During a recent interview with Rock Antenne, Papa Roach’s Jacoby Shaddix revealed that the band are waiting to release their new album until they can tour again in 2022. However, he went on to say that the group have already recorded about 14 songs and that they might start working on another new record.
Shaddix said the following:
“The touring is not coming back for the rest of this year. I mean, there’ll be some pop-up shows here and there, but we’re not gonna drop a new album and tour until 2022. We’re just gonna wait it out.”
He also added:
“Now that we’re at this point in the process, it’s February, and I’m, like, ‘Okay. Maybe we’ll just go record another record. So then it’s, like, when we come out, we’ll have just a ton of music to drop and just be lined up to rip it for a while. Because the creative process is integral to all of our sanity. My bass player, Tobin [Esperance], he writes one or two songs a day — he just rips ’em out, churns ’em out. And I’ve got this little space right here that I’m in — this is my little spot where I’ll demo up ideas and stuff. It’s important for us to maintain some element of creativity so we feel like we have purpose.”
