Having just released their sixth album, Metamorphosis, Papa Roach frontman, Jacoby Shaddix went on camera to talk about how the Californian rockers wanted to make “a bit more of a socially conscious record”.

Apparently the eyelinered, mid-30s rockers have run out things to moan about themselves so stopped to look at people losing their jobs and homes and their friends living off credit cards and wracking up mad debts for inspiration.

The 32-year-old can identify with those people because his family was homeless for his first year on the planet. He wrote the song ‘Lifeline’ whilst thinking about that. Everyone imagine a baby Coby Dick. Aaaaah.

Papa Roach are performing at Download Festival 2009 and is working with Californian charity, Loaves and Fishes who support those who are losing their homes.
