Are Papa Roach working on album no.10?

It looks as if Papa Roach are back in the studio and working on what will be their 10th album.

The band posted an image of a white board across their social media platforms, suggesting that they’ve completed pre-production and drums for what could be the follow-up to 2017’s Crooked Teeth.

Papa Roach have some downtime before they head back out on the road from next month, where they have dates planned in the US and Europe, including an appearance at the Reading and Leeds festivals on August 25 and 26.

In May, frontman Jacoby Shaddix spoke about his 2017 vocal cord surgery which forced the band to pull the plug on a handful of live shows, adding: “I've learned a lot about myself and my emotions, but also a lot about my voice and the importance of being able to live a life to support my career.”
