Live: PAPA ROACH // O2 Forum Kentish Town, London
Following the release of their latest album Who Do You Trust?, Papa Roach took to Kentish Town’s stage for their second night in London.
Who Do You Trust? itself is a brilliant album, and it feels like it is what Papa Roach have been leading up to over the last few years.
Opening with Last Resort the crowd erupts into chaos which continues throughout the entire set. Lead singer Jacoby Shaddix bounds around the stage with endless energy proving just how good a showman he is. The crowd goes particularly nuts for other songs like Between Angels And Insects and Elevate, the room singing back the intro to the new single is chill inducing “Woah, lift me higher. Woah, when I get down” The lighting production for this show is manic and ever changing complementing the music well.
Everything about Papa Roach’s set is seamless and blisteringly heavy. Cody dedicates Scars to anyone going through darkness at the moment after talking about his perception of himself and how he is trying to become someone better, which is a major theme in the F.E.A.R. album. After going off stage briefly, Papa Roach riot back onto stage performing a cover of The Prodigy’s Firestarter getting the crowd to go low, dedicating the pit to Kieth Flint.
Papa Roach’s gig at Kentish Town Forum has been mind-blowingly good from start to finish and it really showcases what amazing musicians they are.
