PAPA ROACH frontman Jacoby Shaddix recently revealed to American Forces Network Europe that the band’s new studio album should be out this September. Shaddix said, “We don’t know the name of the album; we’re still going back and forth about what we feel like the album should be called. The release date is going to be sometime in September. We don’t have a date yet, but sometime in September. And the first single, we’re still trying to whittle down to the final right now.”
Shaddix added that he thinks the band has “topped ourselves again” with the new album.
PAPA ROACH‘s last full-length studio effort, “Metamorphosis”, arrived in spring 2009, while half of 2010’s “Time for Annihilation: On the Record On the Road” consisted of fresh studio material as well.
Shaddix told The Pulse Of Radio last year what the group’s goal was for its next effort. “You know, we’ve got to go back and write a record that just flips people out,” he said. “That’s the goal. We kind of want to switch up the vibe again and progress with the sound and really just make a record that’s a bit more adventurous, so we kind of want to make a record that’s got a bit more of ebb and flow to it, and a bit more of a musical journey type record.”
Fans might get to hear some of the new songs this summer when PAPA ROACH goes out on the Rockstar Energy Uproar Tour this August, alongside STAIND, SHINEDOWN, P.O.D., GODSMACK and more.
Shaddix said about the tour’s lineup, “We’ve played shows or done tours with everybody else on that bill . . . it’s going to be a great way to spend the summer.”
