Papa Roach are currently in the studio working on their new album and frontman Jacoby Shaddix recently discussed the material with Shroom of WEBN. According to him, some of the new music is “really aggressive and abrasive and angry, and some of it is very self-reflective.”
Shaddix said the following:
“This stuff is fire. It feels so good to be back in and creating music with the guys. Especially ’cause we’re not on the road, it’s a good thing for us to do is to get together and live our purpose. Creating is, I believe, my life’s purpose — writing songs and connecting with people through music.
The stuff is, some of it’s really aggressive and abrasive and angry, and some of it is very self-reflective as well in the sense of, like, I’m really digging deep into some stuff.”
He also added the following about a new song that he wrote for his father:
“We just finished up a song yesterday. It’s called ‘No Apologies’, and it’s a song I wrote to my father in the sense of forgiveness for what we’ve been through as a father and son in our lives and how we’ve kind of just not really been connected. It was very healing for me. I can’t wait to go find that old man and play him that song and just have that moment of closure and healing for us. I think that’s important, and the music gives us that opportunity.”
