Papa Roach Explore New Musical Direction With New Song ‘Warriors’
Papa Roach have given fans a taste of their new album ‘F.E.A.R.' by unleashing a new song titled ‘Warriors.’ The band released the track via their Facebook page over the weekend. The song, which is not an official single, is the first track given the light of day off ‘F.E.A.R.,' which will arrive in January.
‘Warriors’ kicks off with what sounds like an EDM intro with danceable keyboards before the band comes rocking in with the main riff. The song features Slaughterhouse rapper Royce Da 5’9, who drops a verse over the bridge. The track harkens back to early P-Roach by fusing heavy riffs with their hip-hop influence.
Papa Roach will release their new album ‘F.E.A.R.,’ which is an acronym for ‘Face Everything And Rise,’ on Jan. 27, via Eleven Seven Music. It marks the group’s first new effort since 2012’s ‘The Connection.’
Frontman Jacoby Shaddix calls ‘F.E.A.R.,’ “the sickest, most illest P-Roach record to date.” He added, “It’s fiery. It’s like I’m holding a light orb in my hand and when I put it to the sky, I take off like a superhero if that makes any sense. It’s for real.”
Papa Roach will head overseas soon for a European tour kicking off in Frankfurt, Germany on Oct. 24. Check out their complete tour dates here.
