An overwhelming 1.5 million people responded to the call to action and made their voices heard.

Says Zoltan Bathory (guitar) of Five Finger Death Punch: “This tour is shaping up to be the perfect storm. We are really good friends with Papa Roach, so for years we’ve been talking about touring together and it’s finally coming together in a big way. Both 5fdp and Papa Roach are bands of the people – our fans are who propelled us to success. So what better way than to give the fans ownership in the tour? In the world of Wikipedia and Kickstarter where crowd funding and crowd sourcing has become the standard of community effort and the new way of making things happen this might quite possibly be the future of touring – you simply ask the fans where they want you to go”.  “We are super excited to be sharing the stage on this co-headliner with FFDP,” says PAPA ROACH vocalist, Jacoby Shaddix. “This will give Papa Roach the chance to put on the best, most epic live show to date.
