Papa Roach Plan To Celebrate 20th Anniversary Of “Infest” in 2020

During a recent interview with Z93, Jacoby Shaddix confirmed that Papa Roach are planning to celebrate the 20th anniversary of “Infest“ next year. That effort will officially turn 20 on April 25, 2020.

Shaddix said the following:

“2020, we’re going to celebrate the 20-year anniversary of our album ‘Infest‘. And so, April 25th, 2020, we will be having a celebration.”

In the same interview, the singer also talked about the album’s hit single “Last Resort“ and the inspration behind it:

“Music can be a bright spot to people — it can be a source of strength; it can be a source of hope to people and Papa Roach has been a source of strength and hope to people out there.

Our first single, ‘Last Resort‘, was about… One of my best friends, he tried to kill himself. We lived in a house together. I’m 17 years old, and my best friend tried to kill himself. And it was a traumatic experience. I sing the song from a first-person point of view just to make it… this is how I write music. It’s just crazy how many people have used that song as a source of strength.

This music is purpose-driven, and I know that there’s a reason why I’m here on this planet creating music and creating art with my brothers in Papa Roach.”

Corey Taylor On His New Slipknot Mask: “I Wanted It To Feel Like It Was Something That Was Created In Someone’s Basement”

During an interview for the new issue of Kerrang!, Slipknot’s Corey Taylor talked a bit about his new mask, which he worked on with horror legend Tom Savini. The singer says he wanted to “create something uncomfortable” and that he “wanted it to feel like it was something that was created in someone’s basement.”

Taylor said the following about his inspiration for the mask:

“I’m reminded that even though you want the best for people, sometimes you’ll get the worst. I’ve been kind of made to feel like a villain, in a weird way. Which is fine. It was inevitable, and it doesn’t really bother me much. But, for a little bit, it did. I’ve always tried to be a good father, be a good man, be a good person. I went through some shit a few years ago, and in that time a lot of people had a reversal of opinion on who I was. Maybe it was because they were tired of hearing my name [laughs,] which is so fucking true – even I get to the point where I’m tired of hearing my own fucking name.”

He also added:

“I said, ‘Okay, if you want a villain, you’ll get a fucking villain.’ My vision was about trying to create something uncomfortable – not only for me to wear, but for people to look at. I wanted it to feel like it was something that was created in someone’s basement – something that was made specifically to fuck with people. It’s the representation of public opinion turning on a dime – they want to tear people down for the way they live, even if they don’t really know them. It’s been liberating to embrace that side and be like, ‘Fuck you. I really don’t give a shit what you think about me, so here’s this!’”

As previously reported, Slipknot’s new album “We Are Not Your Kind” will be released on August 9.
