO TRIP album cycle has seen the launch of the massively successful Rockzilla Tour alongside co-headliners Falling In Reverse. The two-leg tour dominated arenas in 46 cities across the USA and Canada. Papa Roach has also played 150 headline shows and numerous festivals across the world.

Last week, the band announced their signing to Wasserman Music – Pollstar’s 2023Booking Agency Of The Year and whose expansive roster includes Kenny Chesney, Coldplay, Deftones, Billie Eilish, Kendrick Lamar, My Chemical Romance, Rise Against and more – for worldwide representation (ex-Canada),

Papa Roach is already planning an extended World Tour for 2025-26, with next year marking 25 years since the release of the band’s iconic debut album INFEST.  Frontman Jacoby Shaddix commented, “We have a lot in store for fans next year. We will be celebrating that occasion and more with a few surprises thrown in.
