Papa Roach no longer have any pretence about being a metal band. Everyone may have heard of them first time out through the nu metal angst of ‘Last Resort‘, but they’re nothing to do with that anymore – and haven’t been for bloody ages. Eighth album The Connection (yes, Papa Roach have been around long enough to make eight albums – how old do you feel now?) is overtly radio-friendly rock for mainstream consumption.

Interview: Benji Webbe of Skindred talks about Union Black, Papa Roach and his dreadlocks

April 20th, 2011

Welsh ragga punks, Skindred are releasing their fourth album, Union Black on 25 April 2011. We thought it would be a good idea to ask frontman, Benji Webbe a bunch of questions about the album. It’s a good idea!

Expectations are very high for the new Union Black record. What were the main differences when writing and recording this album?
It was killer to record our fourth record in the UK, with British producer James “Le Rock” Loughrey. All our other albums have been recorded in the States with an American dude producing, so it’s different working over here in the snow and cold rather than the sun of LA and Florida. It’s UK all the way this time baby.
