ANNOUNCE THEIR 10TH STUDIO ALBUM, 'WHO DO YOU TRUST?'  DUE FOR RELEASE JANUARY 18TH, 2019

 

Alternative-rock quartet Papa Roach announce their highly-anticipated 10th studio album, Who Do You Trust? will be released on January 18, 2019 through Eleven Seven Music HERE and on vinyl. The pre-order comes with three instant track downloads “Who Do You Trust,” “Renegade Music” and their latest release, “ Not The Only One.”  
 
The 12-track anthemic album Who Do You Trust? features the band’s signature heavy rhythmic guitars and catchy hooks on “Who Do You Trust” and “Renegade Music” with “Not The Only One” supplying  melody and emotionally-charged lyrics. The album is produced by Nick “RAS” Furlong and Colin Cunningham except for “Top Of The World” which is produced by Jason Evigan .
 
“Our goal for our 10th album was to push ourselves even further into genres that inspire us most. We have reached the place where we always wanted to be, creating new and exciting music.”
– Bassist Tobin Esperance
 
Papa Roach have been one of the top leaders in alternative rock for nearly 20 years and continue to impact that space with Who Do You Trust? The two-time GRAMMY nominated band have sold over 20 million records worldwide, gained over 2 billion streams to date and charted with 17 Top 5 hit singles on Billboard.

“Not The Only One” follows last month’s release of new tracks “Renegade Music” and “Who Do You Trust? ”  which were lauded by fans and critics alike. The official music video for the single, Who Do You Trust? has already surpassed 2 million views.

 

The tracks see Papa Roach continue to push their momentum with bona-fide rock anthems and fearsome hooks. Frontman Jacoby Shaddix explains, “ This song is a statement of engagement - In this day and age, who do you trust? The message of the song is to think for yourself and to trust in yourself, and the imagery of the song matches that. It’s the sea of information, all of if slightly out of focus - and you’re left floating in trying to decide for yourself. Who do you trust?"

Papa Roach have been praised by their peers in the rock world for achieving an “unlikely comeback”, with two decades of continued success and a career resurgence with their 2017 release, Crooked Teeth, which debuted in the Top 20 on the US, UK and Australian charts.   Whereas a multitude of their former counterparts have either become nostalgia acts or fallen off the grid entirely, Papa Roach are finding ways to reverse their trajectory…The sky is the limit for a band who play their cards right and are willing to kick down a few walls.”
 

PAPA ROACH SAYS NO TO WAR, NO TO HATE- WATCH: “AMERICAN DREAMS” (OFFICIAL VIDEO)

 

Papa Roach pulls no punches when it comes to politics. Earlier this year, the multi-platinum, award winning icons of alternative hard rock made headlines for taking on Paul Ryan in defense of the Affordable Care Act, but it’s “American Dreams,” the latest single off their ninth LP Crooked Teeth, where Papa Roach goes all in on the current state of America’s political affairs.
 
“America is struggling, America is divided, America is hurting right now,” explains Papa Roach frontman Jacoby Shaddix. “We’re at a fever pitch of confusion, smoke and mirrors, blatant lies. The American Dream is on the chopping block.
 
“Have you ever thought that war was a sickness?” asks the lifelong pacifist in the lyrics for the track. “My father is a Vietnam veteran. Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and the disintegration of the American family are things I've dealt with personally. I know other people relate.”
 
Today the band reveals the official video for the new LP’s second single, “American Dreams” which went Top-10  at Active Rock this week, holding steady at #8. Shot in Shaddix’s rural Northern California hometown of Sacramento, the video was Produced and Directed by Bryson Roatch, and features a cast of real life Americans fighting to create their own version of the elusive American Dream and addresses many of the issues preventing them from attaining that dream.

Papa Roach Tour Dates & Tickets

 

Papa Roach’s last visit to the UK saw them celebrate the 15th anniversary of their generation defining album ‘Infest’ by playing it in full to a crammed London’s Roundhouse.  Kerrang were impressed with “the ecstatic crowd reaction”  in their 5K review whilst Metal Hammer thought they were ‘the most consistently relevant and on-point survivors of the nu-metal era” in their 9/10 review.
 
Papa Roach have also just released an official video for ‘Periscope’, the moody ballad featuring singer/songwriter Skylar Grey .

 

The video was directed by award-winning firm The Uprising Creative (Rihanna, Justin Timberlake, Big Sean, Lil Jon) who cited the inspiration for the video was “to create a moody, different look for the band using a stylistic light exploration”.

“Periscope” is inspired by the realization that sometimes within a relationship you might not be worth being loved or that the other person may not be worth your love, and the struggle within that— how much effort it takes to make things work,” says Papa Roach lead vocalist Jacoby Shaddix.  “One part that I think is really meaningful in the video is when Skylar and I are in the shot at the same time, yet we’re not engaging with each other.  It represents the ‘disconnection’ with two people, which is very much what the lyrics describe.” Grey adds, “You are loving someone from a distance, not able to reach them.” 
 
