Papa Roach Embark on 2013 Carnival of Madness Tour!

The masters of hard rock are back!  The Grammy nominated and multiplatinum album selling hard rockers, Papa Roach, are returning to the road, announcing their participation on the 2013 Carnival of Madness Tour!  As it currently stands, this massive rock excursion will begin on August 13th, at Jacob’s Pavilion in Cleveland, OH, and spend the remaining 4 weeks winding its way around the US before coming to a close at Discovery Park in Sacramento, CA- with more dates to be announced shortly.  Papa Roach will be touring in support of their late-2012 release, The Connection, which hosts the charting singles, “Still Swingin’”, which took up a longstanding residency in the Top 3 on the Active Rock Charts, and, “Where Did the Angels Go”, which reached and maintained its presence inside the Top 10 shortly following its release to radio.    

The tens-of-thousands of fans that make their way through the festival gates at each stop of the 2013 Carnival of Madness Tour will be treated to one of the most exhilarating live concert experiences of today, starting the very second that Tony Palermo and Papa Roach take the stage.  Across the board and throughout the music world, it’s become a known fact that no one knows how to destroy a stage the way that Papa Roach does.  With their captivating live show personifying their unmistakable sound, Papa Roach throws down a ferocious set filled with countless rock anthems and the hit songs that have invaded rock airwaves for years, all while furiously exploring the stage and whipping the crowd into a pandemonium fueled frenzy. 

The man behind it all, leading the charge and carrying the set from one hit song to another, sits Papa Roach drummer, and Pearl artist, Tony Palermo.  On the upcoming Carnival of Madness Tour, Tony will be turning to his custom Masters MCX drums, complete with matching 26x16 bass drums, and complete in the ever-popular Black Cherry lacquer (335).  With Papa Roach’s heavy sound, Tony turns to the warm tones of the Masters MCX’s 6-ply, all-maple shells to provide the deep punch that’s essential for any and every rock concert.  Tony’s full specs are as follow:
