Papa Roach frontman Jacoby Shaddix had some words to share about the bands new album which they have been working on with producer Kevin Churko (Five Finger Death Punch, In This Moment) and his son/protégé, Kane Churko. Speaking with Loudwire last night, Shaddix said of the sessions:
“…In the studio working with the one and the only Kevin and Kane Churko, father and son production combo, and we are making the sickest, most illest P-Roach record to date, guaranteed. It’s fiery, that’s how I explain it. It’s fiery. It’s like I’m holding a light orb in my hand and when I put it to the sky, I take off like a superhero if that makes any sense. It’s for real.”
Elaborating a bit more on the outing, he stated:
“We’ve got a song called ‘Just as Broken as Me‘ that’s about forgiveness when you don’t want to forgive but you know it’s the best thing to do. We have a song called ‘Never Have To Say Goodbye.’ It’s about a really good friend of mine who passed away the last couple of years. It’s just my song… I never got to say my piece, and he was someone who really helped me when I was down and out and helped me clean my life up and then I went out there and lived that wicked life again and when I was out there, he passed away. I’ve always had a hole in my heart from that so I decided to write a song about that.
What else? I just finished another song called ‘Face Everything and Rise,’ which is just the P-Roach mode of operation, you know. That’s what I’m all about. It’s about stepping up to your problems and connecting with my God and walking through those things.”
