During a live chat with fans yesterday, rockers Papa Roach officially announced they will release their sixth full-length studio album on October 2. The chat was hosted on the band's web site and saw frontman Jacoby Shaddix, guitarist Jerry Horton, bassist Tobin Esperance and drummer Tony Palermo interact with fans from around the world, reports Blabbermouth.net.
Papa Roach's new CD was recorded at the band's hometown studio, The Red House in Sacramento, California and was produced by rock veteran James Michael. 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 Shaddix.
Shaddix recently told American Forces Network Europe that he thinks the band has "topped ourselves again" with the new album.
Papa Roach's last full-length studio effort, "Metamorphosis", arrived in spring 2009, while half of 2010's "Time For Annihilation: On The Record & On The Road" consisted of fresh studio material as well.
