BAND DEBUTS SINGLE DURING MLB ALLSTARS HOME RUN DERBY
Rock berserkers and multi hit-makers Papa Roach have announced the title to their hotly anticipated upcoming fall album. The Connection is set for release on October 1st on Eleven Seven Music. The new album was recorded at the band’s hometown studio, The Red House in Sacramento, CA and was produced by rock veteran James Michael (Sixx:A.M., Halestorm) and John Feldmann (Panic at the Disco, The Used, Escape the Fate). Last month, Papa Roach gave fans details on their sixth album during a live chat, hosted on the band’s website which saw frontman Jacoby Shaddix, guitarist Jerry Horton, bassist Tobin Esperance and drummer Tony Palermo interact with fans from around the world.
The first single from The Connection will be Still Swingin’ (produced by John Feldman), which many fans may have heard during last night’s Major League Baseball All Stars Home Run Derby on ESPN. The track will be featured by ESPN/MLB in select games/events for the next few weeks. “Still Swingin” is due for release on September 2nd.
