Papa Roach self-confirm Download Festival

Papa Roach are the latest band to self-confirm an appearance at this year's Download Festival.

The American nu-metallers are set for the second stage at the Donington Park event.

Speaking to Metal Hammer, lead singer, Jacoby Shaddix said: "We’re going to be playing the side stage at Download. We’re going to be playing on the same stage and day as ZZ Top. It’s going to be good times!"

They join a bill which already boasts Roach's contemporaries Limp Bizkit, who have recently reverted to their original line-up as well as headliners Slipknot and rock legends Marilyn Manson and ZZ Top.
