Papa Roach Biography

The Northern Californian alt-metal group Papa Roach consists
of Coby Dick , Jerry Horton , Dave Buckner , and Tobin Esperance .
They formed in 1993 and began releasing EPs soon after,
including 1994´s Potatoes for Christmas and 1995´s Caca Bonita.
By 1996, the group replaced original bassist Will James with
Esperance and hired a new manager; the following year,
Papa Roach released their first full-length album,
Old Friends From Young Years, which became a surprise hit
on local radio. The band´s regional success led to more
prominent gigs, including dates with Suicidal Tendencies ,
Sevendust , and Powerman 5000 , and a deal with Dreamworks
Records, which released Papa Roach ´s second album, Infest ,
in early 2000. The album went triple-platinum thanks to the
success of the single´Last Resort. ´Two years later,
frontman Coby Dick opted to go by his given name of Jacoby
Shaddix . A second album, lovehatetragedy , appeared in June 2002.
That same summer the band joined a number of rap acts
including Ludacris and Xzibit on Eminem´s Anger Management Tour.
