In an interview with Anchorage, Alaska’s KWHL-FM, Papa Roach frontman Jacoby Shaddix revealed their new album is set to launch in early 2015. He adds,

The album’s called ‘F.E.A.R. (Face Everything and Rise),’ and it’s a banger.

The band has been working with producer Kevin Churko to incorporate elements of hard rock, heavy metal, pop and other genres into the new album. Papa Roach made a conscious decision to go straight from touring into the studio while they were in a good place. Shaddix says,

It was like the floodgates opened, to be completely honest. This record, if I were to die tomorrow, I’d be happy with this being my last statement as a musician.
