PAPA ROACH Will 'Probably' Start Writing Next Album In February

November 16, 2015

Metal Wani's editor in chief Owais "Vitek" Nabi recently conducted an interview with PAPA ROACH guitarist Jerry Horton in Hannover, Germany. You can now listen to the chat in the YouTube clip below.

Asked if PAPA ROACH will continue to incorporate electronics into its sound on the band's next album, Jerry said: "I don't know if we'll necessary keep as much of the electronics. I think we'll do it where it's appropriate. But the mindset behind it has been just kind of having overdubs not be guitars, so that it's kind of a distinct instrument."

He continued: "We have talked about possibly simplifying stuff for the next album — just making the sound as huge as possible… [I mean 'huge' in terms of] heaviness, maybe some, maybe just not having so many layers, so that the individual instruments… [Making the sound more] simplified."

Jerry also talked about the progress of the songwriting sessions for PAPA ROACH's follow-up to this year's "F.E.A.R." (Face Everything And Rise). He said: "[We have started writing] a little bit — just little riffs here and there." As for a possible beginning date for the recording process, Jerry said: "I don't know about actual recording, but we'll probably start writing in February."

"F.E.A.R." was recorded in Las Vegas, taking PAPA ROACH out of their Sacramento, California home base for the first time since 2006. PAPA ROACH worked with the father-and-son producing team of Kevin and Kane Churko on the effort.