The band has already released the songs “Crooked Teeth” and “Help”  (which featured as Radio 1’s ‘Rockest Record’) both of which struck a chord with critics and fans alike.

The album was recorded at Steakhouse Studio in North Hollywood, California, with production from Nicholas “RAS” Furlong and Colin Brittain with the exception of ‘Born For Greatness’, which saw Papa Roach collaborate with writer / producer Jason Evigan. Frontman Jacoby Shaddix said: “The first time we met up with RAS and Colin, they said that 2000's Infest was on constant rotation when they were growing up and they wanted to bring back some of that fire.”

RELEASE OF THEIR NINTH STUDIO ALBUM “CROOKED TEETH” - OUT MAY 19th

PRE-ORDER IS AVAILABLE TODAY!

Papa Roach announce the May 19th release of their ninth-studio album, “Crooked Teeth” via Eleven Seven Music. The band has already given fans of taste of album with the November release of the title track (listen HERE) and the explosive new single “Help,” (listen HERE) both of which will be instantly available to those who pre-order the album on iTunes (Standard or Deluxe) TODAY!  Crooked Teeth will be available digitally and physically, as a standard (10 tracks) and deluxe (10 tracks + 3 brand new tracks + 16 Live tracks Live at the Fillmore Detroit) editions (see details below).
 
“Help” burst on to the radio waves and streaming services earlier this month by debuting as #1 Most Added at Active Rock and is currently #6 with 4 million streams.  The band previously released the first their first new music at the end of 2016 with the release of “Crooked Teeth,” which boasts ‘old school’ Papa Roach attitude, paired with an 808 bass drop into a metal breakdown. 
 
Written and recorded in a cramped North Hollywood studio, Crooked Teeth was produced by first timers Nicholas “RAS” Furlong and Colin Brittain, with the exception of “Born for Greatness,” which saw the band collaborate with writer/producer Jason Evigan (Jason Derulo, Demi Lovato, Zedd, Maroon 5) for this positive, pulsating anthem.  Furlong and Brittain, who grew up listening to Papa Roach, inspired the band to revisit some of the traits that personally endeared the band to them, most notably Shaddix's remarkable rapping technique and the bands intense live energy.
 
“The first time we met up with RAS and Colin, they said that [2000's] Infest was on constant rotation when they were growing up and they wanted to bring back some of that fire,” says Shaddix.  Adds Furlong, “The whole idea was to take the classic elements of Papa Roach that everyone loved and revamp them into a modern version of the sound through the creative process, and we ended up with a bold, courageous and more adventurous version of Papa Roach.” 
 
The Furlong/Brittain production team worked to bring in elements of music from different genres and parts of the world, and pockets of rhythm people associate more with rap or reggae, while still staying true to Papa Roach's sound. “The people who have wanted to hear me rap for years are gonna love some of the viciousness on this record,” Shaddix proclaims.
 
From the instantly infectious nature of the title track to the atmospheric sheen of the moody ballad “Periscope” (featuring Skylar Grey) and the acoustic/ hip-hop rock mashup of “Sunrise Trailer Park” (featuring Machine Gun Kelly adding a verse to Shaddix’ rap) “Crooked Teeth” displays the various sides of Papa Roach and illustrates why they've managed to remain relevant while other musical trends ebb and flow. “We didn't go into this album with the intention of trying to write radio singles,” guitarist Jerry Horton explains. “This collection of songs was really about bookending everything that we’ve done prior to this album and reintroducing Papa Roach to people who didn't realize the depth that we have,” says drummer Tony Palermo.
 
In many ways making “Crooked Teeth” reminded Shaddix of the band's earliest days, well before they sold millions of albums and became a household name.  “When we were in the rehearsal space I wasn’t thinking about who I needed to impress, I was thinking about how much I love making music with the guys in this band.”  “It [the album] feels honest and pure and that’s all we could hope for,” adds bassist Tobin Esperance.

Papa Roach Premiere Video For New Track 'Help'

Papa Roach have given fans a taste of their forthcoming ninth album with a video for their new single ‘Help’ and is available across all digital streaming platforms via Eleven Seven Music. The new album is expected to be released in May.

“Help” was produced by Nicholas “Ras” Furlong and Colin Brittian, who grew up listening to Papa Roach and inspired the band to revisit some of their early influences.  “We really followed our instincts and tried something unproven,” explains Furlong.  “We ended up morphing the band’s best ‘old school’ traits into a courageous and more adventurous version of Papa Roach in the 21stCentury.” Lyrically the new offering, touches on the personal, yet relatable, theme that surrounds the universal struggle of surviving mental health issues.
 
Papa Roach teased fans late last year with the viral release of “Crooked Teeth”, which is nearing 2M streams on Spotify. Featuring one of the album’s more unorthodox moments—the 808 bass drop into a metal breakdown, “Crooked Teeth” hit the online community, exciting fans all over the world who are expecting an album as dynamic as their classics INFEST and Getting Away with Murder.

Papa Roach will be heading out on a Canadian tour with Sum 41 during April, followed by a handful of US festival dates.  More dates will be announced soon via their website: www.paparoach.com/tour
