You gotta love those Papa Roach guys! The video for their latest single Come Around is a fan-orientated one that focuses on mental health.
The video was filmed on their New York’s Pier date this year and features a long-time fan Mark Moreno, who has followed the band since 2000.
Director Bryson Roatch tells the story of the band and Mark, on their journey to do what they both love most. One scene show Mark visiting the grave of his sister, Elizabeth Santana Mercado, whom he lost to colon cancer in 2016. “She was my control switch. She could change my mood real quickly,” he explains. At Mark’s 57th Papa Roach concert, Jacoby presented him with a gift — a platinum Papa Roach plaque in honor of Elizabeth – and thanked him for his support by giving him two golden Papa Roach “Por Vida” (“For Life”) passes, good for tickets to any Papa Roach show, anywhere in the world, for free, for life.
“We knew ‘Come Around’ was one of those special songs when we got done with it. We walked away from the track and kept humming the melody to it, and it’s just one of those things that gets stuck in your head. Lyrically, this track’s about sticking with your friend through thick and thin, or your loved one, as they’re spiraling out.” Jacoby Shaddix.
Come Around is taken from Papa Roach‘s tenth album Who Do You Trust?, out now.
