While frontman Jacoby Shaddix recovers from vocal surgery, Papa Roach have unleashed the video for ‘Still Swingin,’ the first single off their upcoming album ‘The Connection’ (due Oct. 2).
The video shows the band performing atop a rooftop along with scenes of a zombie narrative that was suggested by Shaddix’s 7-year-old son. Of the tune itself, Shaddix told us in an exclusive interview, “It is the most important statement for the band. I think it just says a lot about P-Roach. It’s about my personal life, my highs and lows and what I’ve gone through and I’m a f—in’ survivor dude. I’m a fighter. I think it’s taking a challenge and I’m always willing to step up to it and I’m not going to go out without a fight. And P-Roach, we’re the band that no matter what we’re f—ing up against, we’re gonna prevail.”
As for Shaddix’s condition, he just underwent corrective surgery to remove a nodule on his left vocal cord. The procedure forced Papa Roach to drop off the Uproar Festival tour, but the band hopes to be back on the road in the fall.
