Yhdysvaltalainen rockyhtye Papa Roach on julkaisemassa seuraavan albuminsa vuoden 2022 alussa. Yhtye käytti koronan luoman keikkatauon edukseen albumia tehden ja nyt yhtyeen laulaja Jacoby Shaddix on kertonut tuoreessa Danny Whimmer Presentsin videohaastattelussa, että yhtye kävi läpi helvetin sekä taivaan tulevaa albumia tehdessään. Shaddixin mukaan mikäli hän koskaan urallaan on tekemässä Grammyn arvoista rockalbumia, olisi tuleva albumi juuri sellainen. Hän kertoi levyn teon hyvistä ja huonoista puolista seuraavaa:
”We’re always trying to push the bar. We’re always trying to raise the bar. We’re always trying to bring rock into the future. We’re always trying to be ahead of the game and come original with it. And sometimes we hit the mark and sometimes we miss it. But I’m telling you, this time I think we nailed it, man. I’m just over the moon. I’ll say it, if we ever made a Grammy-worthy rock album, this is it — straight up.
”I think the process of making this record, we kicked it off the right way. We were locked up in quarantine, and we just kept FaceTiming with each other, calling each other, like, ’Dude, I’m going crazy.’ Tobin [Esperance, PAPA ROACH bassist] hits me up, ’Bro, what are we gonna do, man? We’ve gotta do something. We’ve gotta get creative.’ And so we all locked up in this house down south in a place called Temecula and stayed there for a month and just started writing music. And it was like a floodgate opened. And it was, like, 24-7 — literally there was music happening for the better part of 24 hours a day, whether it’s editing or engineering or writing or recording or tracking. And by the time we got done with this process at this house, we all left like we were just destroyed. We had no energy left. Everybody needed to just get home and recharge. But it was such a great bonding experience for the boys and our producers and our engineers and just a really special time in our lives. And a lot of walls came down emotionally between us and it really made for great music. And we aired some grievances in the process and really got through some stuff together and came out on the other side of the process of this record feeling like, ’Man, we just went through hell and heaven to make this record. We’ve got something special.’ And it’s just really exciting.”
