On Monday, August 30, Jared from Rockerrazzi.com conducted an interview with Californian rockers PAPA ROACH. You can now watch the chat below.
PAPA ROACH released its new half-studio/half-live album, "Time For Annihilation...On The Road and On The Record", on Tuesday (August 31). The band went into the studio earlier this year to record five brand new songs for the set, but frontman Jacoby Shaddix admitted to The Pulse of Radio that he was having problems staying sober at the time. "I was kind of out of my mind, partying and drinking and, you know, carrying on like I was for a minute and lost my confidence as a writer and as a musician for a minute, and then halfway through, cleaned my act up," he said. "I think it was more pressure that was tripping me out, you know, I've never really felt like that too much before, but then cleaned my act up and then laid down some rad vocals that I'm really proud of."
Shaddix had been clean and sober for at least five years before this, and recently celebrated his fifth month being sober again.
The first single from "Time For Annihilation..." is called "Kick In The Teeth".
"Time For Annihilation" is PAPA ROACH's first release on Eleven Seven Music, after parting ways with Interscope/Geffen Records earlier this year.
The band visited the Los Angeles Mission on Tuesday to serve meals to the homeless as part of the band's continuing partnership with the WhyHunger organization.
PAPA ROACH will hit the road for a fall U.S. tour with SKILLET beginning on October 1 in North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
