"Gravity", the new video from Californian rockers PAPA ROACH, can be seen below. The clip features a guest appearance by IN THIS MOMENT frontwoman Maria brink.

PAPA ROACH frontman Jacoby Shaddix recently told Songfacts about the song: "On 'Gravity', I really put it all out there: my failures as a husband, as a lover, and as the head of my household. I talk about my brokenness, and me and my wife's relationship in some real, true story factual-type stuff. I think it's a bit of a testimony for me and my wife, like, 'Hey man, if you're another couple that's going through this struggle, you can make it through if you really want to, if you really love each other.'"

"Gravity" is taken from PAPA ROACH's latest album, "F.E.A.R.", which came out at the end of January.

Shaddix said in a recent interview that he believes rock music is "coming back pretty strong." Shaddix explained, "There's this new wave of younger, heavier bands that's coming up — OF MICE & MEN, BRING ME THE HORIZON, WE CAME AS ROMANS… with this fresh, new rock sound, but these were the kids that were listening to PAPA ROACH, KORN and DEFTONES when they were kids. And so there's kindred spirits between our bands, because they're, like, 'Yo, dude, you guys inspired us back in the day.' And we're looking at these bands, going, 'You guys are inspiring us now.'"

Shaddix continued, "I definitely feel there's a resurgence in rock. And give it another five years, and it's gonna be the biggest thing on the planet again."

The singer added that "everything's cyclical," saying, "We kind of see this resurgence of heavier-sounding bands. It's, like, cool. It's exciting."

PAPA ROACH will start a U.S. run mixing festivals and shows with GODSMACK in late April.
