PAPA ROACH: Video Interview With JACOBY SHADDIX Available

June 10, 2009

A six-minute interview with PAPA ROACH frontman Jacoby Shaddix conducted by the Bala Cynwyd, Pennsylvania radio station 93.3 WMMR on May 17, 2009 at the MMRBQ 2009 can be viewed below.

PAPA ROACH will follow up its chart-topping single "Lifeline" with another song from its recent "Metamorphosis" album called "I Almost Told You That I Loved You". The group just finished shooting a music video for the track and Shaddix told The Pulse of Radio the story behind the song. "That song was born from a conversation that me and this fella Matt Zane — he's a musician but he also directs pornography films — and he was telling me about this girl. He was trying out the talent before he put her on camera, and he was like, 'Oh, Jacoby, man, the pussy was so good I almost told her that I loved her.' Me and Jay Baumgardner, the producer, looked at each other and we were like, 'Now that's a song title right there!'"

"Lifeline" was PAPA ROACH's second No. 1 hit, following its 2000 breakthrough single, "Last Resort".

"Metamorphosis", the band's fifth major label release, came out in March.

PAPA ROACH has recently been working with a charity called Loaves And Fishes in its hometown of Sacramento, California that helps families losing their homes due to the current economy. More information can be found at sacloaves.org.

The group will spend all of June in Europe before beginning its opening stint for NICKELBACK on July 10 in Darien Center, New York.
