Papa Roach Release New Songs “Who Do You Trust?” & “Renegade Music”

Papa Roach have released two new songs including “Who Do You Trust?” and “Renegade Music.” Both tracks are expected to appear on the band’s new album, which will be released in early 2019. You can find an official video for “Who Do You Trust?” and a stream of “Renegade Music” below. Jacoby Shaddix said the following about “Who Do You Trust?”:

“This song is a statement of engagement. In this day and age, who do you trust? The message of the song is to think for yourself and to trust in yourself, and the imagery of the song matches that. It’s the sea of information, all of if slightly out of focus – and you’re left floating in trying to decide for yourself. Who do you trust?”

Papa Roach Planning To Release New Music This Week

Papa Roach have announced that they will be releasing a new song on Friday (October 5). The track will be the first single from the band’s upcoming album, which will be released early next year.

Jacoby Shaddix commented:

“The new album is full of fresh Papa Roach. It’s really inspiring – to be continuing our musical momentum and dropping new music so soon after the release of our last album. We’re so proud of the progression we’ve been experiencing, and I promise you it’s just the beginning.”

The following statement was also posted on the band’s Facebook:

“Papa Roach will release new music this Friday October 5th. The release will mark the band’s first new tracks since 2017’s album “Crooked Teeth” and is the first release from their forthcoming 10th studio album, due for release in early 2019. 😋”

Papa Roach Are Almost Done With Their New Album

It looks like Papa Roach are almost done with their new album. During a recent interview with Rock Sound, Jacoby Shaddix said the band are going to record one more song and that the effort should be out “later this year or early next year.”

Shaddix said the following about the effort:

“We did work with the same producers [Nicholas ‘RAS’ Furlong and Colin Brittain] that did ‘Crooked Teeth’. So this is like the follow-up and it feels great. We played a bunch of tracks for our friends in BEARTOOTH and some other folks last night, and everybody was feeling it. So it’s exciting to play new music for people and they’re, like, vibing it. So it felt good. Unless they’re totally bullshitting us. And if that’s the case, they are great bullshitters.”

He also added:

“We have a rhythm going with [Furlong and Brittain]. We were supposed to go on tour with OF MICE & MEN at the beginning of the ‘Crooked Teeth’ record cycle, and Austin [Carlile, then-OF MICE & MEN singer] had gotten really sick. And so the tour was canceled. So we were, like, ‘All right. Well, if we’re not gonna be out on the road, let’s go create.’ So we went in and we created five or six songs then. And then we went back in June and July and took another stab at it, and we have 12 songs that are… There’s bangers in there. We’re gonna go back and do one more track and see if we can beat one of the songs. And we’ll have a full-length record ready to go. And so either later this year or early next year for a release.”

Jerry Horton Says Papa Roach Are “About 85 Percent Finished” With Their New Album

During a chat with Morgan Richards Interviews, Jerry Horton revealed that Papa Roach are “about 85 percent finished” making their new album and that it will arrive “either at the end of this year or the beginning of next year.” He also added the following about the effort:

“We’re at the point, I think, in our career where we want to… we’re really trying to explore more dynamics now and not just be a wall of guitars all the time. So you can do that, but if it’s loud all the time, then you don’t know when it’s supposed to be loud and when it’s supposed not to be loud. So we’re trying to balance and trying to get some more impact, and I think we started that off really well with [the ‘Crooked Teeth’ song] ‘Help’ — and ‘Born For Greatness’ was another one. We’re trying to imagine how it’s gonna go [over] live, when we write the song. So that’s kind of how ‘Born For Greatness’ happened, where we were just, like, ‘We want something that people can bounce to.’ So we’re continuing that on the next one. And it’s been really good.”

Papa Roach Have “13 Or 14 Songs Written And Recorded” For New Album

Papa Roach’s Jacoby Shaddix was recently interviewed by Andy Hall of the Lazer 103.3 radio station and offered an update on the band’s new album. According to him, they already have “13 or 14 songs written and recorded.”

Shaddix said the following:

“Right when we got done with ‘Crooked Teeth’, writing and recording that record, we were supposed to go out on tour with OF MICE & MEN, but Austin [Carlile], the singer [of OF MICE & MEN], was really sick at the time. And so instead of going out on tour, we were, like, ‘Let’s just go back in the studio and start writing.’ So we started our first sessions for this album we’re working on early last year, and then we went and toured on ‘Crooked Teeth’, and then we came back and jumped in the studio June and July of this year with all fresh ideas. We have, like, 13 or 14 songs written and recorded, and we feel we have a lot of really great material.”

He also added the following about the musical direction:

“I think ‘Crooked Teeth’ was kind of, like, ‘Here’s the reintroduction of who P. ROACH is,’ and with this new album that we’re working on and writing, it really feels like we’re making a pretty bold evolution of the band again. And it’s a little frightening in a sense at times — like, ‘Oh, man. Are people gonna get it?’ But then we still have the core sound of the band on the record as well. There’s a few songs that we’re challenging our fans, like, ‘Hey, are you gonna come down this road with us?’ And the material we’re writing we just feel is just great — it’s so inspiring and just unique and different and rocking and anthemic and passionate. It’s, like, undeniable.

“I feel like when we wrote the album ‘Getting Away With Murder’ [2004], it was a pretty bold evolution for the band, especially with a song like ‘Scars’ at the time for our band. Now when you think of ‘Scars’ and PAPA ROACH, that’s like the norm; that’s who we are. So I’d say the evolution is comparable to that.”
