Papa Roach was a little bit surprised by positive response to new songs


Papa Roach guitarist Jerry Horton was interviewed by Kaaos TV, you can read some excerpts below.


About the fan response to Papa Roach's new album, "F.E.A.R.", which was released on January 27, Jerry Horton said: "We've had lots of good feedback, which is... You know, it's a little bit surprising, because the album is different, and it sounds different from the last record. But even people that are not die-hard Papa Roach fans, like on the festivals that we've been doing, people are jumping up and down. Just at the end of the song, they're showing that they like that one. And it's good. We're excited about it."

About In This Moment's Maria Brink as a guest on "F.E.A.R.", Horton said: "It seems like with every record that we do, when we talk about doing it and what our goals are, the idea of having a collaboration comes up. And we've talked about having a female vocalist for quite a few years, but we could never agree on anything... on anyone between us. And then we were on tour with Shinedown and In This Moment a couple of years ago, and decided that we were gonna work with the producer Kevin Churko that did In This Moment's previous albums and learned that we would be in the studio at the same time. So we said, 'Okay, are you down for this? Do you wanna do a song with us?' And she said, 'Of course.' So immediately we all said, 'Okay. Cool. We just have to find the right song for her to sing on.'"
