PAPA ROACH Hits Milestone With Billion Streams

According to The Pulse Of Radio, PAPA ROACH was awarded Pandora's "Billion Streams" plaque in celebration of the group's catalog reaching a billion streams on the music service. The bandmembers were presented with the plaque on Thursday (January 24), the last of their three-night run at the Roxy in Los Angeles to celebrate the release of its new album, "Who Do You Trust?"

PAPA ROACH said: "We're thrilled to be Pandora billionaires. It means so much that our fans support us through the years and that Pandora gives them the opportunity to stream how they want. Thanks to the fans and thanks to Pandora — big thumbs up from PAPA ROACH!"

"Who Do You Trust?", PAPA ROACH's newly released 10th studio LP, already has some pretty impressive numbers. Besides reaching No. 1 on the iTunes Rock Albums chart, it also accumulated 4.1 million album streams in just four days.

Singer Jacoby Shaddix told The Pulse Of Radio not long ago that PAPA ROACH is always itching to prove itself all over again. "We've always had that hungry, you know, fighter spirit, that hustler spirit, you know, and that's just something that's been ingrained in our band since the beginning," he said. "We're still excited about this rock and roll band that we're in, and we're still... it doesn't feel like a job to us. When we get in that room and the four of us start jamming, it's like there's something magical that happens there and, you know, we just can't deny that."

The band will next join SHINEDOWN's North American tour in February, before headlining its own trek in July with ASKING ALEXANDRIA and BAD WOLVES along for support.
