PAPA ROACH Celebrating 10th Anniversary Of DREAMWORKS RECORDS Signing

California rockers PAPA ROACH will celebrate the 10th anniversary of their signing to Dreamworks Records by playing two special shows. In Los Angeles they are returning to the club where they were first discovered, the Troubadour, on March 4, and in New York City they will perform at the intimate Blender Theater on March 10. Tickets are on sale now for both concerts.

On February 4, PAPA ROACH teamed up with music video director Christopher Sims — who has previously worked with STAIND, LAMB OF GOD, AS I LAY DYING, BLEEDING THROUGH, NORMA JEAN and THROWDOWN — in Long Beach, California to film the official music video for "Lifeline".

Behind-the-scenes footage and band interviews from the video shoot can be viewed below.

"Lifeline" comes off PAPA ROACH's fifth studio album, "Metamorphosis", which is scheduled for release on March 24 via DGC/Interscope Records. The CD was written at the legendary Paramour Mansion and recorded at NRG Recording Studios. The album was co-produced by Jay Baumgardener (311, EVANESCENCE, INCUBUS) and PAPA ROACH. James Michael (MÖTLEY CRÜE, SIXX: A.M.) also co-produced five tracks.

"Lifeline" is already burning up radio playlists across North America, rising quickly in the top 20 at both Active and Alternative Rock radio. To launch this song in its truest form, the band filmed "Lifeline" live during their performance at Crüe Fest 2008 in Toronto, Canada. Recorded entirely in one take, with no overdubs, the video features the power of PAPA ROACH live and shows that they are one of the few bands with the balls to share their true live sound with the world.

PAPA ROACH will guest on the nationally syndicated radio show "Rockline" with host Bob Coburn on Monday, March 23 at 8:30 p.m. PT / 11:30 p.m. ET. Fans are encouraged to speak with PAPA ROACH by calling 1-800-344-ROCK (7625).
