Following the release of their ninth studio album, 'Crooked Teeth', last month which brought them their fourth consecutive Top 20 entry in the UK, Papa Roach will be touring the UK for the first time in two years in October.

Singer Jacoby Shaddix said:

"We're really excited to get back to the UK after such a long time. Every time we play the audience keeps getting bigger and more passionate each time. We can't wait to play this new music live."

Support(s) to be announced soon. The dates are:

Thursday 5th October: Birmingham O2 Academy
Friday 6th October: Nottingham Rock City
Saturday 7th October: Glasgow O2 Academy
Tuesday 10th October: London O2 Academy Brixton
Wednesday 11th October: Manchester O2 Apollo

Papa Roach's last visit to the UK saw them celebrate the 15th anniversary of their generation defining album 'Infest' by playing it in full to a crammed London's Roundhouse.

Papa Roach have also just released an official video for 'Periscope', the moody ballad featuring singer/songwriter Skylar Grey. Here it is...

The video was directed by award-winning firm The Uprising Creative (Rihanna, Justin Timberlake, Big Sean, Lil Jon) who cited the inspiration for the video as being "to create a moody, different look for the band using a stylistic light exploration".

"'Periscope' is inspired by the realisation that sometimes within a relationship you might not be worth being loved or that the other person may not be worth your love, and the struggle within that - how much effort it takes to make things work," says Jacoby Shaddix.

"One part that I think is really meaningful in the video is when Skylar and I are in the shot at the same time, yet we're not engaging with each other. It represents the 'disconnection' with two people, which is very much what the lyrics describe."

Grey adds: "You are loving someone from a distance, not able to reach them."
