Papa Roach have tentative plans to head into the studio toward the end of this year to work on a new album. Singer Jacoby Shaddix tells Loudwire that the band may start laying down tracks in November.

“I think in November we’ll start getting crafty again, we own a studio in Sacramento and we just want to make the record of our career," Shaddox tells us. "That’s the goal and we’re always trying to do that and every time we make a record we have a chance to do that."

He also reports that Papa Roach is taking a little vacation from touring following the upcoming Rock Allegiance Tour. After being on the road nonstop, “we’re ready for a much needed break,” says Shaddix.

Shaddix hints that the band is eyeing a late 2012 release date for the new album. "Probably like later next year, something like that," he reveals. "We might get in the studio and be like we need a little more time or we can get in the studio and say, 'Dude we got a bad-ass record ready to go, let’s do this!'"

For now, Shaddix is looking forward to co-headlining the Rock Allegiance Tour, which kicks off Aug. 24 in Grand Prairie, Texas, and wraps up Sept. 25 in Sacramento, Calif. The trek also features Buckcherry, Puddle of Mudd, P.O.D, Crossfade, Red and Drive A.

"For us, this is our last hoorah; it’s our last run before we go away for a while," says Shaddix of Rock Allegiance. "If you want to see P-Roach, this is when you got to get it."
