New Noize Records/ADA

Papa Roach has released the first song from their upcoming new album.

Titled “Swerve,” the defiant rap-metal track features vocals by Fever 333‘s Jason Aalon Butler and LA rapper Sueco, aka Sueco the Child.

“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,” says frontman Jacoby Shaddix in a statement. “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.”

“This is one of the favorite songs I’ve ever made,” Sueco adds. “Papa Roach has been an inspiration of mine since I was a kid, so working with them was super dope and a dream come true!” 

As for Butler, he says of Papa Roach, “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.”

Butler adds, “With Sueco doing his thing the track’s got 3 different vibes that all work together. This s**t is different and that’s exactly what rock needs. More DIFFERENT S**t. Thanks to these modern legends for making sure it happened.”

Papa Roach is also announcing that they’ve reactivated their early 2000s label, New Noize Records. No word yet on when we can expect the new album, which will be the follow-up to 2019’s Who Do You Trust?
