Professionally filmed video footage of Californian rockers PAPA ROACH performing their new single, "Face Everything And Rise", on October 31 at Palladium in Cologne, Germany can be seen below. The song is taken from the band's eighth full-length album, "F.E.A.R.", which will be released on January 27, 2015 via Eleven Seven Music).
PAPA ROACH singer Jacoby Shaddix told The Pulse Of Radio how the title concept for the new album came about. "I remember when we went into the studio initially, I had a bunch of butcher paper on the wall and that was the first thing I wrote on the wall, was 'FEAR,' and then underneath it, 'Face everything and rise,'" he said. "And I thought that that acronym — just the duality of that acronym and that saying just rang so true to me and I felt it had to be on the record somewhere, somehow."
"F.E.A.R." follows up 2012's "The Connection" and was recorded at The Hideout Recording Studio in Las Vegas. The band worked with two producers, Kevin Churko and Kevin's son Kane, with PAPA ROACH guitarist Jerry Horton saying, "We did the first five songs with Kevin, the dad, and then the last seven with the son, because [Kevin] had a prior engagement with IN THIS MOMENT… It was a different sort of workflow, but we got into it and it was cool. And I think we came out with some really good stuff."
Shaddix said about "Face Everything And Rise": "Fear is something I face every day. It's about taking a negative and turning it into a positive. When you see the word, it looks like Fear. If you look deeper, it's Face Everything And Rise."
