ARTISTdirect.com sat down with Papa Roach frontman Jacoby Shaddix and guitarist Jerry Horton to discuss their blistering and intensely personal new album The Connection for the latest installment of our exclusive See the Music series.
We go so deep we reached marrow.
Shaddix says that the new album is bolstered by some of "the fire" that the band has been known for since day one.
He also reveals that the album and key songs are snapshots of himself during some of his most desperate times.
Through the process of recording the album, he went through a lot personally, and it reflects in the music. His journey has never been so palpable and powerful on tape.
Once again, the music becomes the perfect channel for his emotions—and ours!
This is one of the best hard rock records of the year, and we were honored to talk to the boys about it!
So settle in and listen to Papa Roach discuss stand out tracks "Before I Die," "The Walking Dead" and more as well as the general flow of The Connection.
