PAPA ROACH will release its new album, "Time For Annihilation… On the Road and On the Record", on August 31 via Eleven Seven Music. The band continues to push its musical limits and is currently perfecting a unique hybrid listening experience, which will consist of a mix of new studio and live tracks. With their feet firmly planted in over 10 years of multi-format success, the album's first single, "Kick in the Teeth", is sure to ignite rockers globally. The band has enlisted veteran, hit-maker David Bendeth (PARAMORE, BREAKING BENJAMIN, DROWNING POOL) to produce the new tracks.
David Bendeth comments: "Working with a band like PAPA ROACH is every producer's dream. It is not often that you can work with a band that has played so many shows, and also knows their way around the studio, and the recording environment. Everyone came to the House Of Loud to work hard and we really accomplished what we all consider to be a great record. I hope this is the first of many more for all of us!"
"We've always wanted to capture the energy of our live shows but didn't want to do the same old thing that most bands do, so we decided to put five brand new studio tracks on the record along with some of our favorites from the road and we are really proud of the final result," says frontman Jacoby Shaddix. "As a band, we always push ourselves to evolve musically and pride ourselves on putting on an entertaining and explosive live show. 'Time For Annihilation' captures both these elements and delivers the true essence of PAPA ROACH." When asked about the move to Eleven Seven Music, Jacoby adds: "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. We are excited about the future of PAPA ROACH."
"PAPA ROACH has made a quantum leap in dynamics on the new recording. With the new studio tracks, the band has matched the intensity of their live show and truly put out a record that annihilates the listener. Their fans are in for an experience," states Frank Woodworth, General Manager for the Eleven Seven Music Group.
