After two years of work and nearly 10 months of building up excitement with fans, Papa Roach have released their eleventh studio album, Ego Trip today. Listen to it now below.
Ego Trip’s seeds were planted when Papa Roach entered a COVID-secure 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 completely ground to a halt, quickly grew into something bigger.
“Throughout my life I’ve embarked on this constant journey to unravel this…thing,” said Jacoby on the inspiration behind Ego Trip. “This eternal paradigm; this struggle between the light and the dark. I see it alive in the world and it’s something I’m constantly trying to find balance in with regards to my own life. Who is at the wheel of my ego? Is it the high-frequency version of myself, the one who is more spiritual and self-aware, or is it the low-frequency version who can be selfish, self-centered and self-seeking? Throughout the process of making this record, we had some really profound conversations about life, who is at the helm of our egos and what it is that drives and motivates us.”
Papa Roach just wrapped up their first headlining tour in three years with the first leg of their North American “Kill The Noise Tour” featuring very special guests Hollywood Undead and Bad Wolves. The band will be back on the road for a string of dates with Highly Suspect next month and are making a handful of festival appearances across the United States.
