PAPA ROACH: ‘One Track Mind’ Video Released

PAPA ROACH‘s new music video for “One Track Mind”, the next single from the band’s 2010 release “Time For Annihilation… On The Road And On The Record”, can be seen below. (Note: The video stream may not be available to some non-U.S. residents.)

“Time For Annihilation… On The Road And On The Record” features a mix of live tracks and new studio cuts. PAPA ROACH frontman Jacoby Shaddix told The Pulse of Radio why the band decided to issue a live album now. “Everybody keeps going, ‘Man, you guys, you know, you guys kill it live, you guys are a great live band,’ and we were like, ‘You know what, it’s time for us to do a live record,'” he said. “And so we wrapped up 2009, we were doing dates with SHINEDOWN, and we started recording shows towards the end of that. We got nine live songs, and then we have five studio songs, and so it’s kind of like the best of both worlds.”

“Time For Annihilation” is PAPA ROACH‘s first release on Eleven Seven Music, after parting ways with Interscope/Geffen Records in 2010. Shaddix said about the move, “We wanted to work with a team who’s focused on rock music rather than pop and urban. Moving to a successful indie like Eleven Seven Music gives us that without sacrificing the manpower of a major.”

PAPA ROACH is currently working on its sixth studio album for a 2012 release. In an interview with Amy Harris, the band’s frontman Jacoby Shaddix said about their new music, “We want to separate ourselves from the pack again. When we came out in ’99 and 2000, we were like part of an underground movement and then that was really cool. Then that movement kind of fell apart and there weren’t many bands still out there doing it. So we evolved and separated ourselves again and evolved into more of a rock band. Now we have been lumped into all these rock bands and we are like, ‘Cool we like that. We like that sense of community in rock.’ But I want to evolve it into something more even of our own sound.” He added, “I wouldn’t necessarily say that is the move to make it creatively original. I just think the music we have been listening to, we have been listening to everything from honkytonk country music to electronic music to heavy metal to punk rock. I don’t want to make an average white-guy rock record. I want to make a fucking record that inspires people to fuck, fight, love, forgive. An inspiring album that makes people want to move, makes people want to do something.”
