Papa Roach’s second album (and major label debut) 2000’s Infest peaked inside North America’s Billboard 200 album chart’s Top 5, propelled by the global nu-metal smash hit ‘Last Resort, which remains in heavy rotation on rock radio seventeen years after its release. Amidst the album’s widespread critical acclaim and multi-Platinum success, the band garnered two Grammy Award nominations, for Best New Artist and Best Music Video (Short Form) for another of the album’s key singles, ‘Broken Home’, in addition to an MTV Video Music Award nomination for Best New Artist.
Produced and mixed by Jay Baumgardner, Infest features Papa Roach’s Jacoby Shaddix on lead vocals, Jerry Horton on guitars and backing vocals, Tobin Esperance on bass and former member Dave Buckner on drums. The album’s guest artists include DJ A.M, Aimee Echo and Rodney Duke.
Following Infest, Papa Roach performed an extensive worldwide tour, including headline shows in the US and Europe and the main stage for 2001’s Ozzfest tour across North America and the UK. Released on 18 June 2002, the band’s third album Lovehatetragedy shot to No 2 on the Billboard 200 and earned a gold certification in the US, Canada and the UK. Recorded by the same core line-up as Infest, the album features the international hit ‘She Loves Me Not’ and ‘Time And Time Again’ and it drew contemporary critical praise including four-star reviews from Rolling Stone and The Guardian.
