Papa Roach Frontman Jacoby Shaddix on Making ‘The Connection,’ Sober Living + More

Liz Ramanand, Loudwire

Papa Roach have proven that they are ‘Still Swingin’ with their latest album ‘The Connection’ and their recent co-headlining tour with Stone Sour.

During the New York City stop of the trek, Loudwire had the chance to sit down with Papa Roach singer Jacoby Shaddix, who chatted with us about how his vocal cords are feeling after surgery, living a sober lifestyle and more.

The frontman talks about moving forward in a positive way, saying, ‘I can’t sit in the past and dwell on the past. I can’t worry about what was, just live in what is.” He also told us that making ‘The Connection’ helped saved his life. “There were these moments where I was spun out but music was there.”
