Jacoby Shaddix Reveals Papa Roach Are Working On Some “Heavy And Nuts” Music

In a recent interview with Zippo Encore, Papa Roach’s Jacoby Shaddix has revealed that the band have been working on the follow up to their 2019 record, ‘Who Do You Trust’.

“We went in for a second round of songwriting, and now we have, I think, seven or eight pieces of music for the next record. And we’re feeling good. We’re gonna be in the studio, I think probably in July/August time, cutting the new record and finishing up an album before September, I would think.

“And later on in the year, we’re gonna be dropping a new track. We’ve got a new record coming at the top of 2021.”

Moving into what shape the songs are in at the moment:

“The stuff we’re writing right now is fucking on fire, dude. Some of it’s just heavy and nuts and just aggressive with these massive, big, pummeling riffs. And then there’s other stuff that’s that kind of experimental all over the place type stuff.

We wrote this other song, like a ballad, where it’s just guitar and vocals, and it’s so stirring and emotional. This time has definitely stirred up something in the band that’s coming out really cool in the music.”

And when asked about his inspirations at the moment, Shaddix responded:

“For me, I’ve had some time for introspection, looking inside again. As I pull back the layers of myself as I grow older, I always find these little dark corners that I’ve gotta clear out. Honestly, I’ve gone back and listened to some of the lyrics I’m writing, and I’m going, ‘I’m putting it all out there.’ It’s almost like this time has gotten me in a space with no filter. Just lay it all out and I think that’s important. 

Though it’s also inspired by the world around us and we’re writing music that feels hopeful. I really feel that there are few song that have this fun hopeful vibe too and we haven’t had that in our music. I’m ready for some of that too, because I’m a pretty happy, joyous dude that’s got my dark corners and my dark edges but I also know how to have a good time, so I wanna make music that lifts people up as well. So I think that balance between the two is gonna make this next record special.”

Music Video Roundup 08/05/20

We’re back for another week! We have another roundup of ten music videos which have been recently released and they’re always some of my favourites! They’re not all within the same genre and they’re all different in some way or another but that means that there’s a little something for everyone here but enough talk, let’s get down to things.

The debut video this week is from Canadian Experimental duo Vile Creatures who have shared the debut video off their upcoming record, ‘Glory, Glory! Apathy Took Helm!’. This is ‘ You Who Has Never Slept’.

On the track, the band have said:

“Raissa and Dave are two wonderful people we met working our food truck, they knew we played music and offered to help us with a music video one day. Fast forward a few years and we were finally able to take them up on their generous offer. We rented out a theatre in small town Ontario for a day with a bunch of friends, and crafted this vision for the song. All of it was held together by the amazing work of Anita who starred in and choreographed the video. We were inspired by psychological and abstract horror films, most obviously Susprira. We wanted to craft a linear narrative that still kept you wondering and interested – our songs are long enough that any music video is really a short film.”

 

Next, we’re headed for a lockdown video where Bleed From Within have adapted to the current crisis for their video in ‘Night Crossing’.

This comes from their upcoming release in the form of ‘Fracture’, where the band have shot each of them playing their parts from their own home over a video call. The track also features a massive guest guitar solo from Matt Heafy of Trivium who jumps in on the video chat.

On this, the band have said:

“We’ve been eager to share this track since we finished it at the start of the year. This is classic Bleed From Within song structure and the groove is strong. Matt from Trivium chips in with such a tasty solo towards the end and he absolutely nails it. We’ve been chatting back and forth with him online for a while then after meeting at a show of theirs during Summer last year, the idea came around to get him involved on a new track. We created an opening and Matt’s part was decided. The video was inspired by the numerous video calls we’ve had amongst ourselves, friends, and family since entering lockdown. Something fun during these crazy times. Enjoy!”

 

Keeping things in Quarantine for just another video, we go to spend some family time with Papa Roach. Keeping in sentiment with the track, ‘Feel Like Home’, we see some lovely moments as the band get their families involved with some hijinks in just what is a lovely video we all need right now.

 

Heading over to London, specifically to South London for the fantastic Wallflower for a video to accompany, ‘Passwer-by’, which is the third single off their debut record, ‘Teach Yourself How To Swim’.

Guitarist / Vocalist Vini Moreira – Yeoell has said:

“‘Passer-by’ started life as something very different and slowly morphed into whatever the hell it is now. It was actually one of the first songs we wrote when we decided that we were writing an album so there was a whole list of things we wanted to achieve and write at this point. One of our goals was to write something more electronic, industrial & experimental. There’s a Rhodes piano on there, 808s, a Bass VI having replaced one of the guitars and some spoken word parts incorporated for good measure. With all the strangeness going on in the music, we felt the lyrics had to match so it’s a little bit surreal at times. The song is all about being left behind and looking back at a period of your life realising how little impact you really had on somebody’s life, and vice versa.”

 

How about an 8-bit video just to change things up?

That’s exactly what Soccer Mommy have done in order to launch a video tour for ‘Crawling In My Skin’. This track is off their second record, ‘Color Theory’, which dropped in February of this year ahead of what should’ve been a stacked summer of touring which was ultimately cancelled due to the Covid-19 Pandemic

On the release of the 8-Bit video, the band have said:

“It’s really hard having our tour be postponed because I was really excited to play all of the songs on color theory for everyone, ‘crawling in my skin’ in particular,” Allison says. “I hope this little 8-bit performance can hold everyone over until the tour can happen.”

 

Who’s up for a little bit of Punk Rap? We hed to Nascar Aloe in a new track for ‘Feet’ which is all about…. Well, you guessed it….. Feet!

Who’s up for a little bit of building to get us through quarantine?

