Papa Roach

Story by Jack Foley

AFTER 10 years as a force at the forefront of the alternative rock scene, Papa Roach return in 2009 with their fifth studio album, Metamorphosis, and an extensive world tour.

Due out on March 24 via DGC/Interscope Records, Metamorphosis boasts a wealth of growth and bravado. It was written at the legendary Paramour Mansion and recorded at NRG Recording Studios.

The album was co-produced by Jay Baumgardener (311, Evanescence, Incubus) and Papa Roach. James Michael (Mötley Crüe, Sixx:A.M.) also co-produced five tracks.

The first official single, meanwhile, is called Lifeline and it’s already burning up radio playlists across North America, rising quickly in the top 20 at both Active and Alternative Rock radio.
