Multi-platinum, Grammy-nominated Papa Roach have announced plans for their new album, Time For Annihilation...On the Road and On the Record on August 31st and their move to Top Independent Rock label, Eleven Seven Music. Papa Roach continue to push their musical limits and are currently perfecting a unique hybrid listening experience, which will consist of a mix of new studio and live tracks. With their feet firmly planted in over 10 years of multi-format success, the albums first single "Kick in the Teeth" is sure to ignite rockers globally. The band has enlisted Veteran, hit-maker David Bendeth (Paramore, Breaking Benjamin, Drowning Pool) to produce the new tracks.
David Bendeth adds, "Working with a band like Papa Roach is every producers dream. It is not often that you can work with a band that has played so many shows, and also knows their way around the studio, and the recording environment. Everyone came to the House Of Loud to work hard and we really accomplished what we all consider to be a great record. I hope this is the first of many more for all of us!"
"We've always wanted to capture the energy of our live shows but didn't want to do the same old thing that most bands do, so we decided to put five brand new studio tracks on the record along with some of our favorites from the road and we are really proud of the final result. As a band, we always push ourselves to evolve musically and pride ourselves on putting on an entertaining and explosive live show. Time For Annihilation captures both these elements and delivers the true essence of Papa Roach,” says frontman Jacoby Shaddix. When asked about the move to Eleven Seven Music, Jacoby adds: "We wanted to work with a team who's focused on rock music rather than pop and urban. Moving to a successful indie Like Eleven Seven Music gives us that without sacrificing the manpower of a major. We are excited about the future of Papa Roach."
"Papa Roach has made a quantum leap in dynamics on the new recording. With the new studio tracks, the band has matched the intensity of their live show and truly put out a record that annihilates the listener. Their fans are in for an experience,” adds Frank Woodworth, General Manager for The Eleven Seven Music Group.
Catapulted by the success of their first #1 modern rock single, "Last Resort," Papa Roach have proven their spot as a premier alternative/rock act by delivering eight, Top 10 multi-format radio smashes and selling over 10 million albums worldwide. Known for their electrifying and explosive live shows, Papa Roach has become the common denominator for some of the most successful rock tours in recent years. The band's previous fifth studio recording, Metamorphosis debuted at #8 on The Billboard 200 album chart in April of 2009.
