Papa Roach frontman Jacoby Shaddix says new songs ‘snap audiences off like no other’

Heavy-duty rockers Papa Roach are hard at work on their latest full-length, the follow-up to the band’s high-octane 2010 live set and studio EP, “Time for Annihilation…on the Record and on the Road.” Need proof? The gentlemen posted a photo from the studio on their official Facebook page earlier this week.

Papa Roach frontman Jacoby Shaddix told Audio Ink Radio last year that the guys were road testing their new songs, and the response has been stellar. “We’ve been out on the road and playing the brand new songs in the set, and the fans go off,” he exclaimed. “They snap audiences off like no other, so we’re really stoked about the direction and sound of the band, as well!”

As for what to expect on the new album, try lots of no frills rock and roll. “We’re no frills. We’re one of those rock bands that’s just rip-and-roar, in-your-face rock ‘n’ roll,” Shaddix said. “You can have all the explosions in the world, but if you have kicking rock songs and you know how to command an audience, that’s all you need. Those are two things that we have up our sleeves. I’m not trying to be cocky; I’m just saying we pride ourselves on our live rock ‘n’ roll show. That’s something that we’ve worked really hard over the years to develop.

“We’ve got a rep in the business as one of those bands that rips it, and we’ve got to uphold that. Staking our claim to rock ‘n’ roll and making a tour that makes people want to come back and see us again and again. We do not want to let the fans down at all. And we will not.”
