The genre-bending single also boasts LA-based lyricist Sueco and commences the band’s partnership with ADA Worldwide and the reactivation of their own label, New Noize Records.
Papa Roach have unveiled the next chapter in their long-tenured career with the introduction of a brand new, genre-melding single featuring one of alternative music’s most aggressively articulate voices in Jason Aalon Butler of Fever 333.
Debuting the Colin “Doc” Brittain and Nick Furlong (All Time Low, A Day To Remember, Avicii) produced “Swerve” via BBC Radio 1 Rock Show with Daniel P. Carter, the track showcases the versatility of veteran crew, boasting dynamic instrumentation and fluid turn of phrase in lyrical stanzas that as energetic as they are well-executed.
“This track came at the very end of the writing process for our upcoming album and truly feels like the culmination of years of experimenting with our sound coming back to a new version of Papa Roach,” shares the band’s undeniable frontman Jacoby Shaddix. “We’re kicking off this new chapter of our careers with a next-level track and couldn’t imagine doing it with anyone other than Jason and Sueco.”
Shaddix went on to address the visual component of the track and the kind creative environment that gelled for everyone involved. “Filming this music video with Jason and Sueco was one of the most fun experiences we’ve had and I am so excited to share it with the world.”
Speaking on the longevity of the band and his contribution to the band’s next chapter, Butler adds “I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again- this band has somehow managed to be a legacy AND relevant all at once. So, naturally, when I got the call to hop on this track there was no question. With Sueco doing his thing the track’s got 3 different vibes that all work together. This shit is different and that’s exactly what rock needs. More DIFFERENT Sh*t. Thanks to these modern legends for making sure it happened.”
Combined with the release of the latest collaborative effort, Papa Roach have also launched a new global distribution and marketing agreement with ADA Worldwide – a branch of WMG’s independent label and artist services. Added with the news of the new partnership also includes the reactivation of Papa Roach’s own label, New Noize Records. This marks the second incarnation of their early 2000’s label effort – revamped and refocused as the creative tempo “Swerve” suggests.
