Jacoby Shaddix Says Papa Roach Are “Still Thriving With This Youth Culture”


With a lengthy career that began in the early 90s and their last RIAA album certification having been awarded back in 2005, Papa Roach don’t view themselves as a legacy band. Their recent prolific output aside, the band’s frontman Jacoby Shaddix says he has to look no further than fresh faces in the front row of the band’s shows as proof to this assertion, recently telling Kerrang!:

“We know there is a future for us because we’re still thriving with this youth culture – it’s all kids in the front row. Most of them probably weren’t even born when our shit first dropped, but we have that same intensity we always had.”

The band are gearing up to release their tenth full-length album, “Who Do You Trust?“, on January 18th. Shaddix also spoke of that new record to Kerrang!, commenting in part: “It is very eclectic. It’s like musical ADD, but still an evolution for the album.”

You can find the band out on the road again in North America starting next month on this tour with Shinedown and Asking Alexandria.
