Papa Roach are one of rock's hardest working bands and at present the group is in the early stages of recording their next album. However, Papa Roach frontman Jacoby Shaddix got a respite from the studio for a night to come out and hang with many of his hard rock brothers and sisters at the Revolver Golden Gods ceremony Wednesday (April 24) in Los Angeles.
In Part 1 of our exclusive ShipRocked interview with Papa Roach vocalist Jacoby Shaddix and bassist Tobin Esperance, the pair shared their thoughts on their maiden ShipRocked voyage and offered an update on their new album. In Part 2 (watch above), the conversation continues.
The 2014 ShipRocked cruise welcomed aboard many first time bands, including powerhouse rockers Papa Roach. Admittedly a little nervous about taking to the high seas, frontman Jacoby Shaddix quickly found his sea legs and the band delivered two of the most memorable sets on the cruise.
As the last day of ShipRocked got under way and the Norwegian Pearl began its descent back to Miami, it was time to make the most of what was left of our festival on the ocean and reflect back on what could best be described as a once-in-a-lifetime experience for any rock fan.
Papa Roach just enjoyed one last full blast of sunlight, performing as part of the ShipRocked Cruise. Those memories will have to last for a while as the band immediately went from fun and sun to the intimate confines of a recording studio.
Hangovers be damned, ShipRocked Day 2 kicked off on the private island of Great Stirrup Cay in the beautiful Bahamas. Rockers that rolled out of bed early enough were in for something special as Art of Dying officially kicked things off on the beach stage. With a high energy performance, Frontman Jonny Hetherington took a moment to take it all in calling the experience a true “bucket list” moment for his band. They wouldn’t be the only band to hit the beach stage on Monday though, Nonpoint also offered up a blazing set proving that it really is better in the Bahamas.
Congrats to Megadeth, who recently became the first Classic Cage Match Hall of Fame entrant with five straight wins. Now, it's time for two bands who delivered breakout hits in the year 2000 to do battle in the Classic Cage Match.
Brian 'Head' Welch, guitarist for Korn and frontman of Love and Death, contributes a popular monthly column called 'HeAd's KoRner' to Loudwire. In his newest entry, Head goes one-on-one with Papa Roach singer Jacoby Shaddix for a deeply revealing interview. Head also shares cellphone video of members of Korn and Papa Roach singing 'We're Not Gonna Take It' side stage during a Twisted Sister performance. Check out Brian 'Head' Welch's latest edition of 'Head's Korner' below:
Papa Roach have always had a close bond with their fanbase, so when the Make-A-Wish Foundation came knocking asking the band to participate in making one special fan’s dream come true, they were more than willing to be a part of the experience.
