Papa Roach Donates $150k to American Foundation for Suicide Prevention

Rock legends Papa Roach announced that they have made a $150,000 donation to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) “Talk Away The Dark Campaign” which was presented at the Finale performance of “The Revolutions Live Tour” alongside touring partners Shinedown and Spiritbox and tour promoter Live Nation in Denver, CO. The tour, which performed to over 250,000 attendees at 30 shows, saw the debut live performance of the song “Leave A Light On”, which was preceded by an emotional PSA delivered by frontman Jacoby Shaddix, who pledged a donation on behalf of each city’s attendees, culminating in the $150,000 donation.

The band were so moved by the emotive response each night of the tour and the work done by the AFSP, that they have officially re-named the song “Leave A Light On (Talk Away The Dark)” and pledged a perpetual royalty from the song’s use, to be donated directly to the AFSP to continue their mission to save lives and bring hope to those affected by suicide long after the “Revolutions Live Tour.” The re-named single will officially be released on October 31, 2023.

“This issue doesn't just affect one of us, or a few of us, it affects all of us.” says Papa Roach frontman Jacoby Shaddix. "We’re proud to work alongside the AFSP to support their mission to bring hope to those affected by suicide, and proud that this song - which has been special to us since it was first written - can play a part in bringing a little more light to an incredibly important topic.”
