Papa Roach release their latest studio album, ‘The Connection,’ on July 24

The hard rock boys of Papa Roach are back with a new single, “Still Swinging,” packed with guts and swagger. The music video for the single is in post-production, and fans who are curious about what to expect from the clip will find details in a new online video that features behind-the-scenes footage from the video shoot for “Still Swinging,” which comes off the group’s upcoming full-length, “The Connection.”

In the two-minute video, Papa Roach frontman Jacoby Shaddix says that the idea for the video actually came from his 7-year-old son. The clip features footage of the band rocking on a rooftop in Brooklyn, N.Y., and packs plenty of energy. “I kinda gave [director David Brodsky ] a…rundown of what my seven-year-old son had told me about an idea for a music video,” Shaddix said. “We have a video that’s riddled with zombies. I’m really into zombies.” He added that the video captures the spirit of Papa Roach: “We are still swinging. We are still killing it. This video, I think, just captures the spirit of that.”

“Still Swinging” will be added to radio on July 24, and “The Connection” is set to hit stores and online outlets on Oct. 2.
