Papa Roach Urges Fans Not To Buy Their Greatest Hits CD

As Papa Roach prepare to release their new live/studio album Time For Annihilation on Seven Eleven records, the bands previous label, Interscope/Geffen, are set to release a greatest hits package for the band.

According to a blog on the bands site, this was against their wishes and just a way for their previous lable to cash in on their name.

“Since our fans have always stood behind us, we want to let you in on a little behind the scenes bullshit going on with our ex record label.  As Papa Roach gets ready to release our new CD, TIME FOR ANNIHILATION on August 31st on our new label, Eleven Seven Music, our old record label Interscope / Geffen has decided to put out a “Best Of Papa Roach” without our consent and against our wishes.”

The band are urging their fans not to buy this Greatest Hits CD and buy  Time For Annihilation instead, and support the band.

“To that we say FUCK THEM, DO NOT BUY IT!  Do not support those greedy fucks and their desperate attempt to try and cash in on Papa Roach’s music after we have left the label.  Over the years we made them tons of money, gave them hit songs on every record, and put up with all the bullshit broken promises that they have fed us time and time again . It is unethical and disrespectful of them to do such a thing, especially knowing that we will be on the road to support the official new Papa Roach release “Time For Annihilation”.”

I’m a strong believer in supporting the artist, so I won’t be purchasing the greatest hits CD as the band obviously don’t want their fans to buy it, I will buy Time For Annihilation instead. I do however think the band are overlooking the fact that they will still get royalties from the greatest hits album, but I fully understand their frustration at the label for doing it without their input and consent.
