Papa Roach, ‘Time for Annihilation’ — Album Preview
For Papa Roach, diversity has been the name of the game, topping the charts at the beginning of the decade with ‘Last Resort’ — a song everyone knows the words to, no matter if you like it or not. The California foursome never settled into the niche of a hit by trying to recreate the song over and over; they evolved.
“It’s the best of both worlds,” frontman Jacoby Shaddix said while describing ‘Time for Annihilation … on the Record and on the Road,’ which is the band’s first album since leaving a major label umbrella.
Rather than go full force with a record of all new material for their seventh full length, ‘Time for Annihilation’ boast five new songs intertwined with nine live cuts highlighting the band’s ever-changing catalog.
Beyond the captured live songs and the new material, the album closes with a personal message from Shaddix encouraging fans to text-donate to WhyHunger, an organization the band has long supported, to help bring food and aid to those in poverty.
