Papa Roach’s Jacoby Shaddix: “We’re Not Gonna Drop A New Album And Tour Until 2022”

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.”

Papa Roach Release New Version Of “Broken As Me” Featuring Asking Alexandria’s Danny Worsnop

Papa Roach have released a new version of “Broken As Me“ featuring Asking Alexandria’s Danny Worsnop. The original version of the track appeared on the band’s 2015 album “F.E.A.R.” The updated take on the track will appear on their new greatest hits compilation, “Greatest Hits Vol. 2: The Better Noise Years,“ which is set to be released on March 19.

Jacoby Shaddix said the following about working with Worsnop:

“He’s been on our list for a while and having just toured together, we thought of Danny first when listening to some of the deeper cuts on the album. With the pandemic in full swing, Danny was down right away. He’s one of the best vocalists in rock music, so we’re happy he said yes.”

Worsnop added:

“Making music with my friends is something I always love and enjoy so when Jacoby called me about doing something together I was in right away. The Papa Roach guys have been close friends for a long time now and I’m glad they were able to see that the only thing holding them back from stardom all these years was not having me sing on a new version of one of their songs. I think this is really going to put them on the map and from the bottom of my heart, they’re welcome!”

Jacoby Shaddix Says Papa Roach Are “A Little Over Three-Quarters Of The Way Finished” With Their New Album

During a recent appearance on the “Lipps Service With Scott Lipps” podcast, Jacoby Shaddix offered an update on the new Papa Roach album. According to him, the effort is “a little over three-quarters of the way finished.”

Shaddix said the following:

“We’ve just been doing [it] piecemeal. We’ll quarantine, and then we’ll meet up at an Arbnb somewhere, ’cause I’m not going down to L.A. right now; I just don’t wanna be a part of what’s going on.”

He also added:

“We’re a little over three-quarters of the way finished with the record, and we’re looking at dropping music later this year. I’ve got a bunch of remixes and guest features that I’ve done as well through the pandemic that are coming. So there’s new things that we’re gonna be dropping all year, which will wind up into early 2022 with a brand new record. And I’m telling you, man, this fucking music, it’s so inspired. It’s got such a great energy. We just did a collab yesterday with our homie Jason Aalon from FEVER 333. And it’s fire, dude. It’s awesome like punk rock BEASTIE BOYS.”

Papa Roach And Jeris Johnson Share Official Music Video For “Reloaded” Version Of “Last Resort”

Papa Roach and Jeris Johnson have now shared an official music video for their “reloaded” version of “Last Resort.” You can check that out below:

Papa Roach’s Jacoby Shaddix previously commented:

“It was amazing to hear that Jeris connected with the track the same way people all over the world have. That conversation of ‘Last Resort’ and its impact on all types of people hasn’t stopped for 20 years, and we were stoked to ‘Reload’ it for a new generation to keep that conversation going”

Johnson added:

“‘Last Resort (Reloaded)’ is a song surrounded by magic. The original ‘Last Resort’ is one of the most impactful and loved songs from an entire generation of music (and my childhood). There is an energy to that song that has just made it a living breathing art form at this point. After I remixed it and threw it up on TikTok, the last thing I expected was that I’d end up in the studio with Papa Roach a couple weeks later. The reaction and reception was so overwhelming that me (a random kid on TikTok) got the attention of a legacy band and the invitation to team up and remake ‘Last Resort’ for an entirely new generation. I don’t give a fuck what anyone says, that’s magic.”

Tony Palermo On Upcoming Papa Roach Album: “This One’s Fire”

During a recent interview with Iowa’s Rock 108, Papa Roach’s Tony Palermo discussed the band’s upcoming album. The drummer said that he has already “finished 15 or so new drum tracks” and that the new material is “fire.”

Palermo said the following:

“A couple of weeks ago, I just finished 15 or so new drum tracks for all the new songs. We’ve been kind of posting stuff about it, so it’s not a secret. Obviously, being quarantined, we’re trying to get creative, and what can we do with this time? And it’s, like, well, no better time than to write a record.”

He continued when asked about the musical direction:

“I say this with every record, ’cause it’s always exciting to write and record music, but this one’s fire, man. It just has some deep cuts on it. And oh, man, it feels so good to play drums too. I had a great session. Jacoby’s rapping some more. It seems like his raps on this — he’s… I don’t wanna say angrier, but he’s got more intensity behind his raps. He has a lot to be concerned about now, and expressing your mind through music is one thing that he loves to do. Lyricists are always looking for that inspiration, and there’s been an overabundance of that this year.”

He also added the following when asked about possible release plans:

“I’m not sure, actually. Jacoby is down right now in L.A., just finishing up some vocals, and then we’ll go through the mixing and mastering process and all that. But normally, these things don’t come out [until] six months after the recording process. Obviously, a single will be out before. And I wanna be optimistic and say I’m hearing a few things about maybe, possibly summer touring of next year. If this vaccine kind of holds and if people are willing to take it… We’ll see what happens. We have to have something out before we tour.”
