Musical evolution. It’s what every band strives for, but few successfully achieve from one record to the next. Then there’s Papa Roach.

In 2000, the group scored triple platinum success with the scathing rap and metal hybrid Infest. Embracing an if it ain’t broke, fix it anyway strategy, the band returned two years later with the tortured, despairing Lovehatetragedy, a ripping album devoid of hip-hop beats and raps. But it’s the new disc Getting Away With Murder with which Papa Roach take their most mature and daring leap.

“We really wanted to do something new and continue to grow,” frontman Jacoby Shaddix says. “We’ve always felt like outsiders, so, we’ve just sat in our own little category and done what we believe in.”

“We’re really big fans of transformation,” adds drummer Dave Buckner. “But each time we reinvent ourselves, we do it without abandoning who we were in the first place.”

Unlike the many musicians who have changed their sound in accordance with the trends of the day, Papa Roach have developed by turning a deaf ear to the whims of the industry and the advice of so-called experts. As Shaddix sings in the chorus of the album’s first song “Not Listening,” “The more I learn, the more I ignore.”

“There are always outside forces trying to tell you what to do,” Shaddix says. “So, we just put up our middle finger to critics and other people, and said, ‘We’re gonna do what we’re gonna do.’ We stand up for ourselves as a band, and our message to our fans is to shut yourself off from anyone who wants to run the show, and run it yourself.”

Now, the show is running like a finely-tuned vintage sports car. From the time they formed in 1993 up until the release of Lovehatetragedy, the band was angry and nihilistic, lashing out haphazardly at a chaotic and uncaring world. It was easy to get hooked in by their propulsive riffs and energized beats and become a part of their cesspool of communal rage, but there wasn’t a whole lot of room for good vibes. The new Papa Roach is much more upbeat and even more captivating.
