Fans of Papa Roach may be treated with a surprise next year, as the band is allegedly preparing and organizing things slowly for a possible new album release and tour in 2016.
In a report by Blabbermouth, guitarist Jerry Horton revealed the plans of the band for the next year including hints of new songs and a new set of tour dates to continue promoting their early 2015 release, "F.E.A.R. (Face Everything And Rise).
"It's really kind of up in the air," Horton talked about the future for Papa Roach including new album plans. "We talked about taking a break for a while, but also writing. But at the same time, there might be a couple of tours that we wanna do. So we're really kind of seeing how everything is gonna pan out, just because we don't wanna commit to any one thing just quite yet."
Furthermore, although they haven't completed anything yet so far, the guitarist still revealed that they are looking good for a follow up release, revealing the progress of the group.
"We don't have [completed] songs [at this point], but there's always ideas floating around," he said. "There's riffs and stuff recorded already, but Jacoby [Shaddix, vocalist] hasn't dug in yet. So it's just kind of music at this point."
Apart from their new album news, Papa Roach recently told Loud Wire in an interview what they thought about their record "F.E.A.R."
In an interview, the frontman explained how he thinks their seventh studio effort is one of the "sickest" out of all their releases, claiming how he feels like a superhero because of the disc.
"[F.E.A.R. is] the sickest, most illest P-Roach record to date," Shaddix said. "It's fiery. It's like I'm holding a light orb in my hand and when I put it to the sky, I take off like a superhero if that makes any sense. It's for real."
Although there are no official words as of now, fans expect the new album from Papa Roach could come out in late 2016 or in 2017.
