Papa Roach have given fans a taste of their forthcoming ninth album with a video for their new single Help. The track was premiered by Radio 1’s Daniel P. Carter as his ‘Rockest Record’ and is available across all digital streaming platforms via Eleven Seven Music. Their as yet unamed new album is expected to be released in May.
Help was produced by Nicholas “Ras” Furlong and Colin Brittian, who grew up listening to Papa Roach and inspired the band to revisit some of their early influences. “We really followed our instincts and tried something unproven,” explains Furlong. “We ended up morphing the band’s best ‘old school’ traits into a courageous and more adventurous version of Papa Roach in the 21st Century.” Lyrically the new offering, touches on the personal, yet relatable, theme that surrounds the universal struggle of surviving mental health issues.
Papa Roach teased fans late last year with the viral release of Crooked Teeth, which is nearing 2M streams on Spotify. Featuring one of the album’s more unorthodox moments — the 808 bass drop into a metal breakdown – Crooked Teeth is exciting the online community and fans all over the world who are expecting an album as dynamic as their classics Infest and Getting Away with Murder.
Papa Roach will be heading out on a Canadian tour with Sum 41 during April, followed by a handful of US festival dates. More dates will be announced soon via their website: www.paparoach.com/tour
