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.

They should do a split EP with Hillary Duff. It'd be the worst selling record in music history. Well, actually, it might blow up considering Hillary Duff would be on it.

Wait...I just read it's to be released in "Ausgust". Is that like "Smarch"? Featuring contributions from Mick Mars?!?!? They might as well have driven a car through the studio walls during recording. Jacoby should go to rehab with Steven Tyler so he can quit sucking off his dog.

First, Papa Roach is f***ing good. What kind of music do you f***s listen to, My Chemical Romance or Fall out Boy? Or maybe you're one of those old a$$ self-righteous rockers who verbally rape any music that's not released by Maiden or Metallica. And ANYONE who knows the name of a Hilary Duff album should just shack up with that Pete Wentz fa**ot now. Maybe his balls will stifle the verbal abuse of an awesome band.

Im sorry if your offended by my comments xero, i do listen to more then maiden and metallica and my favorite band happens to be devildriver, and i listen to megadeth a lot more then metallica. And i dont think anyone on this site listens to MCR or fall out boy, read some comments they get downed often. And sometimes people cant help but see hilary duff in jacoby, in many ways they are both alike, for example, they both like men.

I'd also like to make that same declaration: I like Papa Roach too. Now all you metalheads can go suck a d*** for all I care. Any rock band labeled as "malcore" are obviously homosexual closetfans. Oh-em-gee. "Poppa smurf" yeah, it's old school. Try again, biotch.

As much as I quite dislike the new album title and sense the lame-a$$ ring to it when I hear it being announced in some radio stations, I think it does somehow suit the transition that Papa Roach's style have had in recent years. I mean, they've evolved almost drastically from Infest & LHT to GAWM and the whole rock/glam look minus the rock/rap has taken over their sound ever since. But then again, it's JUST an album title. I'm all up for some "diversity"--it's what makes this band so amazing. As long as Papa Roach can maintain the intensity and passion that they once had brought out from their earlier records, I'd be fine with it. But in festivals, definitely BRING THE MADNESS!

edit: f--king Hilary Duff fans are taking over this board. Seriously, what the f--k.

your all sad who cares what jacoby shaddix is like, if he's into men then why does it effect you. grow up. and if you dont like the music some1 else likes the keep your bloody nose out. music is music, every1 is different. not 1 of my mates would take the pi$$ for the music i listen to, they have more intresting things 2 fret about, and i listen to a very wide range of music, mainly metal. letting some1 elses choice of music or band bother you is sad. the world would be $hit if there was only 1 genre of music. i listen 2 who i want when i want, if some1 dont like it then dont bloody listen.

OMG I can not imagine being a big enough fan of Papa Scrot to have "Papa roach 4 life" as my s/n. The only thing I can think of is that you only listen to radio, or you've never heard any bands other than Mama Roach. I feel really sorry for you people that think Grandma Roach is even worth fighting for. You're on metalunderground not mtvjockbabymusic.

I most certainly agree, those type of people moust listen to nothing more than the raido.
And the radio plays nothing but sh** (unless yoiu have satellite radio, then they play a little bit of good stuff). But still nothing more than mainstream.

ok so they're not really PURE metal or would be classified totally "metal" but their sound has changed so much that the word most appropriate to use woudl be "progressive" or "experimental" ... maybe even straight hard rock. quit whining ppl.
