Papa Roach Announces New Album

Papa Roach will release their new album, Time for Annihilation…On the Road and On the Record, on August 31. The long-titled album will be released via indie label, Eleven Seven Music. The Northern California band had been in the Universal (DreamWorks and Geffen, respectively) family for the bulk of their career, but they are enjoying their foray back into the indie world, where hands-on attention to the band will be guaranteed. For the new album, whose title is so long I get exhausted just typing it, Papa Roach enlisted veteran hitsmith David Bendeth (Paramore, Breaking Benjamin, Drowning Pool) to produce the new tracks. David Bendeth said in a statement that "working with a band like Papa Roach is every producer's dream. It is not often that you can work with a band that has played so many shows, and also knows their way around the studio, and the recording environment. Everyone came to the House of Loud to work hard and we really accomplished what we all consider to be a great record. I hope this is the first of many more for all of us!"
Singer Jacoby Shaddix also said in the same statement: "We've always wanted to capture the energy of our live shows but didn't want to do the same old thing that most bands do, so we decided to put five brand new studio tracks on the record along with some of our favorites from the road and we are really proud of the final result. As a band, we always push ourselves to evolve musically and pride ourselves on putting on an entertaining and explosive live show. Time For Annihilation captures both these elements and delivers the true essence of Papa Roach."
