MTV reports Papa Roach are in a West Hollywood studio working on the follow-up to last year’s Infest with producer Brendan O’Brien completing the drum parts on 14 songs for the as-yet-untitled effort. The disc is due to drop in June.
Papa Roach won the Radio Music Award on Friday for ‘Rock Alternative Song of the Year’ for their hit ‘Last Resort’. Kobe Dick and David Buckner accepted as Kobe said, “Well, every time I’ve received or not me, but the band has received one of these, I’m usually drunk and act like a complete idiot when I receive it. So I’m sober. So today is a good night. So I can actually make sense. And I’d like to say thanks to first and foremost, my man D-boy on the drums. Tobin and Jerry on the guitar. They couldn’t be here. Dreamworks Records. I’m dumbfounds right now. Family, friends. Everybody that comes to our shows, that bought our album. We are going in to write another record and this is an awesome way to kind of leave the year. So thank you very much!” Buckner then spoke in Spanish… I think.
Getmusic.com had an audio chat with Papa Roach’s Coby Dick earlier today. Coby chatted nearly an hour with Nevin Martell about touring (including a Mexico stop) and upcoming album work, the terror attacks and battle in Afghanistan, upgrading the band’s website to have updates from the road, and even Coby taking a bong hit! Cobe says his wife is pregnant expecting a child next April. Coby also talked about the dangers of groupies. The audio has since been removed.
