PAPA ROACH Frontman Interviewed By NME TV

NME TV recently conducted an interview with vocalist Jacoby Shaddix of Californian rockers PAPA ROACH. You can now watch the chat in two parts below.

PAPA ROACH has unveiled the details of a fall U.S. tour with SKILLET that will begin on October 1 in North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, winding down on October 20 in Oklahoma City. TRAPT and MY DARKEST DAYS will also appear on the bill. Before that, PAPA ROACH will play some gigs on its own and hit some festivals as the band rolls out its new half-studio/half-concert release, "Time For Annihilation... On The Record And On The Road".

Shaddix told that the new album "connects all the dots. It's essentially an EP plus a live album, so it's like the best of both worlds."

Shaddix revealed that when the band's label suggested adding studio cuts to the nine live tracks already planned for the album, the group wanted to record fresh music instead of digging out previously existing, unreleased songs.

The singer said that with the album's five new tunes, "We wanted to go with a little bit more of a modern sound. On the last couple records we really discovered the rock 'n' roll band within PAPA ROACH, and this time around we . . . started fucking around with sequencing and loops and beats and stuff like that. I think it's just a breath of fresh air for us."

"Time For Annihilation" is due out next Tuesday (August 31). The first single, "Kick In The Teeth", is No. 9 on the Active Rock chart.
