As a holiday treat to rock fans everywhere, PAPA ROACH has released the music video for "Falling Apart", the third single off the band's eighth studio album, "F.E.A.R." The disc has already spawned two hits at radio with "Face Everything And Rise", which reached #1 on the Active Rock Chart, and "Gravity", which peaked at #5, landing the band as the #8 "Most Played Active Artist" this year.Says PAPA ROACH frontman Jacoby Shaddix: "'Falling Apart' is an epic PAPA ROACH track from 'F.E.A.R.' The vocals are really straightforward, and then it explodes into that massive chorus. The audiences can't help but jump up and down when we play it. The dynamics of the song move you to three distinctively different places and Jesse Davey's video is truly a work of art and we're excited for people to interpret it how they may." "F.E.A.R." came out at the end of January. The new disc was recorded in Las Vegas, taking the band out of their Sacramento, California home base for the first time since 2006. PAPA ROACH worked with the father-and-son producing team of Kevin and Kane Churko on the new CD. Shaddix told The Pulse Of Radio that he wasn't very happy at first about going to Sin City to record. "I ended up in this city where I've had some of my greatest failures and worst decision making, and some of my biggest debacles of my life happened in Vegas, you know," he said. "And I believe I was sent back to that city to go do right this time, and we went there and I just faced that fear of living in this city that I felt was gonna eat me alive. But really and truly I just gave myself to this music 100 percent, and that's what pulled me through." Shaddix admitted that the band went into the studio this time with almost no new material prepared, explaining, "Usually when we begin working, we'll have a bunch of demos, and I'll have a bag of lyrics ready to go. We didn't have those things this time." Guitarist Jerry Horton added, "We walked into the studio with nothing. It was frightening since it was so different, but it was also liberating. Once the ball started rolling, it was a snowball effect."
