After a couple of months worth of teasing, Papa Roach’s frontman Jacoby Shaddix confirmed that the band has enough new material to release a follow-up to 2017’s Crooked Teeth.
Today, Oct. 5, the band shared two of those newly created tracks, "Renegade Music" and "Who Do You Trust?," the latter track also being accompanied by a music video.
Listen to "Renegade Music" below:

Papa Roach new album, what we know so far:
Back in June, the band took to social media where they shared a black and white photo of a whiteboard with a series of “to-do’s."
While there wasn't much to go on, it looked as though the band has completed pre-preproduction and drums for a new album. The picture led fans to believe new album was in the works, and it turns out they were right.
The band has yet to reveal further information on their 10th studio album, but it was recently reported that the band's frontman confirmed they did have something in the works.
A few months ago, Loudwire reported Shaddix told the Morning Moose show the band already has new material. “We have 13 or 14 songs written and recorded, and we feel we have a lot of really great material,” he revealed.
The frontman also shared that the new music is a departure from the band’s sound:
“There’s a few songs that we’re challenging our fans, like, ‘Hey, are you gonna come down this road with us?'” Shaddix explained. “And the material we’re writing we just feel is just great. It’s so inspiring and just unique and different and rocking and anthemic and passionate. It’s undeniable.”
While we wait for further details of the band's new record, we'll be listening to these new tracks!
