PAPA ROACH SINGER ON RECORDING NEW ALBUM: ‘I WAS TERRIFIED’
Papa Roach challenged themselves in the making of their eighth studio album, F.E.A.R., and for singer Jacoby Shaddix the biggest challenge was entering the studio with almost no material ready to go.
Shaddix talks about the experience: “Oh, I was incredibly terrified. I did not want to do it like that. I’m like, ‘I can’t go there without anything.’ And Tobin our bass player’s like, ‘Dude, we got this! Don’t even trip, man. Like, we write music all the time dude, let’s just go in there and do what we do best.’ And the producer’s like, ‘Yeah, man, just come down and if it’s working, it’s working, man.’ He’s like, ‘Nine times out of 10, bands come in here and the floodgate opens.’ So I just kind of had to walk in faith on this one and go, ‘All right.'”
F.E.A.R. was recorded in Las Vegas at the studio of father-and-son producers Kevin and Kane Churko.
The new disc will be out January 27th. The title track is currently Number Eight on the rock radio chart.
Papa Roach and Seether will team up for a co-headlining North American tour that kicks off on January 9th in Orlando, Florida and winds down on February 7th in Las Vegas.
