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.
