Rock berserkers and multi hit-makers Papa Roach have announced the title to their hotly anticipated upcoming fall album. The Connection is set for release on October 2nd on Eleven Seven Music. 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) and John Feldmann (Panic at the Disco, The Used, Escape the Fate). Last month, Papa Roach gave fans details on their sixth album during a live chat, hosted on the band's website which saw frontman Jacoby Shaddix, guitarist Jerry Horton, bassist Tobin Esperance and drummer Tony Palermo interact with fans from around the world. The first single from The Connection is a track called "Still Swingin," which many fans may have heard during last night's Major League Baseball All Stars Home Run Derby on ESPN. The track will be featured by ESPN/MLB in select games/events for the next few weeks. "Still Swingin" officially impacts at radio on July 24. To hear a snippet of the track and catch some behind-the-scenes footage of the band filming its video in New York City, go to the bottom of this page. Known for their electrifying and explosive live shows, Papa Roach have become the common denominator for some of the most successful rock tours in recent years and have critics worldwide hailing them as "the best live band." With their feet firmly planted in over 10 years of multi-format success, Papa Roach's Time For Annihilation...On the Record and On the Road (Eleven Seven Music, August 2010) debuted as the #1 Independent Rock, #23 Top 200, #4 Hard Rock and #5 Alternative Album on Billboard's charts. The album's singles, "Kick In The Teeth" and "Burn" both remained in the Top 5 at the active rock radio format for over 8 weeks straight, joining 8 additional Top10 hits throughout the band's career with songs such as "Last Resort" and "Scars."

    Yes, I would say a lot of people. I agree that they do have some very generic songs, but they also have some great songs. The article makes a very good point, they are amazing live. I honestly didn't care for them that much until I saw them live. Now I've seen them 3 times. Hell of a show.

    I can't even look at pictures of Papa Roach without feeling some sadness for what they've become. I still have to pinch myself and spin Lovehatetragedy every once in awhile to remember that this band did actually write some good songs at one point and then I saw the video for "Getting Away With Murder" and Jacoby began wearing mascara and then the rest of the band started wearing mascara and it was all downhill from there. They pulled a Linkin Park and got out of that nu-metal label as soon as they sensed its demise. Don't blame them for doing it (neither Linkin Park, you gotta do what you gotta do), but I just don't like the direction either of them took. Oh well...

    Yeah. Anyone who's seen them live. The P-Roach have been touring and making music since the late 90s, thats alot longer than alot of people realize. They're also one of the few remaining hard rock bands that are carrying that "los angeles sleaze-glam-hard rock vibe" which was started by other bands in the 80s. They're one of the few bands that can tour with Motley Crue AND Linkin Park and not seem completely out of place. Hard rock isn't "generic" when you're comparing it to other "hard rock." However, if you're 17 and comparing it to the latest screamo or metalcore flavor of the week and calling it "dated" you're obviously missing the point.

    Paramore sessions was their overall best album they pull off different styles of music n if anything they're smart they know fans don't wanna hear the same songs over n over with the exception of ac/dc

    Massive soft spot for them as they were my first gig and I have to agree on the live show, look at any video on Youtube, you won't find a single one where Jacoby is giving 100%. Music, not so great but they love what they do, so more power to them.

    they were one of the first rock bands i listened to. im not ashamed to say that the riff in last resort made is one of the riffs i had to learn as a kid. i hope the new cd is just as good as the others

    Generic music is the most popular, liked music out there. Country music sales outnumber all other sales, and you can't get more generic than that.