Now, this video comes from Jinjer fan Mychailo Halinin who constructed this video by himself and it’s entirely made out of LEGO! That’s right, it’s a stop motion video which is a remake of Jinjer’s ‘Perennial’ which was released way back in January of this year.

The band were so impressed they reached out to Halinin so they could share it on their social’s to everyone following and so far at the time of writing, it’s reached 77K

 

Next, for a little something outside the norm of the genres but a great video nevertheless is Cheerbleederz’s ‘Sometimes I Cry At Work’. This is off the band’s second EP, ‘Lobotany’ which is available now via Alcopop! Records.

“It’s the internal conversation to try and find the truth of what you really want and how sometimes that truth can be really hard to find.

“It speaks to a feeling of inadequacy and imposter syndrome that can plague you and prevent you from achieving what you want to achieve. When we play it, we really channel that frustration and defiance in Sophie’s lyrics — it’s an empowering song for us!”

 

Moving to Bristol we have the upstarts RXPTRS with their release, ‘You, Me and The Devil Makes Three’. This is the band’s latest single where they explain:

“‘You, Me And The Devil Make Three’ is a song written about a group of people in my life, who are talented beyond measure in their fields, but also have their own vices which make them their own worst enemies. The ‘Devil’ in this, is the metaphor for the personality trait that holds these individuals back.”

 

And now for the final video in this week’s countdown is a lot different but as soon as I heard and watched this, I knew I had to have it on here.

The band is called The Hu, a Mongolian Folk-Metal band who are proving to be a big hit right now where they will be celebrating a release of a deluxe version of their record, ‘The Gereg’. This is set to be released in July where the release includes three reworked tracks featuring Jacoby Shaddix (Papa Roach), Danny Case (From ashes To New and for this video Lzzy Hale of Halestorm with, ‘Song Of Women’.

On the collaboration with The Hu, Lzzy says:

“I’m so thankful to the HU for welcoming me, my words and my melody into this song,” Hale commented. “I can count on less than one hand the number of times where a project has changed the course of my spirit and renewed my faith in humanity. This was one of those projects. I’m still levitating.”

Check out the video below.

 

And that’s it for another week of the music video roundup! Be sure to check back next week for another look at the latest music video releases from the best bands around and who knows? Maybe you’ll find your new favourite band on that list.

Music Video Roundup 07/06/19

It’s 4PM on a Friday! This means it’s time for the music video roundup. If you’re new to either the blog or these music video roundup posts, this is how it works. Every week, I watch some of the best recently released music videos and compile them into a list for everyone’s viewing pleasure. They’re span across all the different genres, so expect something different for most of the tracks.

The first band on this weeks roundup are The Dangerous Summer. They’re gearing up for the released of their sixth record, ‘Mother Nature’ as they’ve released a video in which one mans attempts to learn to surf. Check out ‘Bring Me Back To Life’ below.

 

We’re moving to Las Vegas for the band Amarionette as they’re getting into their own sound with the video of ‘No Control’. It’s a follow up to their Spring release ‘Compromise’ which also featured Kurt Travis (Ex-Dance Gavin Dance)

 

How about some Liverpool Emo? Decay has recently dropped a video for ‘Slow Decline’, the bands new single off their upcoming EP, ‘Modern Conversation’.

Vocalist Danny Reposar has said:

“This song tells the story of how my mother’s death affected my dad. I watched him lose interest in everything and fall victim to excessive drinking. As time went on he’d lock himself in the house and drink the days away hoping to forget about his grief and erase the past three years. It’s a song for anyone that’s had to watch the people around them wither and fade; it’s for the people that don’t come from that perfect home. Your situation doesn’t define you.”

 

British metalcore favourites Heart Of A Coward are continuing their appetite for destruction in their video for ‘Ritual’. This is the third single which features on their forthcoming record, ‘The Disconnect’ which will be the first record with Kaan Tasan (No Consequence)

 

Next is a track from their latest record, ‘End Of Suffering’ which was shot by Kate Cox, it is the fantastic Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes.

“I was inspired by Frank’s commitment to create safe spaces for women at gigs,” says Kate. “I always want to create female-driven narratives so when I heard the track and had the idea of female vampires living in a seaside town, transforming men into more female vamps we both instantly knew it was right for Kitty Sucker! It has been an absolute dream to work with such a talented creatively generous band.“

Check out ‘Kitty Sucker’ below.

 

Moving to Dublin, the three-piece Bitch Falcon have debuted a huge new track. ‘Panther’ is out now but here’s something more.

“Panther is about being blind in the present,” says vocalist Lizzie, “letting everything around you move on as you sit dwelling in numbness. It’s a realisation that you’re stuck in between your emotions and physical reactions come first before really understanding how you feel “Only the tears spilled show me what I want.”

 

Switching things way up to death metal this time is the legendary Cannibal Corpse. They’re a band known for their dark videos but here the video sees adult performs in POV attacking and killing each other in a gruesome way.

 

Keeping things on the heavyish side of things, I’m moving to the legendary Papa Roach where back when they toured the UK, they shot a video for their latest single, ‘Not The Only One’. the video shows vocalist Jacoby Shaddix cycling down streets in a race against time for their set!

 

Everyone at this point knows just who Man With A Mission are, right? They’ve just released a huge new EP called ‘Remember Me’ and it just so happens that the title track is their new music video.

 

And finally, we have to go with some legends. That is the only amazing, trailblazing and utterly fabulous Rammstein. They’ve just released their latest self-titled record but this is their last video before its release.

And that’s it for another week of music video roundup. Don’t forget to check back next week at 4PM sharp for another countdown of ten of the best recent music videos to feast your eyes upon. There’s also new posts every day on the Almost anything Media so be sure to check out anything that might catch your eye.
