During a live chat with fans today, rockers Papa Roach officially announced they will release their sixth full length studio album on October 2, 2012. The chat was hosted on the band’s website and saw frontman Jacoby Shaddix, guitarist Jerry Horton, bassist Tobin Esperance and drummer Tony Palermo interact with fans from around the world. The new album was recorded at the band’s hometown studio, The Red House in Sacramento, CA and was produced by rock veteran James Michael (Sixx:A.M., Halestorm). The album title and track listing have yet to be announced.
“We wanted to make a dynamic and explosive record that captures the raw emotions of life. We also wanted to incorporate the biological sounds of rock with a digital edge to have a fresh sound. This is our own version of what we think the radio should sound like. This is the soundtrack to my life and once again I went through some dark shit and came through thanks to the music,” says Jacoby Shaddix.
The announcement follows the band’s ruthless canvassing of the globe in support of their highly acclaimed Time For Annihilation…On The Record and On The Road, which New York Postproclaimed “Papa’s On Fire” and hailed as one of the “most appealing concept albums of the year.” Papa Roach will also be joining this year’s Uproar tour.
