Papa Roach releases his 11th studio album “EGO TRIP”

After two years of work and nearly 10 months of excitement with fans, Papa Roach today celebrates the release of his eleventh studio album EGO TRIP.

An album that sprouted almost by mistake in the throes of a global lockdown, its seeds were planted when the quartet entered a COVID-secured mansion in Temecula, California in the summer of 2020. What started as an escape and an exercise in keeping the creative juices flowing, in a world that had come to a complete stop, quickly transformed into something bigger. Determined, defiant and just the right side of the line between confident and arrogant (“I really hope [the album title] stop a few people in their tracks,” frontman Jacoby Shaddix sneers), EGO TRIP is Papa Roach – complete with guitarist Jerry Horton, bassist Tobin Esperance and drummer Tony Palermo – at its boldest and brightest.

“Throughout my life, I’ve embarked on this constant journey to untangle this…thing,” Jacoby begins of the inspiration behind EGO TRIP. “This eternal paradigm; this struggle between light and dark. I see it alive in the world and it’s something I’m constantly trying to balance with my own life. Who is driving my ego? Is it the high frequency version of myself, the one that is more spiritual and self-aware, or is it the low frequency version that can be egotistical, self-centered, and egotistical? Throughout the process of creating this record, we’ve had some really deep conversations about life, who drives our egos, and what drives and motivates us.

Fans had a chance to dive into the singles “Cut The Line”, “Rise”, “die believing it”, “kill the noise“(which held the No. 1 position on the Mainstream Rock Charts for over a month) and a single’s genre banger”Yawfeaturing Jason Aalon Butler (Fever 333) and Sueco over the past few months, but they’re in for a treat with a handful of new songs, including “No Apologies,” a catchy, quintessential modern rock anthem the band is all about. known. All 14 tracks were culled from a 2020 writing session with the iconic rock band and a tight-knit creative team including familiar collaborators Colin “Doc” Brittain, Nick Furlong, Jason Evigan and new team members WZRD BLD and Andrew Goldstein.
In addition to these past releases, Papa Roach has connected with fans through unique partnerships with ICT Tac, San Francisco 49ersTwitter, ESPN UFC and more. The group also took over the iconic Shakey’s Pizza on Santa Monica Blvd in Los Angeles for a one-of-a-kind release party last night.
EGO TRIP is available to stream and purchase today via New Noize Records, the band’s revived label with its 2001 roots, in partnership with ADA Worldwide (WMG’s independent label and artist services arm) at
