And yeah, we just did things that like are so far out of our normal orbit of experience as a band." premiere of the eight-part HBO documentary, also called Sonic Highways, which chronicles the making of the album.

  • BIG CHANGES ON PAPA ROACH'S EIGHTH ALBUM

    Papa Roach's upcoming eighth studio album, F.E.A.R. (Face Everything And Rise), was a bit of a departure from the band's usual creative method. They recently discussed their process with Blabbermouth and revealed a bit of what fans can expect from the news tracks.

    Lead singer Jacoby Shaddix said, "Usually when we begin working, we'll have a bunch of demos, and I'll have a bag of lyrics ready to go. We didn't have those things this time. When we were touring 'The Connection', I was really focused on keeping my life together. Every time I would go on the road, I'd start clean and come home a mess. I let the road tear me apart. This time, I focused on keeping my relationships strong, my sober self healthy, and my spiritual life healthy. I didn't have time to write, to be honest." Bassist Tobin Esperance added, "We wanted to do things a little bit differently. During the last record, the four of us had reconnected and gotten closer. We were in such a good place, so we all helped each other out on this one. There was no pressure. There were no expectations. We chose to work with somebody we'd never worked with before, go to a place we'd never lived previously, not worry, write songs from scratch, and have fun. We didn't overthink it. It was simple, and it f***ing worked."

    • The band worked with father and son producers Kevin and Kane Churko on the album which features guest appearances by Maria Brink of In This Moment and rapper Royce da 5'9".
    • It was recorded in Las Vegas instead of in their hometown studio in Sacramento.
    • The band also lived together while making the record which they have not done since 2006's The Paramour Sessions.
    • F.E.A.R. (Face Everything And Rise) will be released on January 27, 2015.

    Track Listing:
    01. Face Everything And Rise
    02. Skeletons
