Papa Roach have always had a close bond with their fanbase, so when the Make-A-Wish Foundation came knocking asking the band to participate in making one special fan’s dream come true, they were more than willing to be a part of the experience.
A teenage fan name Mark Guerra, who is currently battling a brain tumor, had a rock-inspired wish for his band Breaking Boundaryz to record an EP with Papa Roach. The end goal was to be able to showcase the EP to a record label.
Papa Roach stepped things up making the wish a multi-day affair. P-Roach kicked things off rockstar style by inviting Mark, his family and bandmates to New York City. They started with dinner with the band and then were treated to VIP access to the Papa Roach show that night in Sayreville, N.J.
The next day Guerra and his band hit the studio with Papa Roach to record their EP and on the third day Papa Roach brought Breaking Boundaryz to visit their label Eleven Seven Music.
Papa Roach and Eleven Seven Music had another surprise in store for the young rocker though; the label announced that they were going to release his EP digitally with a percentage of the profits to benefit the Make-A-Wish foundation.
The whole experience was captured by Fuse.
