Papa Roach Announces New Album Title

Papa Roach have changed the title of their new album from "Days Of War, Nights Of Love" to "Metamorphosis". Lead singer Jacoby Shaddix explains:

"The album's titled 'Metamorphosis' and the album is just that," he said. "There's some stuff that's, like, harder and faster on this record that we, you know, have kind of delved away from for a little while. But then also there's, like, a polarity to that. It's like, for us it was just, you know, just kicking down new doors. That's what we do all the time with our music. It's definitely a diverse record, and some of the most powerful music we've written."

The album is expected to be released around late August/ early September and will apparantly feature contributions from Motley Crue guitarist Mick Mars.

Drowning Pool Singer Slams Papa Roach

Drowning Pool vocalist Ryan McCombs has posted two blogs recently regarding a show the band performed with Papa Roach, Alter Bridge and Rev Theory. Check them out below:

"The powers that be have been after me for some time to write another blog. Hell, at one point it was even suggested that I try to start some controversy with some other acts. You know the old 'no such thing as bad press' BS. It was suggested that I take a shot at Kid Rock one time. WHAT??? Here's a dude that marches the same path we do supporting our troops. Yeah, right, I'll get right on that.

"Actually, I will, but not at Kid Rock. Hell, I respect the guy — why would I do that?! I need a reason to be a prick. Anyone out there that knows me knows that much. So let me get to it. Let me make everyone happy.

"I'm sitting here in Mt. Clemens, Michigan at a radio show for WRIF, a bad-ass station up here in these parts. On the bill tonight was four bands that led us to look forward to this show tonight. REV THEORY, who we've been on the road with for a few shows here the past couple of weeks. ALTER BRIDGE, who I have no idea about, and PAPA ROACH, who happens to be 10th Street (our management) family of ours. Family, my ass. More...

Papa Roach Reveal New Album Title

PAPA ROACH has set "Days of War, Nights of Love" as the title of its new album, tentatively due before the end of the year. Jay Baumgardner, veteran producer and head of NRG Studios, has been tapped to produce and mix the CD, which will be recorded later this spring. PAPA ROACH returns to its roots with Baumgardner, and is looking to duplicate the energy brought together for the band's debut album, "Infest", which remains the group's best-selling album to date with nearly 3.5 million copies sold.

PAPA ROACH recently permanently split with longtime drummer Dave Buckner, according to a message posted by frontman Jacoby Shaddix. The singer wrote, "We are going through a lot of changes right now...Change is good — it keeps things fresh. For y'all that don't know, we had to split with Dave, our drummer. It was one of the hardest things we have ever had to do. He's taking this time to get his life together. We are still friends and still talk on a regular basis. The road is a hard place to live, and if you are falling apart, it will destroy you. He will be missed."

Buckner first left the band while on tour last spring, entering rehab to deal with substance abuse issues. He returned over the summer, but exited again later in the year. Shaddix told The Pulse of Radio that going back on tour might not have been the best thing for the drummer. "Really, the road ain't a place to heal, you know what I'm saying?" he said. "It's like, the road is, if you're not healthy, it's not gonna make you any better, you know what I'm saying. And so, for him, he just had to just go step away from it again, you know, so...the show must go on."

UNWRITTEN LAW drummer Tony Palermo filled in for Buckner on tour, but it's not clear if he will become a fulltime member of PAPA ROACH.

Shaddix also indicated in his post that PAPA ROACH will head back to the Paramour Mansion in Los Angeles to begin writing its new album. The group wrote and recorded its last effort, 2006's "The Paramour Sessions", at the same location.

Motley Crue To Tour With Drowning Pool And More?

MÖTLEY CRÜE is rumored to be teaming up with several other acts from the Tenth Street Entertainment management stable — BUCKCHERRY, PAPA ROACH and DROWNING POOL — for a U.S. tour that will kick off in early July. Unconfirmed reports suggest that the trek will go out under the moniker Cruefest — which is not to be confused with the association that organizes concerts at various locations around the world throughout the year to raise money for the various CRÜE-affiliated charities (including Skylar Neil Memorial Fund, Nikki Sixx's Running Wild in the Night foundation, Tommy Lee's charity of choice St. Jude Children's Research Hospital and Mick Mars' charity Spondylitis Association of America).

CRÜE will officially announce its touring plans on April 15 in Los Angeles, according to a press release. All four members of the group will be present at a location yet to be determined for what the release hyped as "by far...one of the biggest music announcements of the year!!" The band is also launching a contest in which one grand prize winner from each major city in the country will be flown to Los Angeles to cover the announcement, complete with a chance to interview the band and have the interview broadcast live. Details can be found at the official CRÜE site.

The band is currently working on its ninth studio album and first featuring all four original members since 1997's "Generation Swine". Bassist Nikki Sixx said in an online posting, "Tommy's (Lee, drums) kickin' ass, Vince (Neil, vocals) sounds insane and (Mick) Mars is shredding on guitars. It doesn't feel like one song is better or worse than any other. It feels so good to be excited about something you've worked on so hard...I'm so excited for you all to hear it."

The album, titled "The Dirt" after the group's memoir of the same name, is tentatively due out on July 8.

Papa Roach Drummer Checks Into Rehab

Launch Radio Networks reports: PAPA ROACH drummer Dave Buckner is not on the road with the band at the moment due to what a press release called "personal matters," and singer Jacoby Shaddix checked in to give Launch the straight story. "Dave, he went to rehab and went to go clean his act up 'cause he was out of his f***ing mind," Shaddix explained. "We were kind of tripping for a minute, but we were like, 'You know what? The best thing is for our friend to just get healthy, you know, get right.'My boy D-Boy's just gotta do a little soul-searching, you know? 'Cause I've been through that same s*** myself, and I've been down that road and that whole nine and it's like, you know, I know how miserable you could get."

Until Buckner returns in June, PAPA ROACH has recruited UNWRITTEN LAW drummer Tony Palermo to fill in. Shaddix told Launch how it felt to have someone different behind the kit. "It was really kind of like scary, 'cause I mean, you know, drummer, it's like every drummer's a little bit different, you know," he said. "But this guy came in and just, he's been ripping it every night. So it's been kind of interesting, it's been different, but it's been really fun."

PAPA ROACH is on the Door to Dorm Tour with HINDER and plays Tuesday night (May 1) at the University of South Carolina in Aiken.

Shaddix also said that following a trip to Europe in June, PAPA ROACH will go out with HINDER and BUCKCHERRY on a two-month U.S. tour beginning in July.
